“For a good life: Work like a dog. Eat like a horse. Think like a fox. And play like a rabbit.”
I filmed this while watching my younger brother and cousin compete. It features several Alton Middle School track meets and a Kirkwood event. I couldn't really anticipate how everything would come together, and a lot of footage was filmed offhandedly at first. Then I realized that these kids had a lot of character and that there was a great deal more gold that needed to be mined out. I randomly stumbled upon the quote, and it just fit.
And, for the record, these kids were FAST.
