I love track and tracksters. I’m not sure if it’s because I was one or if it is because I know exactly how much those kids who compete in the sport go through before the day of the meet, but the honest truth is that I love everything about a track meet. So, it was with all of these throughts that headed out to get some pictures of our CHS competitors, ready to see their events.
And then…I began to think, and it occured to me that there is less glory in competing in track than in any other sport in the country. Think about it…you spend your entire day waiting for your event, and then in just a few minutes…or often just a few seconds…it’s all over. At least a football game or a basketball game or a baseball game or a golf tourney, etc. lasts for a while. And yet, the 100 yd. dash is over in seconds!
