Boerne-Champion Football and Special Guest

I was shooting Boerne-Champion Chargers pre-season training this morning and was watching a really fast, fit female runner circle the track and thought to myself...what is this gazelle doing here?  Turned out it was Maggie Vessey, 800M qualifier for the IAAF World Track & Field Championships in Korea.

Maggie is posing with Boerne-Champion Head Track Coach Steve Pena. Vessey, a California native, is training in South Texas for the heat. Vessey recently qualified in the 800m for the IAAF World Track and Field Championships in Daegu, South Korea. Her time of 1 minute, 58.86 seconds was the eighth fastest time in the world.

As far as the boys go, it was a cloudy morning and only in the low 90s, so I guess that made it easier.  Look at their faces and decide for yourself...
