Saturday was the United Airlines Rock íní Roll Marathon, which ran right through our neighborhood, at the 13-mile halfway point.

This was the same runner shown in the picture below, who most people felt looked to be laboring to complete the race. I think they were right, but I admire his persistence. NOTE: I just checked the results, and he finished the race in 5:44:25. Good for him!

I was trying to use continuous focus in the beginning (which I never use), but it didnít work well for me so some of the images like this one arenít very sharp.

Aptly named as it sure captures his persistence. Looks like he runs at my pace. Good note and a nice bit of photojournalism, Helen. BV
