Planned day off so I could watch Thomas race his first cross country meet of the season. This was the Buccaneer XC Jamboree (combined Varsity and JV) for several area schools hosted at Gulf High School.
He did very well with a new cross country PR of 18:13.3, holding onto third place overall throughout the race and was first for his school. Course was three loops (although not the exact same loop) around Gulf HS campus with last 100m on the school's track. One mile and two mile markers were near each other, each one with time clocks. He came in at 5:33 for the first mile, 5:52 for the second mile, and then about 6:00 average for the last 1.1 Weather was kind of hot, course was twisty.
His hard work paid off and I hope this season is full of accomplishment and growth.
