“Bid me run, and I will strive with things impossible.”
― William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
Alex's Cross Country career was marked by high points and low points. He certainly wasn't one of the fastest kids on the team, but he stuck with it - even after an injury that put an end to running during most of his Junior year. He made lots of friends and many great memories.
The good news is that Alex still likes running and I'm looking forward to him running with me during my future half-marathons. After all, we've both signed up to complete half-marathons in at least 25 states of the good old USA.
Thank yous go out to his Troy Athens High School Cross Country Coaches Michael Stallsmith and Shawn DuFresne.
Also thank yous to Alex's teammates and all of the Cross Country parents. Cross Country at Athens is truly a family affair.
I've embedded some photos below of Alex running Cross Country for Athens High School and from the 11/15/14 Cross Country banquet.
