Garrett has not run very much this summer, so he is just figuring out this running thing all over again. Last year, as a freshman, he was actually right on the edge of making the varsity team. He was only a few seconds behind the kid who made the last varsity spot. And he was right up there with them in some of the races. He was definitely a key player in the success the Junior Varsity team enjoyed last year.
Britt and I drove down to Richfield Wednesday to watch Garrett and his teammates race. The girls team took first and the boys team took second. We hope Garrett will be able to enjoy this Cross Country season, even if he is not one of the fastest on the team. Run, Garrett, Run!!!
