Do I wish I'd taken this picture? You bet I do. Thanks to a Windsor Terrace comrade, Geri Williamsen Shanks, who reports that the kids run track for Prospect Park Youth Running Club (Coaches Sean Rice and wife Fi with Ann Dolan Vasquez). This was a USATF Meet held at Van Cortland Park in the Bronx, but I call it the heart of Brooklyn, worn on a green sleeve.
We fathom you not—we love you—there is perfection in you also;
You furnish your parts toward eternity;
Great or small, you furnish your parts toward the soul.
-- Walt Whitman, Crossing Brooklyn Ferry
