Kansas state track is a monstrous event. Athletes from 6 classifications competing around the clock over two days in myriad events for the glory of being crowned a state champion. Comparing what us photographers do to the preparation that these athletes go through all year to be ready for the apex of their competitive year is a bit of a stretch, at least physically, but mentally trying to make the same 1600 Meter rubber circle look different race after race can be a grueling challenge.
But just like these athletes, not giving our all isn’t part of the game plan. Here are some of my favorites from last weekend’s KSHSAA State Track Meet in Wichita.
