When you agree to photograph a half marathon in November in Vermont, you never know what to expect. The forecast last night was for overnight lows in the low 30’s, warming to the mid 50’s or 60’s for a daytime high. I expected a cold morning and packed my puffy jacket, winter hat & gloves. The start of the race was cool, but only in the shade.
Once the runners were on their way, I walked down to mile 7 / mile 12 (the course crosses here twice) to get set for the 350 runners to pass. By the time I got to my destination, it was downright warm! No need for a jacket, hat, or gloves. It was a perfect day in Vermont.
The leaders passed close together, but obviously both running their own race. Others passed running with a partner.
I get a kick out of photos that make runners look like they’re hovering in one spot effortlessly.
Even near the end of the race, it seemed like everyone was in a good mood.
Congratulations to everyone! The photos will be posted on SkiPix.com shortly.
