Soldier Hollow 09

Alex has begun his sophomore Cross Country season. He has been doing very well. Some runs are better than others, but all in all, he is getting stronger and faster every week. We made the trek through Provo Canyon to a cool place called Soldier Hollow. It is where they had the cross country skiing for the Olympics in 2002. There is a BRUTAL race course there that his team had to run. Many hills and dips up a dirt and rock and grassy trial.
It was hard to even watch! Start of the race. Go!

Big finish. 18:37 for a 3-mile course. He was 32nd place overall.

Al and his buddy, James.

And another friend, Tannon.

All in Skyhawk blue at the finish line. Good Job Alex!
Me, Steffi, Kyle, Mark, Al, and James.
