the final leg of the last relay of the last year of middle school….



It was a typical COLD May morning in the NW ‘burbs of Chicago – complete with wind and rain.  As always, the 8th grade boys ran their relays last – and this was the sectional tournament, thus many schools, many teams and many hours spent in the rain, in the wind – in the friggin’ cold.  The young man above is my son and he was coming in hard… I was not certain if I could catch a photo of the wind but I did!!  I wish I had a different camera, other than my i-phone (this photo was shot in 2012), however, it doesn’t really matter.  Peyton loves this picture.  His words were:

“Wow! I am airborne!  Cool shot Mimz!”

      Thank you. Yes, it was. And watching my son was worth every cold, wet minute:)

      Me neither. Peyton participated in a fishing tournament yesterday. The weather was the same. 🙂

    It’s a chilly rainy April morning in the SW ‘burbs of Chicago today. 🙂 Wind is great…if it’s at your back. Otherwise, it makes running/biking much more difficult.

      True. I did my entire Ironman in 2006 in the exact kind of weather. Yuck. 🙂

        An Ironman? Impressive! As a sprinter, that just amazes me, although I can walk quickly for a long time.

        Yes. Ironman WI in 2006. The weather was horrific. All day. It was one hell of a long race but I finished. 🙂

    Great picture, Kimberly, and it’s always a reward when you get kudos from a middle school boy! 🙂

      Thank you so much!! And you are right – those pesky middle school boys…..;)
