Photo of the Day

May 19, 2013

Sorry….a little cross action of my life today…my weekend has been filled with track. My husband and I are the team photographers for Huntington High School’s running program. Friday and Saturday 22 of our athletes qualified to participate at the State Meet. Here you see my son Sam (in green) in his last high school race, the 3rd leg of a 4×400 relay. While the team did not place their collective time was fantastic and Sam did well in both this and his 800 meter race where he set a personal record. Sorry, a little shameless maternal pride showing here. *G*4x400 u

      Oh, much better ones, since we were on the field as “media” we could get close, but I HAD to have one of Sam and with the state Capitol behind it is nice.

    It’s bittersweet, isn’t it – their last chance to be big fish in a small pond, if you can call the high school sports world a small pond :). I’m glad he had a good day for his last meet. A personal best is a nice way to finish out. Hopefully he’ll keep it up in college. And it is a great shot.

      He’s actually wavered a bit: yes he wants to run with the team…no, he wants to do other things in college. His time is improving so well that he is running his 800m actually faster than a couple of guys on the current UVM team. SO….the current thinking today, at this moment, is that he will try out for the indoor and outdoor track season, forgoing cross-country to see if he can get involved in some of the other ideas he has….and settle into classes.

        Ha…we can totally relate to “the current thinking, today, at this moment”….which applies to almost every day with our grad girl….
