Friday Flash 55 At The G-Man's
This past Saturday I was sequestered at home because it was the morning of the annual Gate River Run, "The Largest 15K In America" and "The American 15K Championship." It turns out the thing runs right past my dead end street so there was no escape. So, being blocked in and not having any Bloody Mary mix, I decided to stroll down the block with my camera and enjoy the festivities.
I pretty quickly discerned that the event's participants could be divided into five divisions.
1. Elite Athletes
|Way out front and the overall winner of the race.|
2. The Semi-Pros.
|These are marathon regulars in the event as a warm up to the marathon season. This is about two-thirds towards the finish and they were running strong.|
|I tried to do a whole series of fanny's but the sun wouldn't cooperate.|
3. The Party Animals
|Don't ask me, I'm just the photographer.|
|Tarzan was having a good time, but still a long way to go.|
|Now this girl has the right idea.|
4. The Rest Of The Field
|This far back in the field, they're beginning to struggle.|
