    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.)

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

    Nice contrast and colors. We both had similar ideas. Very cool.

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

    storey- oh, yes. tears of joy.

    thanks auto, lorrie & stronghold!

    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.

    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.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Yellow line - gul midtstripe, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.

    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.

    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 ;-)
