EIU Renovation in 1:44

IN LATE MAY, 2012  a video camera began recording events (24/7) that took place at O’Brien Stadium
  26th  Saturday   Final Event for the IHSA Track championships on the O’Brien Stadium
   27th  Sunday     Like several other souvenir hunters, I dug out a piece of the old running track
   28th  Monday    Construction crews began tearing apart the running track and football field 
IN LATE MAY, 2013  the same video camera recorded the final frames of the one year venture...a new track/football field for EIU 

Nate Atkinson, former EIU runner, loyal track follower, friend, web master, EIU CATS (Center for Academic Technology Support) staffer,  helped plan the project.  Jay Grabiec did the actual photography, and CATS friends, Amir and Kyle did the final touches.  Very few 800 meters have broken 1:44.  This time lapse video lets you see what happened during the year, in just 1 minute and 44 seconds (the time it takes a world class 800 meter to complete the race)  ENJOY
