NCAA Track and Field Championships

After attending the Quarter Horse Show and the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, it was finally time to attend the event that we actually came here for - the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

The meet was held at Drake Stadium and we tried our best to cheer on the Florida State Seminoles that were competing.  FSU ended up 4th overall.  It would have been great to see the 'Noles win it all but we still had a great time.

Just try making it over the hurdle after you
 have run almost 2 miles

FSU pole vaulter on his way to failure :(

 No idea who this is
 or this
FSU long jumper - did not fair so well

 110 Meter Hurdles

 FSU Decathalete, finished 4th.  He will be in the Olympics this summer competing
for his home country Chile.

Maurice Mitchell - ran 3rd in the 100 meters and
won the 200 meters for the 2nd year in a row.

After sitting on aluminum bleachers for 4 days my butt is happy to be back in the passenger seat of the motorhome heading west.

I guess you saw that gatorette going over the hurdle in the steeplechase. I thought about doing a photoshop and putting a FSU jersey on her!

Those photos make me tired. I do admire athletes.
