Just returned from a fun weekend enjoying the heat up in St George, Utah. I lead a team for brightroom in 2011 when it was a full-iron and it was nice to get back, this time covering it for FinisherPix.
These Ironman races are actually a good time even though they are some long days. At the full-iron length races we are up and working for 22 to 26 hours straight. This half-iron was only 14 hours of work but then I had to drive back to Vegas and return to Phoenix via plane so it was still a 19 hour day. But seeing these athletes cross that finish line puts a smile on your face...

Man, I'm always surprised at how many people they can cram into a small area at once. This is one of the TOUGHEST yet shortest races I cover. 4.2 miles is not long to separate 30k people so it's literally a WALL of people coming at you for 2 hours. Tough to get good quality shots but we come back every year so they are obviously selling :)

Wow, I was supposed to be working the Boston Marathon but got stiffed at the last minute. Now I'm a little happy but I certainly hope the best for everyone including the photographers in the photo bridge right where the explosions occurred and right where I would have likely been stationed.

I got contracted to cover this event this weekend. The best of the college athletes converge on Tempe this weekend to see who's the best at Triathalon!
Friday is a quick Sprint Distance with the men and women competing at different times. Saturday will be longer with a Olympic Distance race for the men and women at separate times. They'll follow it up with a Mixed Team Relay.
Another fun event even though it's a little warm to be sitting in the sun taking photos and cooking my brain!

It's up and ready for viewing and ordering.
SW Spine Mountain to Fountain Gallery
Unfortunately, there was some kind of problem on the backend and the site defaulted to it's retail prices which, in my opinion, are ridiculously overpriced for most items. Only a handful of orders were placed before I caught the error and they will be notified of their upcoming refund. The pricing is currently where I think it's a happy medium between Wide Open making a decent profit for our time out there and you athletes not feeling like you've been raked over the coals.
If you have any feedback PLEASE let me hear from you!
I want to hear it so I am better able to provide you athletes with a product you feel is worth the money.

So, the 3rd Annual Southwest Spine Mountain to Fountain went off without a hitch. As smooth as any other event we've worked and the images are being uploaded as I write this. The gallery should become live by Wednesday so check wideopenevents.org
around then for your images!

Well, not exactly my first race, but my first race as the sole provider of photos. I'm usually working for someone else but tomorrow's race, the Southwest Spine Mountain to Fountain 15k, is my first on my own. With any luck it will go just like last year's race as well as any of the hundreds I've covered before except that this time I'll get a little more money in my pocket... :)
