or red.

  • Mike 9y

    Great shot and processing. (And don't tell the runner he really has 5.2 more miles to go; he probably needs the encouragement at this point.)
  • hokulea 9y

    almost there! this is a wonderful shot.. something about the angle, orientation and crop suggests it's gonna be a long five miles.
  • Lorrie McClanahan 9y

    great perspective
  • Storeyland 9y

    ah, the joys of exercise.
  • Paul Goodrich 9y

    Nice contrast and colors. We both had similar ideas. Very cool.
  • David 9y

    hokulea- hydration, yes! you don't miss much.

    storey- oh, yes. tears of joy.

    thanks auto, lorrie & stronghold!
  • Anthony Georgeff 9y

    Less than 20% to go
    20% of what's left is only one mile, five times
    A quarter to do what you've already done
    Single digit kilometers
    Less than two 5km runs

    manthatsometimeseatsburgers- exactly! it sounds like you've been there.
  • Anthony Georgeff 9y

    Amzingly enough but yes (more so if you believe that I was completely off the booze for a month beforehand). I did the Melbourne one a year or so ago as a reminder to myself never to agree to do things with friends while drinking.

    The soundtrack is here.
  • Adrian Constant 9y

    excellent - so simple and yet very well structured
  • Silke Gerstenkorn 9y

    Nice one!

  • Peter Blouner 7y

    nice. i'm a runner. using it for my desktop at work. making me anxious to get out on the road. nice color-play. thx.
  • David 7y

    glad to provide some off-season motivation, peter. but make sure you stay away from the yellow line, unless you have race marshals clearing the road for you ;-)

    there is also a photo from my stream, so I wrote to the newspaper, because the commercial use is quite evident...
