Did you know that Akron Park hosts numerous high school cross-country meets every fall? Me neither, until this past Saturday. I arrived at 10am for an engagement session, with plans to go home before my next session, at 3pm in the same place. When I arrived, there were kids everywhere! Cars filled normally empty parking lots. I was drawn to the action. After my first session, instead of going back home, I stayed and watched races. There is something exhilarating about watching the heart of those kids tested. I clapped, shouted, and encouraged as they ran by, muddy and focused. I bought a bowl of chili, a cup of hot chocolate, and some homemade banana muffins from their booth. Now, THAT is a fall Saturday! The final race ended at 2:45, which gave me 15 minutes to warm up and gather my thoughts for Todd and Rachael’s session. This is the result:
What fun!! Thanks for viewing!
