An Ras Mor 5K

These are photos I took at the 2009 An Ras Mor 5K in Cambridge, MA:



Early in February I suffered a back injury, which made it impossible for me to walk. For a number of weeks, I could not take more than a few, very slow, very painful steps. Ten days ago I was finally able to walk, so I put on my running shoes and went for a short run. Maybe a third of a mile--but it was a start.

Since then I've built up my distance to 3 miles...but that was on the very forgiving surface of a dirt trail. I'm hoping I can run that far today on the hard asphalt of city streets. But I don't want to re-injure my back, so if this doesn't feel right I'll just step over to the curb and take a bus back to the start line.

I'm carrying a small camera as I run, and I take lots of pictures during the race.




(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 An Ras Mor 5K in Cambridge, MA:
