As A Spectator Sport, A Bit of a Challenge

From my vantage point, the race looked like this:


As you can’t see, the racers are-neck in-neck.

And the finish line looked like this:


What a finish!

There were no PA-system announcements about the race’s results but I knew when it was over because I could hear faint cheers from the far end of the slough. About one second later, I did a doubletake.

  1. I know what you mean! First cross-country running with my son; then crew with my daughter . . . lots of standing around in the rain wondering what’s going to happen, and ultimately missing it. But what spirit! What excitement! A challenge for crew and onlookers alike. Thanks for sharing your story. I love how you used the prompt and the page-turning to good effect.
