365/141 Last Meet

Today was JD's last track meet.  At 2:15 I got a call from him asking me to come get him from school, he felt sick.  So while the rest of the team runs and jumps he sleeps on the couch.  By 6:30 he was back to normal and being a pain to his sister and annoying the heck out of us!  I'm glad he feels better but I'm sad he missed the meet.  
His last meet was Wednesday, a make-up meet in Houghton Lake.  He ran the mile in 5:39!  That was good enough for 3rd place, these boys are fast!  He has his hopes set on beating the Jr high school record that one of his team mate's father set many years ago of 4:57.  Now that is a lot of time to shave off in 4 laps.  His team mate is one the fastest on the team and he might just want to beat his dad's record as well.  They both have next year to beat it before that torch will passed along to the next class.  
Good luck my son, you will have some practicing to do before any records will be broken.
