I've covered the Long Beach Middle School Cross Country Meet for several years now, but this was the first time I made it out to a high school cross country meet.
I've been walking up and down Signal Hill for about a year now for exercise, but it didn't prepare me for covering this race. The Moore League holds one of their meets on Signal Hill and when I cover a cross country meet I try to get shots from three different locations. I usually get close to the beginning and start, then I'll move to a location mid-way through the race, and finally I get the finish. Well that meant walking up and down the various hills along the trail, which I'm not happy to say, kicked my butt.
Even with this being my first time covering this race, I am very happy with the shots I did get. So please take a look at my favorites and highlights from the meet.
