[My son ran a race exactly five months ago. I'm posting about it today. Ha.]
The Saturday after Thanksgiving, my son raced in the Freshman 5K at the Footlocker Cross Country Regionals. You may remember him participating in the same event in 2015. Since this race is a local event, I'm anticipating it will become a part of our Thanksgiving tradition for as long as we reside in Charlotte.
It was bitterly cold and windy that morning, which negatively influences a runner's race pace. Even so, he clocked in at 19:49, shaving almost a minute off his time from the previous year. McAlpine is known for being a tough course.
Impressively, his father raced in the Master's Division, clocking in at a respectable 21:30.
