Weekend Racing - NOT

Sure, I would have loved to do some racing this past weekend. Surprisingly, I did the right thing and opted not to race, choosing to head out with the camera instead.
Little did I know I'd become part of history at the Rivah (aka the Merrimack River 10m Trail Race). Turns out this out/back race had more photographers per mile than any race in history. No less than 6 different folks took at least 2,388 photos. I had no idea, as I drove directly to an access road approximately 2 miles in. So if you raced and can't find a good picture of yourself, you have other problems :-)

Someone spots me in the bushes!
Finally, free from photographers...ah crap, another one!

The rest of my photos can be found here. Most were taken around mile 2.5 or 8.5.

I jumped on the motorcycle and headed down to Nashua to take some pics at the 1st race in the New Hampshire Grand Prix series - the Nashua Soup Kitchen 10K (results). I didn't spot any other photographers. I'm still fairly new at this photography thing. Unfortunately I had a lot of pics that were blurry so I didn't get everyone. Maybe next time!
