An Awesome Track Meet for Josh!

Josh had his first track meet of the season last Saturday and needless to say he did an outstanding job. Kevin and I were so happy to see his improvement and it was so exciting to watch him run.

We were so excited when we found the website that shared the results of the meet, so we wanted to share them with you as well. Can you say proud parents????

The first event of the day was the 100 meter dash. This is a quick and short race with no time to think about what you’re doing. This is a great race for Josh because he’s quick off the line. He placed 12th overall out of 50 racers, so that’s awesome.

The next event for Josh was the 4×400 relay race. Now this is a relay where there are four people on the team. Each runner has 400 meters to run before they hand the baton off to the next person. It tasks a lot of practice to make this work because you have to hand off correctly, you have to receive correctly, and you’re limited on the distance you can travel before the hand off occurs. Josh’s team took 2nd place overall out of six teams.

The third event Josh did was the 200 meter dash. This is another one of those races where you don’t have time to think. It’s a dash from beginning to end, so it’s another good one for Josh. He placed 9th overall out of 42 racers.

The final race of the day was the 4×100 relay race. This one is a lot like the 4×400 relay race except each runner does 100 meters. So it’s a very fast race and certainly doesn’t take long to complete. In this relay race Josh’s team took 4th out of eight teams.

Needless to say Josh had an outstanding track meet last Saturday. Each time he gets better and he’s hoping to go to the Best of the Best in May. That meet is by invitation only and it’s an honor for those that are invited. It’s a great goal to set and one that Kevin and I pray Josh can achieve.
