In the past I have struggled to cover track appropriately because I did not give it sufficient priority. I get involved in everything else and find the season slipping away.

This year I plan to rectify that by making it a point to get to every track meet that I can.

I was at a soccer game the other day and had a chance to take in a broad view of the small army at Belen that goes out for track. I did not have time to go over and watch pole vaulting and the like - but, coming off cross country and still in awe of their performance  My camera fixed on the Gods of distance - there are a few shots of them - just click on the link to the right.

My very first track meet at Belen and it was a great experience for me. I think I’m beginning to get the flow of track. Rather than approaching it as a challenge to get everything I went with the idea that I can’t get everything on any day - at any meet and just had a good time following the guys and letting them give me advice. I was very pumped by the end and stayed up late to photoshop the days shoot and put up a , perhaps, exuberant album with 544 images. Let me know what you think - I’m looking forward to the next meet.

Track is rapidly becoming a favorite sport. I’m not sure yet if it is the sport, the relaxed atmosphere that allows me to walk around and chat - or if it is the fact the some of the nicest young men have gone out for track giving me hordes of guys I want to chat with. I guess it doesn’t matter but I’m surprised that track has jumped so far up in my priorities.

belen track dual meet 3-25-14-91



The dual meet on 3/25 is all done to the right - I missed some of the track as I tried to get some field in. That seems fair, but it is so hard to balance out.


Despite the heat and running through their pain -the middle school future stars of Belen get ready for their end of season track meet at Belen. The images are found at the link to the right.
