Dangerous thunderstorms cancelled the swim leg of the triathlon--
so the athletes burst from the start line into a RUN for the first leg of this Tri (now a DUathlon.)
They call me The Running Photographer... the Swimming Photographer... the Cycling Photographer.
I run, swim, and bike in road races, mountain races, and triathlons...and take photos of the other athletes as they swim/bike/run next to me! I don't stop or slow my pace.
These photos from inside the pack have an immediacy you can't capture from the side of the road. You'll feel so close you can almost touch the runners, swimmers, and cyclists!
