QC Marathon

20140928-QCMarathonIt was a beautiful day for the annual Quad City Marathon. I always enjoy shooting this event as it is such an accomplishment for everyone that finishes. Thanks go out to Ken Arevalo for including me on the photographer team. I shot some pictures of the start, went to downtown rock island to shoot a few with the Centennial Bridge in the background, then back to the finish line for the leaders and the rest. Here are a couple hundred of my “picks” of the day.

Color The Quads 5k

edgeIt was a beautiful day for a very successful Color the Quads 5k race! A big thank you goes out to Mel Foster and race director Sarah Johnson for bringing this great event to our area. As you can see from my photos, this is all out fun for the participants.

Color The Quads - Kids Races

edgeIt was a great morning for the kids races at the Bandshell in Bettendorf for Color The Quads. As you can easily see from my photos, they had a great time! What a great event!

Color The Quads Volunteer Training

edgeThe Volunteers came by to signing, pick up their shirts, and get a little training. We did get rewarded with dinner at Azteca and a couple “Adult Beverages”! I captured a few photos ....

Quad Cities Marathon

edgeI had the opportunity to shoot the Quad City Marathon again this year. It was a blast! The theme that I’d say was predominant this year was “EMOTIONAL”! I spent a lot of time at the finish line shooting finishers. The Relay Teams were excited and full of energy. The marathoners were different. A number came in completely spent and exhausted. Some had some left and had a kick to the end. The thing that got to me the most was the emotion of the first time marathoners when they came across the finish line. After all, they’ve been training for this moment for most of a year and a number of them just broke down. It was really touching and I really felt proud for every one of them. It’s so great to be close to the action. I tried to capture a little of it in photos.

Glow Run

edgeSeems like we’re coming up with all kinds of excuses to party. Here’s another one. The “Glow Run” in downtown Moline. The race started fairly informally with three waves of runners. Wave 1 - “Runners”. Wave 2 - “Walkers”, and Wave 3 - “Partiers”. I was surprised that anyone started in wave 1 or 2 since they all seemed to be “Partiers”. Check out a few photos of the evening.
