Another item to check off of the Eugene bucket list!
On Friday, May 6, community members, track elite, and kids participated in the Oregon Twilight at Hayward Field and where was I? – right in the middle of the crowd cheering them on. Bringing students from middle school through college from across the United States along with dedicated adult runners, this eclectic track and field meet combined the classic track events with community level races including a kids’ half lap. While it may have taken the last two-year-old some time to cross the finish line (well he never really crossed it because he was trying to not step on the lines!) for the track stars, they raced with furry and passion to come in first.
Here are my photo highlights from the night:
