Yes, I Am Ari Klau’s Father

This post has nothing to do with the law, but as I own and publish this blog I get to depart from the normal format once in a while.  Today I just want to brag about my son, Ari Klau, a senior at William Hall High School in West Hartford, CT and, as of this past Saturday, the Division LL state cross-country champion.  As you can see, he was quite happy about his 15:48 victory. (The next runner crossed the finish line at 16:11.)  Go Ari!

UPDATE (10/31/14): Ari took second place in the Connecticut State Opens, surpassed only by Darien’s amazing Alex Ostberg, who is ranked first or second in the entire nation!

UPDATE (11/8/14): Ari was the runner-up (out of 264 runners!) in the 2014 New England Championships, clocking a time of 15:39 on the 3.1 mile course at Wickham Park in Manchester, CT.

UPDATE (11/13/14): Ari signed a National Letter of Intent, committing to run cross country and track for the University of Virginia!

    Congratulations to Ari! I have enjoyed reporting on his successes this year. UVA is a fabulous school and it looks like he has plenty of success ahead of him. Of course he will be leading the way!
