Last Thursday I found myself in an MRI machine getting a scan of my right knee. 25 minutes of staring at the ceiling makes you think about things…a lot.
The Thursday before, I found myself taking a hit from a base runner at a kickball game. It wasn’t a hard hit, but a hit at just the right angle where something in my knee snapped. As I was laying on the ground, I felt that pang of devastation as I was sure my running season was over. Just as I was finally falling back in love with running again, this happens. FML. I was just four games away from retiring.
Out for the season, I now found myself captaining from the the sidelines full time. At least now, I had time to bring my camera and give sports photography a try.
It was a late game, so I was fighting the diminishing sunlight, and with the fast action, there was a lot of motion blur happening. But I think I got some pretty decent shots:
Side note: How awesome are those shirts? They were all individually tie dyed by the team’s T-shirt decorating committee at the beginning of the season. Pitches be Trippin!
I still have the playoffs to go, so more may be on the way. For the time being, the whole set from this game can be found HERE
