Saturday in the Park 5k!
Wow, what a beautiful day for a race (sarcasm, it poured a couple of hours before the start which provided a muddy course and humid conditions). Mrs. Progman was fired up and not intimidated in the least by the elements. … Continue reading
Some US Open Pictures
I traveled light and didn’t take a digital camera, although I did have the trusty Blackberry with me, so I snagged the below pictures, starting with Ilie Nastase. He was moving quickly through the crowd when I pounced on him.With … Continue reading
Off to Flushing Meadows
