While taking photography for the school’s track team, I felt that it was important to hear the full stories of my friends’ track careers during the 2022-23 track season. Seeing them compete doesn’t show the obstacles they had to overcome in order to place and surpass the competition. Using videos and images that I took during track meets and interviews with Cheikh and Jason, I made this short documentary to show my admiration for their diligence and tenacity throughout this school year.
