The Rigby family hit it big this past weekend when we scored some free tickets to the greatest track meet of the year. Because Hayward Field is getting all gussied up for the Olympic Trials there are a bunch of extra bleachers set up and there were seats for the nameless rabble that usually can't afford stuff like this, and we were the first in line to claim our privilege.
Named for the patron Saint of Eugene, the Prefontaine Classic has a reputation of being where athletes go to break records. We were not let down this year with awesome performances in every event.
It was amazing! I was particularly in awe of the womens high jump and of course, the 5000, which I took a picture of in honor of Pre.
Hayward Field is just so beautiful and the enthusiasm of this community is hard to even describe.
