This is Joshua. He is the Oregon State Cross Country Champion! He runs the 3K. That is about 2 miles! I can't remember his exact time, but I remember it was just over 6 minutes per mile!
We are so proud of him! Not because he is the champion, but because of the determination it took to achieve that. It isn't easy to go out in the cold weather and workout. But he decided he wanted to be a good runner and he worked hard to get the prize. When most other guys his age are at home playing video games or watching TV in a nice warm house or whatever guys his age do, he gets out and gets it done and then he gets to do those other things too. Good job, Joshua!!!
This is him at the finish...the other runners were not even in sight! He had a strategy and it paid off!
