First Competition of 2007

Last night Tom competed for the first time this year. He and his coach talked about it and decided on the 800. Tom was a little nervous because he has never run this distance outside of practice. As the start time grew closer, I was the one getting the nerves. I was so excited/nervous/anxious for Tom, and yet there was not a thing I could do for him. I'm going to be a wreck when Kinley starts doing things. Anyway, Tom did great for his first 800. He ran a little too fast at the beginning, but all in all, he held together pretty well.

These are pictures of lap one and two. Obviously I need to work on my one-hand-holding-Kinley photography skills. I'll try better next time.
Oh for those track fans. He was 27.5 then 56.4 then 1:27.? and finished at 2:02.94 officially.

2:02 ??? Lets see, 2:02, actually 2:03 more or less minus 56 second first lap gives me what for the second lap. Im no mathematician but I think, well lets just say Im no mathematician.
