Ezra got to compete in a track meet in the middle of May. As new parents at our school, we were assuming (until shortly before the meet) that it was an in-house track meet at our own track! WRONG! This was a real, legitimate track meet with 11 different schools all at the community college! It was very well organized and ran smoother & faster than any track meet I’ve ever been to! (Not that it stayed on schedule, I’m pretty sure that is an impossibility for any track meet) Ezra had fun & even placed 5th in the two events he competed in: 200 meters & 400 meters.
Ready to compete!
On your marks….(they used two pieces of plywood with a hinge instead of a starting gun! It achieved the same result, but with a much softer sound!)
There was a LOT of down time, but thankfully the teachers brought lots of activities for the students, so it kept them busy!
