Here are photos I took at the 2009 White Mountain Milers (WMM) Half Marathon in North Conway, NH.



Although it is in the White Mountains, the course is remarkably flat...and the foliage was beautiful (despite a deluge of Biblical proportions the day before).

After the race, we all enjoyed Very Fancy Pizza.  (It was so fancy they call it "Flatbread.")

I ran with a camera, and took pictures as I ran. (Yes, I took photos as I ran. I didn't stop or slow down. After all, I was in a race!)

Here are photos I took while running the Allan D. Morrison 5K in Melrose, MA.


This was the first year of the race, but the race director and all the volunteers did a terrific job.  The course was scenic, well-marked and well-supported.

However...I should add that it started FAST and ended hard.  The first two miles were a downhill romp, and I reached the 2-mile mark a full minute ahead of my pace from last week's 5K.  Oboy, I thought.  I'm going to PR today!

No such luck.  The final mile was uphill.  Not very steep, but every step was uphill...and that was enough to take the wind out of my sails.  So I finished almost a minute slower than my time from last week's 5K.  But that's okay.  I ran through a beautiful community, surrounded by happy runners, and I have no complaints.

As you no doubt have come to expect, I ran with a camera, and took pictures as I ran. (Yes, I took photos as I ran. I didn't stop or slow down. After all, I was in a race!)

After the race I had to leave to meet a friend for coffee and conversation...but I understand that the race organizers hosted an excellent post-race gathering with food and drink.

Here are photos I took while running the 2009 Great Island 5K in New Castle, NH.


The course was scenic, well-marked and well-supported, as you can see from the pictures in the slideshow below.

Here are photos I took while running the 2009 Irish American 5-Miler in Woburn, MA.


The race this year is an anniversary for me. It was exactly a year ago, at this race in 2008, that I first tried to take photos while running in a race. I didn't know if any of the photos would come out, but some did...and I decided this approach had promise. Since then I've posted albums of 37 races that give you a "Runners-Eye" view of what it's like to be inside a race. (These include albums of the Mt. Washington Road Race and the USATF-NE Mountain/Trail Circuit--aka the "Mountain Goat" series.)

I hope you enjoy these photos of the Woburn race. The Shamrocks put on a great race and great post-race party. (Thanks, Shamrocks!)
