Olympic track and field trials

For those of you who don't know, the Olympic track and field trials are here in our hometown yet again. We didn't want to pay $50 per person to go inside, but we did want to check out the free festival, so that's what we did today! James had a blast running the toddler obstacle course, running on the giant Nike track, and meeting the UO duck. We sat in the Safeway cafe and watched the steeplechase women's event on a giant screen next to the stadium. There was also a thing called a Speed Tunnel you could walk through and it made a light representation of how fast the runners were going in real time. James was a bit scared of it because it was dark and loud, but it was pretty neat.

Overall, good times were had by all!

Here is a link to a video of James meeting the UO duck
