Today’s photo comes to us from Bill Carlson (coacoash3), a member of CRN’s Flicker Group.
Bill was kind enough to supply us with some details about the race.
The race was the 43rd Carrabba’s Summer Beach Run, the oldest foot race in Florida. It took place in Jacksonville Beach, FL on 9/15 and was a 5 mile out-and-back (or south-and-north) run on the sand. There were about 1800 people running, including the group you see in the picture—roughly 130 Navy chiefs, active and retired, ran in formation for the full 5 miles, shouting cadence all along the way.
As far as the picture itself goes, I started well behind the formation, and had to run a bit too hard to get in front of them and take the picture. I was actually running backwards when I took this shot, and it was taken with my cell phone (Sanyo MM-8300).
We are always looking for interesting photos so if you’ve got a photo you would like featured, please leave a comment with the details. Better yet sign up for CRN’s Flicker Group just like Bill and others have.
