  3. Wow Brad, I ran track in HS and your 400m time is noticeably better than mine :D

    I was mainly a 100 and 200m runner, especially the 100. Times were nothing amazing; ~26 sec 200 and a 11.5 sec 100, at best.

    I'm 46. This is my son, in his freshman year at RIT. I'm proud of him:D

    I've been blessed with an all around nice kid. Couldn't be happier.

    Believe it or not I ran track and cross country in high school... in the mid 1970's. IIRC high 10's in the 100, low 20's in the 200, ran relays and cross country was 2.5 miles (high 13 minute range, nothing earth-shaking;))

    My son would smoke me in every event:D

    Nope... sax and some keyboards.

    Dodged that bullet:D

    Most dads worry about their kid borrowing the car. I'd dread having him asking to borrow a Brubaker;)

    Congrats to the both of you! I ran track for three years ending in 10th grade. Mostly the 800 and 400 relays. Then soccer took my undivided attention as far as sports. Gee...track never gave me 4 concussions or a ripped-apart ankle. :rolleyes: :(

    Thank you for clarifying that was your son, cause that really tripped me out. Anyway congrats to your son, and congrats to your other son, that white kid that played really well in that big football game in San Diego yesterday.
     
  11. I almost miss X-Country and Track. I think my best time for the 3-mile x-country course was mid 17s. Which was not that bad considering I was a Freshman in HS. I wonder why I never continued with running? Oh thats right...drugs...:(

    I can run the 1/4 mile in 10.3 seconds :D
     
  17. I stopped doing track in grade 8, probably should have kept at it. I was undefeated by anyone in my age group at the triple jump and 1500m, and ran a 2 minute 800m.

    I guess the 5 sports in high school were enough though.

    You must be a proud father. Good for you. RIT is a tough school.

    Is he an engineer?

    That must be tough, between getting slammed in school and competing. On the other hand, the athletic comraderie probably helps assuage that Rochester mid-winter malaise.

    Go Bradford!

    He's in Computer Science, leaning towards Software Engineering. He's used to juggling academics and athletics, he's even found time to tutor programming. Seems to be fairly settled in up there.
