Hayden's District Finals!

Wow! We have been busy with our son's track meets the last few weeks. Last Wednesday was Hayden's district finals. We were really lucky because it was at our high school this year! Hayden participated in four events, the 4x100, the 100, the 200 and the 400. Here he is running the last leg in the 4x100. They took third in this race.
Here he is running the 100 and he took first in his heat and about 4th overall. Unfortunately, they guy who was timing him came over and said his stopwatch broke! What a shame! Here he is crossing the finish line.....look how high his leg is! He has a real kick. This was Hayden's first time running this race and everyone was surprised at how fast he ran it. They had to guess on his time based on how far ahead he was of the 2nd place winner.
Exhausted and hot after his sprint, but happy with his performance.
That's my boy! I am so proud of him! He got four ribbons! One first, two thirds and one participation. He was happy! Hayden really enjoys track and we love to watch him. It is kind of sad now that it is all over.

Hayden also did AWESOME! Go Hayden. Congratulations on winning four ribbons. That's something to be proud of.

Thanks, Sharon, for sharing your son's achievements. I felt like I was there right along side of him.

Blessings,
