The 106th annual Thanksgiving Day 10K Race was held in Cincinnati yesterday and I was excited to be taking photographs for Cincinnati Refined. Arriving early, I took my requisite posed shots of people, and made my way through the 17,000 runners to the start line. Shooting action shots is exciting and having just purchased a new full-frame Nikon D750 recently, I was anxious to test it out on a race!
Many of the runners/walkers were decked out in festive costumes!
The race was well-organized with signs displaying various running speeds so that the fastest could be in the front. Here they were warming up.
With a minute or two to go, I ventured into the center of the course to capture this photo…
The throng of participants was a bit overwhelming!
They just kept coming…
Approximately 30 minutes later, I was set up at the finish line and captured the 1st and 2nd place finishers…
What fun! After finishing up with the photos at home, I joined part of my family for Thanksgiving that evening.
I have so much to be grateful for…I’m one lucky lady!
