Happy Mother’s Day to all this applies to (and their supporters)

Track and field, like mother’s work, is an individual activity. But all moms have support teams, and so do we in masters track. So here’s a big hooray for the moms in masters track, and all their backup systems. I’m especially grateful to my wife (mom of Bobby, 23), who joins me at big news events as a primo photographer. Here we are at the Junior Seau Celebration of Life event Friday night at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego — which resulted in the posting of 150 photos to all Patch sites in San Diego County. Chris held her own against shooters from The Associated Press, Getty Images and the best photogs of U-T San Diego. Check out some of her best shots below. Freelancer Richard Alan Eaton took this picture of us uploading photos before the gates even opened at the Q.

    Happy Mother’s Day T&F Moms!
    Thanks Ken and Chris. T&F Masters would be lost without your blog.

    I’m with Ken in wishing all the moms out there a Happy Mothers day. Mom, I’m thinking of you. And a special wish to the mother of my children, my loving wife Jodi.

    Wonderful photos! Always a pleasure to shoot with Chris and you. And Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms in Masters Track and Field who serve as such great role models for their kids…and hubbies too.
