My coworker was a track star back in high school when he attended Beverly Hills High School. He's the (un)official (?) keeper of records, and the link above is to his website. He actually held a record for some distance or event until like two years ago when he convinced one of the kids at BHHS to change his field and run in a different type of distance, suggesting that if the kid changed it, he'd beat my friend's long standing record ... which the kid did.
Anyway, tonight was the city finals that would send contenders to the State finals in Fresno. My grandson loves to run, as many of you know (he's run a few blocks to one mile in the L.A. Marathon since he was two, damn it!), so we all went to the event. Despite the fact that it was kind of hot outside, it quickly got cold and both my grandson and I were sorely under dressed. But, we made it through most of the important races, and BHHS had two kids that are going to the State finals. Neither of us brought cameras, so I shot a few pictures from my cell phone.
