Saturday the Ask, Listen, Learn team headed up to Boston, Massachusetts for the New Balance Boston Indoor Grand Prix at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center on the campus of Roxbury Community College.
The three-hour long event was comprised of women's and men's heats and pole vaulting challenges with competitors from around the world. It was truly amazing to see the winner of the Men's One Mile Run, Russell Brown, representing USA, finish the run in 3:54.81!
Along with the men's and women's runs, Lindsay Crevoiserat on the New England Team completed the Girl's Junior Mile in 4:52.60 and Miles Schoedler on the Visiting Team ran the Boy's Junior Mile in 4:16.92. All of the runners made it look easy but we know it takes hard work, dedication, and of course saying “YES” to a healthy lifestyle and “NO” to underage drinking to achieve greatness like that!
We were especially excited to watch the Ask, Listen, Learn Youth Relay. Six teams competed in this relay, with Cambridge Jets taking the top spot with a time of 1:48.42. Waltham TC took second place with a time of 1:52.66.
Before the event, we were happy to pass out goody bags full of our materials and help kids play our Xavix game with middle schoolers and parents pouring in to the athletic center. We look forward to seeing even more of you at USA Track and Field events later on this year, but in the meantime, please enjoy our slideshow!
