Nike Cropped Sweatshirt

Track + Field Olympic Trials

Olympic Trials

The Olympic Trials for Track and Field.

With school out for the summer, I am in Oregon for the next two months with my parents and the kids, and Ken is going to be back and forth from New York.  New York has the Yankees, Mets, Knicks, Rangers, Islanders, Jets, and Giants.  Eugene, Oregon has the Track and Field Olympic Trials!  Eugene is actually known for its track (nickname: Tracktown, USA). It is the home of Prefontaine and is where Nike was born.

Even if you don’t love track (I do), watching Olympic Trials is pretty cool. Hundreds of athletes from around the U.S. come here after training for years.  What transpires at Hayward Field determines if all of the blood, sweat, tears, and sacrifice are worth it.  Lots of emotion, suspense, drama, and great track and field.  Enjoy the pics!
