Paralympics 2012!

Posted by Nukaya , in Track and sports Sep 01 2012 · 186 views

So, my friend and teammate in high school, Zach Abbott, qualified for the 2012 Paralympics in London. This is just way awesome, because it's been a goal of his since he was a kid to qualify for a Paralympics.

Here he is competing at the 2011 ParaPan American Games, where he placed silver in the 800m, and bronze in the 100m, 200m, and 400m:

At London, he is competing in the 100m, 200m, 400m, and 800m in the T53 classification, and the 4x400m relay in the T53/T54 classification. He is ranked 5th in the world going into the 100m, and the 4x400m relay team he is on is ranked 4th. I am way excited to see him compete and hopefully do awesome!
Here he is at the opening ceremonies:

Awesome!

4/4

Zach went four for four in his medals! He just had the craziest kick in the last 50m of the 400m and snagged the bronze!!

I am so excited to eventually see him competing as an Olympian.

My friend Zach raced in the 800m and the 100m wheelchair races (T53 category) and placed second and third respectively, and he just qualified for the finals of the 200 this afternoon, and is ranked third going into the finals!

It is really cool and super exciting, because he's also ranked fourth in the world for the 100, which means that he has a pretty legitimate chance at making it to the London Paralympics next year, something that would be just awesome, because he's has worked his butt off to get from where he was in high school track to where he is now in college.

football, college football
Three of my favourite photos I took during last weekend's football game at my college.

Expect a lot more of this. I was hired at the end of September as the athletic department's main photographer for home games and whatever other assignments they throw at me. Sports are exciting, especially when photographed in a quality and visually compelling way. Go us.

I just discovered that their "fruit flavor" one tastes better when you're eating Sour Patch Kids at the same time, which really helps when you're trying to finish off the last 3/4 of a liter of it.

Also, whew! Really glad people can ford rivers.

Strange Encounters While Running

Posted by Nukaya , in Eclecticness, Track and sports Mar 08 2011 · 70 views

I was running on campus just a few days ago in the pouring rain when some kid jumped out of a bus stop and yelled "WAIIIIIT!"

Normally, I would have just run by, but he had a determined look on his face. I slowed down and he continued, "How would YOU like... a free donut??"

His friend pops out of nowhere holding a box of dunkin donuts like it was a briefcase loaded with cash. I told him sure and he gave his friend the nod. He opens the box and tells me take one, any one. Even though I was nearing the end of a 7 mile run I sprung for a chocolate glazed, vanilla frosted, maple syrup donut with sprinkles. So I run the last mile back to my dorm in the pouring rain with my mp3 player in my left hand and this vile creation of a donut in my right. Must have been quite the site!


I wish things like this happened to me during runs.

Buy Giant Bag Of Trail Mix

Posted by Nukaya , in Track and sports Mar 08 2011 · 54 views

One that would comfortably allow snacking for several people over the course of at least a week.

Eat entire bag in less than two days.

By myself.

I wholeheartedly blame track for this.
