Yesterday, I drove down to Escondido for a track meet for Annika. Here she is running in the 1500m race. She improved another 4 seconds just short of the six minute mark to 6:03.

Vikram played in a water polo tournament last weekend on both Saturday and Sunday. Here are some pics of Vikram.
Here he is behind the other guy being aggressive.
These pictures are a lot harder to capture than track meets, but much more interesting.
This past Sunday we went to Lomita for the Bay Cities meet. Nikhil and Annika both ran the 1500m and 800m races.
Both of them PR’d. Annika lowered her time in the 1500m to a 6:07 (just missing the 6 minute mark).
Nikhil lowered his time in the 1500m to a 5:14.
The 800m races were about three hours later in the hot sun. I think the heat wilted their performance late in the afternoon as neither was able to beat their PR’s.
There’s always next weekend!
Last Sunday were the city finals for Nikhil and Annika. Nikhil ran the 1600m and 400m races. Annika ran the 800m and 400m races.
Both of them qualified for the next round at the county meet coming up in May.
I might add that the picture quality has improved with my new camera. I’m getting better at capturing these high speed images. What do you think?
ps. These were shot at a shutter speed of 640 and aperture of f/6.3. The full res originals are a lot better than the reduced jpegs on WordPress.
Last Friday, Nikhil participated in the Mount Sac middle school races.
Vikram was the official school photographer. When the team was one short in the 4x200m relays, Vikram pitched in and ran a leg of the race!
Last weekend, Vikram had a difficult challenge sponsored by the Navy Seals. It consisted of a 500 yard swim using breast stroke, followed by pushups, situps, pullups and a 1.5 mile run.
That was quite the effort but he completed it with flying colors.
