This meant that my day looked a lot like this. Sitting under my tent, waiting for something to do. But there was lemonade and shade. I couldn't complain too much.
Getting the podiums ready for the day. Turns out with multiple races, two genders, and several different age groups there were a lot of metals to give out.
I enjoy having the helper dog feature of this blog. On this particular day Max, Tre's dog, hung out in the tent for a bit while Tre was getting things set up. Still though, no thumbs = not too much help.
And even when there isn't much to do, there is still a lot to watch. In this cast one of the men's kerin qualifiers.
When the wind blows, things get interesting. While it does kill the view the angled tent does endow a certain amount of confidence that the tent will remain. Once the work day picks up, it's best to not spend your time chasing a tent around the infield.
Last shot of the day: the future of track racing. Not yet on track bikes but learning a lot of valuable lessons about rules of the track. Many of the kids stayed later to cheer their parents to victory.
