I was asked by some members of a loving new found circle of mine that I have recently become a part of while networking to further establish myself upon graduation this spring to photograph their 5K event. Considering this was my first one, I was slightly nervous and excited at the same time.
There were nothing but smiling faces as the drones of people swarmed in to the event to participate in the 5K run to help support San Diego County’s Autism Society. Foundation members brought their children. Friends, family and other community supporters came and dressed the part in super hero outfits and bright colored apparel.
Families and friends were taking full advantage of the bounce houses that were used for the obstacle course. These were very few of the many photos that we had taken to show off all the fun. From North County the event moved on to Long Beach, and then on to Arizona.
This young lady was out to break the record for climbing the finish line slide the most consecutive times before quitting. She made it close to 30 rounds before I didn’t see her at the top again. It seemed like there was nothing that was going to wear her out. That big smile was great to see when concluding the afternoon. This 5K is truly a one-of-a-kind.
