Great shot and effects. You are lucky you didn't get run over though. #1464182

Terrific perspective, Mary Beth - that rainy pavement and overcast sky make for nice lighting here, I think. Excellent processing for the image, too. #10144120

Terrific capture and processing..I think they will all be happy when they reach the other side of the hill! #10144121

A "lot" of hills? A marathon in Pittsburg must be a real challenge!

Terrific POV with outstanding DD work!! Love It #10144347

Great monthly theme entry.... I've spent way too many hours either training or running marathons.... I just can't get my mind and body to agree to do it anymore. #10145862

WOW! Great capture of expressions as well as storytelling quality. This image is actually 2 in 1... character studies as well as when viewed as a whole, a street scene.
I think this one is headed for the Gold:) #10146623

We have a lot of hills in Pittsburgh, and this was shot as runners crested one of them during a rainy marathon.

Just a bit of trivia -- Carnegie Mellon University is located about a mile to the left, and they passed the University of Pittsburgh campus a mile back.

Category -- Monthly Theme.
