Last year I ran this same race. In fact, it was my first 5k ever. I opted out running the race this year, but the moment I entered the stadium I wished I had. I saw tons of runners stretching and pumping themselves up it put me back into the running spirit. A few friends were running this year and I decided to bring my camera gear along to take advantage of the beautiful light and to stretch my photo muscles a bit. I'm so happy I did because I saw pictures everywhere I looked.
