Hill and Holler Dirt Dash for the United Way

The Dirt Dash is the first trail race to come to the Lewisburg area.  Since I am not running right now, I decided to be the race photographer.  I wasn't to upset about not running, since trail running generally isn't my first choice anyway.  Plus, it was cold and rainy.  However, as I stood out there taking photos of happy smiling runners, I felt a longing for the adrenaline rush that comes with running in a race.  I felt a longing for the feeling of running hard, the feeling of competition, and the feeling of accomplishment that comes with completing a race.  I didn't get to actually feel those feelings yesterday, but I am glad that I got to take part in the day and document the event for the people who did participate in the race.

And I must say, many thanks to the three Boy Scouts who took turns holding a giant umbrella over my camera so that it wouldn't get damaged in the rain!  I would have gotten far fewer photos, and they would have been of compromised quality, if I had had to hold the umbrella myself!
