Thanks go to Basegreen for this photo. See more photos from his Flickr site over here. In an email from him, here’s what he had to say about this photo:
I took the picture at the InterCounties Cross Country Championships, 2008. My partner was running in the event. I think the photo was for the U15 boys race, specifically.
The event was held at Wollaton Park, Nottingham.
Technically, it was taken using a Canon 400D, with Sigma 17-70 lens, then post processing done using Photomatix, to achieve a higher dynamic range, which was then tone mapped down to a JPEG.
You are more than welcome to use the photograph for your site, with credit to “basegreen”, usage limited solely to online publication, with all rights reserved to myself. Sure you understand 🙂
Thanks for your kind comments. I’m just back from London so will add the better ones to the pool, as well. It wasn’t a good day for running photography though, with the rain, hail and crazy crowds 🙂
Got a photo you would like featured, then leave a comment with the details.

For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep.
Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003.
Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon.
Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.
