I had the opportunity to photograph my first marathon last weekend. It was so much fun! Not only was there the traditional marathon, but they also held a half marathon, a 20 mile race and a relay race. The day before, they held a kids run and a 5K. The marathon started at 7AM on a Sunday! That just shows my dedication to photographing the event…it also helped that my son ran the relay with members of his cross country team 🙂 My son is the one in the yellow shirt with the cast. Yes, he broke his hand the week before the race, but he didn’t let that stop him! Thank goodness the rain held off and the weather was perfect for running. The races started in Byron, MN and finished in front of the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, MN. Here are some of the photos I captured from that great event. Enjoy!
