An AGH (Allegheny General Hospital) Heart Transplant ran the Pittsburgh Marathon last Sunday. I thought about him today and I went back tonight and found his photograph. I took it just before Mile 20.
Absolutely incredible, isn’t it?
Wishing him all the best!

I missed photographing the early wheelchair participants and the first and fastest runners who’d already run by. Got down the hill a little later this year.
Running to “remember Uncle Buddy” was touching.
The Volunteers and the workers who make the day possible.
My favorite shot of the day. This husband is running backwards, coaching his wife on to the finish. Just before Mile Marker 20. LOVE

Today was the Pittsburgh Marathon. Admiration was abundant.
Anyone who sets out to run 26.2 miles deserves admiration. Here are a few highlights.
Laura and Charles were visiting from Columbus and Steve accompanied us down the hill to the 20 mile marker spot.
I started to photograph a couple of men is some crazy wedding gowns, which from a distance made me think they were togas.
As I photographed them, it turns out one was my good friend’s son. He recognized me first.
Tony told me they were wearing the costumes, running for a charity fundraiser Project R.U.N., (Reaching Underserved Neighborhoods) getting kids running shoes if they need them, providing nutrition education and transportation to the marathon and free registrations and “promotes healthy and active lifestyles”
I was filled with admiration. Nice job, men!
