The nice weather is upon us, fingers crossed, until the fall again. With the time change over last weekend, it seems that the sun is a little brighter and people can't wait for a "proper" spring (and I'm one of them!).
Spring Track and Field will be outdoors soon (if not already for most high schools and colleges), and not that long ago (39 years to be exact), I was out there on the track slugging it out in the 800M or 1600M runs. Today's photo was found as I was cleaning my Long-Arm Sewing room (AKA back bedroom) and couldn't resist to post it. The track was cinders at James Ford Rhodes High School in Cleveland, Ohio; but we took pride running on any track and in most conditions. It was "fun" to change our spikes to longer ones to race on cinders, as opposed to smaller spikes for all-weather tracks (not many in 1980...but schools started updating their stadiums then).
But more than the spikes, check out the socks we are wearing? Those were the days..., yes?
BSoleille! The bright side of Spring; Track and Field and Longer days with brilliant sunshine! And I am on the far right of the photo; my friend, Ann Gentile Kukucka, is on the far left.
