At the beginning of my career, I photographed the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon from 2002-2006. When we’d begin to plan for the race, I knew I’d soon have my earliest morning of the year, since I usually work nights.
Yesterday, I woke up at 4:30am and went downtown to photograph my first Memorial Marathon in 7 years. It’s still remarkable to see so many people in the streets of Oklahoma City. And it still makes great pictures.
Garett Fisbeck and I worked the start and the course, while Paul Hellstern covered the finish of the run. Below are a few of my favorite pics. You can see more (86 in total, I believe) in this photo gallery.
