Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending my associate photographer's wedding followed by shooting a 50 mile race. This was only my 3rd wedding as a guest in about 8 years and 250 as a hired photographer. I must say, it was a bit strange and I think I prefer to be behind the camera. Though, it was nice to enjoy the company of wonderful people and a few Sangrias while watching Julie Mikos work her magic.
After the wedding, my hands and brain were itching to shoot so I headed out to the Javelina Full Moon 12 Hour Night Run. This, for some like my friend Deb Hamberlin, is a warm up race to the Javelina Jundred on October 23. Yes, 50 miles is a warm up to the 100 miler... they're animals. I was able to catch up with her during a quick peanut butter sandwich break before starting the final lap. I'll be shooting at the Jundred as well for part of a new personal project so there will be more of Deb to come.
Big congrats to Beka and Josh, may your long life together be happy and healthy, and to Deb for a first place finish!
