Woody and family generously hosted the 4th annual Pancake Run this month. It is an event I look forward to every year. A great ~20 mile run with friends, followed by loads of pancakes and some incredible maple bacon. Yes!
After three years of mild conditions, luck ran out this year and we were smack in the middle of a Polar Vortex something or other. It was cold at the start, and got colder as the run went on. My hands turned to ice blocks after messing around with the camera at the halfway point, but some faster running finally returned some much needed circulation. I think for the most part, everyone had a good time. I know I sure did!
Our fearless leader.
Too cold to take any in focus pictures on the run.
Nick had some good icebeard action going.
Such a lovable bunch of nuts.

The Grand Finale. A spectacular November day awaited the 800 runners for this sold out race, just in time before the Polar Vortex set in and plunged Colorado into bitter cold temps.
A trail half marathon is a very challenging, but fun event to shoot. It is long enough to allow me some time to move around the course (although I have to sprint at times), yet short enough that the runners are moving well which adds to the dramatic effect of the images. I thoroughly enjoyed this race and seeing so many friends out crushing the course and having a great time. I used my wide angle lens quite a bit, which meant I was only 2 feet off the trail in a lot of cases. That made for some fun interaction with the runners as they went by.
