Running on Empty
One of the last things you want to do when you have bronchitis and feel generally awful is run around and photograph cross country — but, I always thought it was better to take an assignment than sit at home and watch daytime TV. The day started out nice and cloudy, like a giant softbox for every photo, but following the girl’s race the sun decided to make an appearance (see the later shots). Despite feeling lousy, I tried to find new angles and work the scenery as much as I could.

Nothing says running like a nice pan…
I think Nike just found their newest, youngest spokeswoman
The interesting part about cross country and running in general is that it is often
a battle against yourself. I wonder what these kids are thinking about on the 3 mile course,
where sometimes you are alone with your thoughts in a beautiful forest.

The Kings boys team points at Griffin McGinley, who pulled a false start and ran
before the race began. I like the kid bottom-left grinning, and upper-right, the kid pointing.
Nothing like getting razzed by your team mates. McGinley ended up with one of the race’s fastest times.
Finally, the sun came out, and I was as happy as this kid when it did.

Thanks for looking! Hopefully I will start to feel better as this is set to be a busy week for me.
