North Carolina Run/Walk for Autism

The Autism Society of North Carolina is a great group of people with an important mission, so when word spread that they needed volunteers to photograph their 5k event in Raleigh, I was excited. I'm used to being on the other side of the event as the planner, so it was fun to see it come together as a participant and I had a great time capturing the end result. There were tons of teams there in support of loved ones with autism, as well as competitive runners (man! they were fast), and lots-n-lots of volunteers there to make day run smoothly. It went off without a hitch, so I just meandered throughout the crowd watching the fun unfold.

On your mark. Get set. Go!

And they're off!

And the winner is...
 A 5k in 16 min and 32 sec?!! Whoa.

After the race was run and the refreshments were passed around, the fun began.

 Massage after a race? GREAT idea. This guy agrees, I'm sure.

She's small, but mighty.

What a great day. Can't wait for next year!
