First Place

Some of you may remember me posting about Brendan and JC running in the Heart and Sole race on 4.20.09. We had to leave immediately after the race because Brendan had to be dressed and at the Little League fields for baseball photos that same morning.

Well...the winning times were posted a few days ago on their website, and Brendan came in FIRST PLACE in the male 14 years and under category!!! We could not believe it. This was his third 5k, and he has never placed before. We didn't think there was any chance that he would place this year. JC picked up his medal on Friday, and we presented it to him as soon as he got home from school! I am so proud of Brendan! He wore that medal around ALL weekend! He is proud of it too! :)
