Had the opportunity to photograph the 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials for Team Rogue Elite in Houston today. A wonderful chance to see TRE members Allison Macsas and Scott MacPherson charge through the three loop course. The Race Committee did a fantastic job of making the race accessible to spectators and for having a well informed and courteous volunteer staff.
My friends Jeff and Cheri are trail runners. As such, they put together a trail marathon, half marathon and 5k for family, friends and people of like minds in Warda, Texas today, the aptly named “Race to the Altar Marathon”. Guests were encourage to come dressed up for a white trash wedding. We saw tuxedo t-shirts, top hats, altered-for-running-wedding gowns, and one loin cloth. For this couple, I can’t think of a better way to get in the gettin’ hitched mood, for tomorrow they wed!

Had a chance to meet up with the awesome blossoming Team Rogue Elite downtown this afternoon for some promotional shots. I won’t bore you with the updated headshots because we have some slamming shots with graffiti, hard lights and a t-rex runner.

Headed out yesterday to the 2011 Austin Marathon downtown. I coached 6 runners in Pflugerville for the Rogue Running mothership. They all made it to the starting line for a tough day of wind, heat and humidity. A quick note to say how proud I am of Amy, Jess, Jen, Glenn, Tim and Dave. Each of them persevered during this tough training season to accomplish new goals in their lives. Way to go Pfluger Pfasties!
After shooting the start and the expected fireworks, I met up with Carolyn on the last uphill by 11th street. We made sure to clap and cheer for Rogue’s in particular and to add noise to the course in general. I contributed with the click of my shutter.
Just had a photo published in a RunnersWorld Blog by Lisa Jhung about Ian Sharman breaking the course record at the Rocky Raccoon 100 miler in Huntsville this past weekend.
Here is a screenshot.
To get this image, I had two strobes firing into each to create a zone of light for the runners to enter. I laid on the ground sideways shooting from a super low angle. Tech specs were something like 1/250th, iso100, f5.6. The backlight was gelled blue and the front light gelled orange. WB was shifted to about 4500k.
Anyhow, just a woo hoo! moment for me in that I get to check off a bucket list photography goal. Next to make it into the print magazine, and then Sports Illustrated!
It’s Day One although we technically got to the island the night before. Day it is then. Woke up way early, excited to get some sunrise shots on a day when I could. They need more processing than I have time for right now. But I will throw up some teasers.
Breakfast at Lava Java, errands during the day, phone call with the wifey, and now off to the Bike Clinic.
A couple of images to chew on:

I work for a great running company, Rogue Running, and they like to put on crazy events to break up the summer doldrums. Last week they put on the Rogue Double Dare Challenge. A timed obstacle course ending in a murky inflatable slip n slide.
And your reward for completing these 11 events? Beer, from North by Northwest!
