    Well it's kind of tradition around here to take the day off, get drunk and watch people kill themselves for 26.2 miles once a year. I brought my camera and did indeed get drunk. Between 12oz curls I was able to grab a few (917) shots. And since pictures of people running are pretty boring, I picked just a few that may be slightly more interesting than a pack of people running. :D

    The head women pack @ ~25.5 miles.

    I liked this one just for the prominent musculature.

    head of mens pack. Unfortunately this woman literally put her hands directly in front of my lens and this was the only shot of the burst that came out.

    Thanks for sharing! Some really nice pictures to look at.

    I like the guy and his green sunglasses and the framing of the stop global warming guy!

    I think I recall seeing some of your pictures from last year from a similar spot. Nice to keep up the tradition!

    Plus don't know if you know but the weekly photo contest is on sports photography this week! Hope you've entered!

    Thanks!

    And thanks for sharing yours! Marathon Monday is always a good time. I see you're in Boston too from your Flickr... maybe I'll see you around snapping. :)

    And just for some more Boston love...
