The Homer Invitational Track and Field Meet ushered in spring sports recently up at the Homer High track. With 14 teams in town from as far away as Glennallen, the track was a busy place bustling with athletes, coaches, race officials and spectators.
A welcome cadre of community volunteers sporting running shoes was among the crowd. They took up positions running timers and stopwatches, raking long jump pits, moving hurdles, waving relay flags.
These volunteers are members of the Kachemak Bay Running Club. I want to say a hearty thanks to all you KBRC folks for showing up and volunteering your time and supporting our high school track and field team. Your good cheer and passion for the sport of running and belief in lifelong healthy lifestyles is great energy to have around. Thank you for all the ways you support Homer youth running programs. Your presence around the track is a gift.
