Yes, it involved long drives, a great deal of expenditure in expenses for gas, food, even admission and gear, it will not replace the joy, experience and pride in seeing the evolution, stride and accomplishments both as individuals and a team as a whole.
I was glas I was a part of it and was able to capture a life time of memories for both them, their team and others to see and shares for years to come in both photographs and video footage.
Below are the last photos that will ever be taken of Christien in a Central High School track uniform but hopefully may not be the last time running. This image where taken at the Gatsas City Meet Championship at Memorial High School where he won several medals. He is only wearing one of many in the shot. There is also an image of his older brother, Brandon, volunteering at the event to help out his former coach and team at the event.
There are many more images from the event on the Central High School fan page on Facebook; a link is below the images. You can also see footage of past event involving the boys with their team mates also on YouTube on Estello's Best Channel as well.
On the behalf my boys and along with myself, I would like to say thanks to the Central Track & Field team member both past and present for all the memories. You will be sorely missed.
