Many of you know our nephew, Zachary, runs cross country for the Farmington Knights (Farmington,Mo High).
He is in one of those teen-age growth spurts (estimated 5 inches) and as you can tell from the photos…all arms and legs.
The kid may never win a race but he has knocked nearly 3 minutes off his 2 mile times and about a minute off his 5K (just over 3 miles).
That may not sound like a lot but in running that is HUGE!
Saturday was hot and humid and the Granite City XC meet was huge. The Varsity Boy’s run was combined with the Boy’s Open because of the conditions. Varsity Boys were placed in the front at the starting line and Open runners were behind them–Zachary was running as an Open Runner.
We took a good number of pictures and these were chosen semi-randomly (if there is such a thing LOL)
