Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

Nothing says Spring like an outdoor track meet!  The chill in the air as the sun goes down and the lights come on, the cheers of teams on the sidelines as the 4×400 relay wraps up the day’s events.   High school students giving it their all around the track.  Every meet has moments of inspiration that make spectating worthwhile.

  1. Oh how fun to run under the lights. We did that here in South Dakota when my siblings were in track in the 1980s. Now I think the coaches are gutless. They start at 10 a.m. and take the athletes out of a full day of school and end by 6 p.m. Loved that quote you put at the end. We used one of his quotes as the locker decoration for my husband’s team this year. I may have to remember this one for next year. Great post.


    • Thanks Lucinda — you would be able to relate! Most of our weekday meets start at 3:30 or 4:00 – downside is for an out-of-town meet if it is a couple hours away, it is pushing 11:30/midnight when they get home, but I appreciate they only miss maybe 1/2 day of school instead, and there is that special something about watching them run under the lights! Thanks for commenting.
