Reluctantly Crouched at the Starting Line
I ran past this spot at sunrise a year ago on a training run with Joe, Jaime, and Woody. It was an amazing location, but we were cruising in the dark and I couldn’t gawk too much. I have always wanted to go back when I had some time to set up the camera and capture the brilliant sun breaking the horizon. This time I hit the trailhead well before dawn and packed in the gear. I got the tripod set up and tested the exposure several times before setting the camera to fire at one second intervals. Then all I had to do was wait for the sun and start running!
