Journal: Girls On The Run Vermont Southern 5K - May 2018

Girls on the Run is a fantastic non-profit that empowers middle school girls through running, and it has programs based all over the world. Girls in the program train throughout the school year in order to be able to complete a 5k, and much of the program is run by volunteer coaches and coordinators. One of my coworkers is pretty heavily involved in the southern Vermont chapter of GOTR, so I volunteered to help with race day in 2017, and planned to do so again in 2018 until my friend asked if I could photograph the race and festivities instead. While shooting an event is a lot more work than standing on the race course and handing out beads or water to runners, I also knew it would probably be more fun, and since I already was planning to volunteer and had the event on my calendar, I enthusiastically said "Yes!"

Here are some of my favorite shots from the event. Most of the shots were taken with my Canon 1D Mark IV, but there is one shot from my 5D Mark II in this selection. I used my Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS form most of the shots, but a few are with the Canon 100mm f/2 and Canon 17-40mm f/4 as well. All images are processed and exported straight from Lightroom with no Photoshop.
