Cooling Off

Yesterday marked the 15th Mercedes Marathon. It's a great event weekend for Birmingham. The marathon and half marathon course takes the runners right past my church, Independent Presbyterian Church most years. This year we are an official race water station, and I like to go down for photos. Some runners like to drink the Powerade or water offerings, but some like a mini shower to cool off. I've known years when it was bitter cold, but today was springlike weather. There were many taking advantage.

Excellent shot!

Our main marathon is in May, but there are other events through the year, including a winter triathlon that opened up Winterlude a few days ago.

Wow, you got the shutter speed right on this one. And those eyes!
