And totally freaked out his mother on the way! This is what she posted on social media.
I have never been so scared in my life. Waiting at the corner for him to come... and he never shows up! I wait a bit longer thinking maybe he had a bad race. Then comes the 30 minute mark and he still did not come around the corner. I am now in mama panic mode! Oh, fricken, no! Did my kid get lost? Did he get stollen? Is he hurt sitting somewhere freaking out?!
My mama heart was scared. We had a ton of people looking for him. We finally found him. This kid forgot to turn at the 5K turn and accidentally ran the 10K.
We were thinking he was dead last. No one was near him. He was running strong when he finally got to the corner where I was cheering for him. He gets to the finish line and we find out he is FIRST!!!! Fricken FIRST in the 10K!!!! This kid just ran a 48:17:39 10K!!! I mean... come on!! He is incredible and I am so proud of him! Now if he scares my mama heart like this again.. I will have to ground him!
