I Love The Beach 5K

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of photographing the I Love The Beach 5K on Saint Simons Island, GA with my photog buddy, Kim. We had a BLAST! What began as a crummy day weather-wise, turned into a beautiful afternoon with blue skies. Well over 200 runners showed up for the event and braved the cold wind that blew in off the water. I had an incredible time photographing runners near the turnaround point. What I really loved was motivating the runners as I was taking their pictures. They often rewarded me with a big smile or a thumbs up.

Get your running shoes ready...and winter coat!

The first runner makes his way past the beach homes to the turnaround!

I was greeted with many happy faces despite the cold.

Motivating runners as they passed me was a BLAST!

I hope I can run a 5K when I'm in my eighties, just like Bob!

The top three runners in each category were awarded with shell trophies.

Kim and I had so much fun, we will be photographing the Bridge Run this coming Saturday on the Lanier Bridge, where over 1200 participants are expected! We hope to see you there!
