Colton ran for St Christophers Cyclones Cross Country team this past fall and competed in both SWOSSA and WOSSA, as did his partner in net, Sean Parker. I was so proud of him for training and competing in all of his events. He tried so hard and showed so much dedication. Through X-country we also got to know his coach Mr. Reid (call me Billy) who ended up coaching the high school hockey team. On the day of the event, the team was excited and felt they had a good chance to place in the top 5 in Ontario. Unfortuneately , a team member fell down and lost consciousness during the race , which obviously affected the team's time. Colton went to the runner after the race had ended, with tears in his eyes, to hug and console him.
These are great pictures, from a great fall day. There were SO many runners from all over Ontario at Canatara Park. The picture we have of Colton finishing the race is from behind, since the first picture we took didnt turn out, in all the excitement of the big finish. I circled around him with mini brads to focus on him , since he is almost disappearing from sight.
