Catching Up With Parker

Parker's been having a great outdoor track season so far. It's been a lot of fun to watch and cheer him on. Each meet, he's improved his mile time. A few days ago, he ran a 4:46. Yay!!

I've been at the meets taking pictures, but what with the painting project we've had going on at our house....along with being busy editing photos from the wedding I did recently and another photo session...I haven't posted any of Parker lately. Well, here's an update of photos from three recent meets.

Like the leg art?





Coming in first place at the home meet! Yay!!!



That's one serious before-race face!







Love that happy face! He's pleased with how he did!

Oh my goodness...you are just amazing at taking these action shots! It is like you freeze time. I can't get over that he is down to that time in the mile. I am lucky to get mine in 9 minutes! Boy....he is so amazing.

Great action shots! Your title suggests that we will only be able to catch up with Parker through these pictures, because there is no way I could literally catch up with him, running those sub-5 miles. Way to go!

Meaghan said...

Great shots! I love all the facial expressions you've captured.

I love the "time lapse" nature of these. . . it makes me feel like I'm there! And makes me reminisce about my son's track days. Way to go, Parker!
