I left my house around 6:45 this morning to make it to a local triathlon with time to spare. (And boy, was I thankful for that!)
Start time was 8 a.m., and I arrived shortly after 7:30, giving me plenty of time to guide my car through a muddy field (and not get stuck!), wade through said field, snap some preparation photographs, as well as plot what I would do throughout the race. While the light rain made things a little complicated camera-wise and transportation-wise, the cloud cover was a Godsend. I remember sweating at the same event last year because of the sunshine.
I spent a few hours documenting the event, and I ended up turning about 40 images for the paper’s Web site. (Whew!)
The following didn’t make the cut for the Web site, but it is one of my favorite outtakes.
More images to come after I get some rest and cheer on my Tigers to victory…
