Ayden beats his teammates by 20 seconds...
 
This is Ayden's first year in cross-country and he is racing with a mix of 9 and 10-year-old's.  At age 9, Ayden is at a huge disadvantage in the Bantam division but he is making strides.  He beat his two teammates by 20 seconds.  What's most cool is that only one other runner out of nearly 100 separated the three runners.
 
Every time these guys race, the order of finish is different.  Overall, they are very evenly matched.  I just wish Ayden would take it more seriously, like diving, because I feel he has a lot in his tank at the finish...
