I took Alex to his 15 year physical on Friday. (15 years!?! Wha?) Anyway, I thought it would interesting to post his "stats". Alex is now 5' 9.5" tall and weighs 125 lbs. The doctor said that if he stays on this track, he will be 5' 11" tall when he's done growing. And I was thinking he'd be over 6'... I guess we'll have to wait and see!
Yesterday was the big "McQuaid Invitational" in Rochester. It was cold. It was rainy. It was windy. But I guess Alex runs well in cold, rainy, windy conditions.
Here he is racing towards the finish line. That guy in the front, he's in 3rd place overall. Alex is on the right hand side, trying to stay out of the mud.
Alex finished in 7th place, out of 347 runners in the "Varsity B" race. He got a medal and a t-shirt! He was quite pleased to say the least.
After the race, it's a team tradition to have a pasta dinner at McQuaid. This is the Liverpool "compound". It was SO cold this year, I think it was around 45 degrees by the time the races were over. The rain stayed away, but as you can see, I've already broken out the winter coat and gloves. (That's me in the red coat on the left.) I saw the forecast for next weekend, thankfully it's back in the 60's. I'm not ready for winter yet.
