Trevor Craven Results & A Welcome!

Results are up for the Trevor Craven Memorial Track & Field Meet. In the 3000 meters everyone ran together and I finished 7th overall out of 13, 1 of 1 in my age group, with a time of 11:59.56. I was aiming for 12 minutes and smashed that by a whopping .44 of a second!

In our 800 meters race it was just us masters, and I was 3rd of 5 overall, and 2 of 2 in my AG, with a time of 2:51.38. Since those were my initial races in both distances, they're both PBs too!

Here's the team results, showing that some of the participants, and in particular the very oldest ones, did some amazing things in a number of events.

I participated in this meet on July 8, and on July 9 in Winnipeg, my brother Jerry and sister-in-law Larissa announced the arrival of their new son, Evan Adam Flett. This prompted me to take my gold medal from the 3000 meters and get it engraved and displayed to welcome young Evan.

 It says:

To my nephew
Who arrived in Winnipeg MB on July 9, 2012
Love & Welcome from your Uncle Gord

I'll be arriving there on the 12th myself, so I'll be able to give it to him in person. For the record, Evan weighed in at 8 lbs., 1 oz., and is 21 inches long, with a cute round face and blue eyes. Mother and baby are doing well.
