Run Like the Wind

Parker's been busy with Cross Country meets the past few weeks. I haven't posted any pictures yet, so I thought today would be a good day to do that.

Today the course they ran had lots of hills and it was hot outside, so it was pretty tough. Parker hung in there, though and came in 5th overall.

These shots are from all three meets the team has been in so far.

Ready! Set! Go! Love the intensity on their faces.

Approaching the finish line!

This shot was during warm-ups. I was trying out my panning technique. I was pretty excited with the results of this one!

Go! Go! Go!

One more lap past the garbage dumpster and you're home free! (I like this shot...wish the dumpster wasn't there...too lazy to clone it out!)

By the way, Parker and I will be running this Saturday in a 5K to benefit the Davis County Down Syndrome Foundation. As is usually the case, I will see him at the starting line, then he will quickly speed out of view, and I will see him when I cross the finish line. As I arrive at the finish panting and sweating, he will be standing there not even breathing hard. :)

Go Parker! Cross country is definitely not a sport for wimps (says the wimp who quit after two practices in high school :-D). And great job on the panning. I accidentally captured one at soccer last week but have no idea how I did it.
