USATF Region 8

Gavin and two other kids from our youth track team competed in Oshkosh, WI this weekend. Pictures and a full recap to follow, but wanted to let everyone know that we are so proud of Gavin!

He ran a PR of 5:58.64 in the 1500m race, breaking the 6 min mark, and accomplishing his goal. Unfortunately he didn't quite make his goal of coming in under 3 min on the 800, but he was very close. 3:02.02. He was a great kid the whole trip (a couple grumpy moments right after running and when he got hungry).

This weekend he is going to Twilight Camp at Camp Dodge with the boy scouts in the evenings, so he is taking it a little easy on the running, but will be back in competition this weekend in Ames at the Iowa Games.
