Good meet yesterday. My boy's team came in second to Bingham. Kramer won the 800 in 1:55 and finished 2nd to Brewer in the 3200 in a photo finish. I couldn't tell the difference on the tape but they gave it to Brewer. Then he rested for seven minutes and anchored our 4X4 (which got DQed) in 50.5.

Blake and Davis both ran well and Braydon finished 2nd to Kramer in the 800. We went 1,2,4 in the 800.

No run. Foiled by lunchtime meetings and swim meet in Orem until 9 pm.

Managed 3.25 miles on the treadmill at the Orem Aquatic Center before my timing duties began. Is this better than nothing?

Great quadruple for him.

I think Kramer let Brewer win. Seriously.

DQ due to overabundance of awesomeness no doubt. Nice day for Kramer, team, and coach - congrats.
