Watching a marathon in Richmond

This weekend, I watched my girlfriend's father run—and finish—his first marathon. Well, I saw him a few times at different points on the course. During most of the race, I took pictures. Here are the ones I like.

These were the first runners to reach the 17 mile mark. They were...intense, to say the least.

Looking for a very particular runner.

Not fooled by my attempt to take a candid.
