I love that my 70-300 mm lens on Boom-boom can really pull him in close. Isaac hates seeing me take his picture so I can go way up into the stands and not annoy or distract him but still get a nice shot.
Staying on the other runner's shoulder. That's fancy track-speak for staying behind the guy intentionally so you can see what he's doing and decide when to overtake him. Since I actually enjoy this sport I'm trying to learn...unlike what I refer to with a shudder as "the football years." I loathe that sport thoroughly and on multiple levels for various reasons. My ignorance on that sport was carefully cultivated over a lifetime and even Isaac couldn't change it....but I digress. I like track and field...a lot.
Eat my dust, pal.
