Crazy marathoners aka pool running before sunrise
Two posts in one day. Highly unusual. This image was taken early – as in 5 a.m early- at a pool on the outskirts of Charlottesville, VA. I am a runner – just an average runner who likes to run 5Ks, the occasional 10K or 10 miler. I’ve even gone crazy a couple of times and run a 1/2 marathon. By some fluke, many of my friends and acquaintances are runner fanatics and marathoners. They train regularly, and they train A LOT. They don’t roll over when the alarm goes off and postpone their run. I do this fairly often. Taking photos of runners is another passion, so when Mike suggested i come photograph an early morning pool running session I agreed. He had me when he said” the light is lovely and the steam looks beautiful rising off the water.” As a bonus, the runners are a great bunch to hang with and supplied coffee and breakfast.
