The marathon passes by my house right at the 22 mile mark so decided to try my hand at some action photography. I particularly like how the cyclist's shots came out.

Tatiana Petrova from Russia, #52, won the women's division and was second overall. Her time was 2:25::59. She also participated in the Beijing Olympics.

Wesley Korir from Kenya, #14, won the men's division with a time of 2:08:25. This makes it 11 straight wins in the men's division for Kenya. He takes home $160,000 USD and a new car. Wonder if he'll keep the car and pay to ship it to Kenya or take the cash value? hehe

Thank you. The weather was heavily overcast and temperature was in the mid 60s which made it fantastic for the athletics but not so great for shooting photos. I overexposed each picture by +2/3 to +1 along with some extra contrast and a bit of color saturation to brighten things up in DPP.
