It was 29 degrees at race start Saturday mornng for my first try as the "official race photographer" for the "Spa 10K," actually a 5K and 10K run concurrently, followed by a series of children's races. With more than 600 runners, we got a chance to photograph everything from the very serious runner (the winner of the 5K)



to the guy just glad to finish and get back to his coffee pot



There were those who chose to ignore the cold



and a few kids who chose to say "forget the kiddie stuff" and instead ran with the adults



The "real drama" of the day came, though, when the10 year olds blasted off the line in their heat of the children's race



After running in the under 4 dividion, this fellow was pretty happy

Good photos, Paul. I really like the last one. He looks so exhausted :-)

Paul, I am the webmaster of the Spa 10K Races. http://www.spa10k.com
Last year, when the race was over, Dr. Reilly turned over a lot of race photos to sort through and I re-sized them so we could add a link for our site, where I made a slide show. I put up 60 pictures last year, but Doc said we had a professional photographer this year, which I assume, from checking out this post, is you. Am I going to be able to get pictures for the website for our 2008 sideshow?

Please shoot me and email

Thanx

Absolutely. I've sent you a private message through the forum. We just need to get the logistics down. I've already started working on a CD for Brian.
