Marin Catholic Track vs. Redwood and Terra Linda

Marin County | California

After nearly a week of total obsession with the Boston Marathon tragedy, I was relieved to spend three enjoyable hours photographing the Thursday track meet between Marin Catholic, Terra Linda, and Redwood high schools. Oddly, although both events involved running, I managed to avoid the connection entirely until I came home and started editing the photos. I guess this is what you would call a healthy distraction from so much of the ugliness we see in our daily headlines.

I’m reminded that for me it’s important to stay in touch with what’s happening around the world, but it’s also important to make time to turn the switch and just enjoy happy little moments.

Earlier in the day, I helped lead a meditation group at the Ritter Center, Marin County’s safety net for homeless and low-income people. We listened to a tape of Sharon Salzberg, a leading insight meditation teacher. She reminded us of the importance of avoiding being swept away by mind habits that can distort the full richness of life. I thought of my own habit of focusing on the sadness and despair I see in the disadvantaged people I meet on the streets of San Rafael, one of California’s wealthy cities.

I think it was her message that helped me leave the troubles of the world behind, at least for a few hours, and simply enjoy a bunch of kids having fun running after each other in the California sun.

Redwood Football 0, Terra Linda 6

MARIN COUNTY | California

Redwood keeps trying but mostly falls short. So far this season they’re 1 in 5.  Last Saturday Terra Linda scored only six points, but Redwood was unable to answer.  They missed two opportunities to tie the game in the fourth quarter when one pass fell short in the end zone, and Terra Linda intercepted a second with less than five minutes left in the game. We’ll see how they do this Saturday against Novato.

This April 4th track meet featured Redwood, Terra Linda, and Marin Catholic High Schools here in Marin County. It was windy and cold, but the young athletes managed to do their best under less than ideal conditions.

From what I could tell from the next day’s local newspaper, the Marin Independent Journal, Redwood came out ahead. I’m glad someone else was keeping score. It’s not nice and tidy like baseball.
