Boston Marathon 2010 from Natick, Massachusetts

Today was the 3rd time I shot the Boston Marathon from Natick, Massachusetts. I have to say that shooting the marathon experience is pretty awesome. I’m amazed by the energy, drive, and dedication to compete at this level. Running is just one part of the marathon and obviously it’s the major part but, the wheelchair athletes simply astound me. I can only imagine the stories the coincide with their disabilities but, to come and compete any marathon…. Wow!!! Talkin about the will to continue in life. It only makes it crystal clear that the brain controls our body. Yet, some people let their body control their mind. Congratulations to all the marathoners and I look forward to next year.
