Super 5K

No comments:
 
I have a terrific time whenever I run a race in Lowell. And the Super 5K has a special place in my heart.



I first ran it in 2006, and set a PR.  To make that day even more sweet, I discovered that the race director, Jim Rhoades, had arranged for photographs to be taken of the runners...and when I went to his website I found a photo of me, running.

(But Jim didn't take that photo, above.  I did, by reaching out and back and snapping the photo as I ran.)

That photo in 2006 was a first for me.  I'd never seen myself running.  Never knew that people photographed runners in a race!  It was a surprise, and a thrill.



Today there are no surprises. The weather is ideal: with temperature hovering a 30 degrees, and no wind. The roads are dry and we couldn't ask for better conditions.



I'm running run with a camera, and taking pictures as I run.  (Yes, I take photos as I run. I don't stop or slow down.  After all, I'm in a race!)  If you click on the “Play” button in the center of the photo below, you can view my slideshow, and get a first-person experience of the 2009 Super 5K in Lowell, MA:
