The view from the infield

The view from the infield


Now that the bugs are out of the system and the day's big races are done, I can finally focus on blogging. These photos are from the time I spent on the infield this afternoon.

I'm especially fascinated by the pole vault because I have no idea how people actually do it. Granted, I'm not much of an athlete at all, but watching human beings get themselves that high off the ground always draws my attention.

Those of you who've been in The Paddock know that I've posted a lot of extra information on Twitter today. The Paddock is the best place to get those updates in real time. I also encourage you to post comments there if there's a school you root for, a race result you want to know about or a Penn Relays memory you want to share.
