Here’s another look at some of the photos from this year’s Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. This year Sarah Phipps shot the marathon with our director of photography, Doug Hoke, who had to pinch hit thanks to some travel problems for staffer John Clanton. Here’s some of my favorites from this year. You can see a gallery of even more photos here.
