Ultra Marathon Winners

The Winner The Winner
The SUM took place today. Short for Sörmlands Ultra Marathon Race. A 50 km race that starts at Björkhagen and finishes at Lake Rudan in Handen. Must be one of the most beautiful places to run a marathon. The athletes run through nature reserves and also the Tyresta national park. The winners this year were familiar faces for me. Daniel Nilsson and Kajsa Berg. Amazing athletes both of them. Kajsa has won two European Championships before. Earlier this year she gave birth to twins! I decided to spend some time at the finishing area and you can see a few more photos from this years race at flickr.

The first shot is my favourite. Man, does that take dedication!

As you know, we are in Chicago. The local marathon takes place on Sunday. Our son has run it twice, proven to himself that he can do it and has no interest in trying again. I think it's a little bit crazy.

Great shots~! I am not a runner but have the greatest respect for them.

Well done, Steffe. I took photographs of races yesterday but mine weren't good enough to post. Time for me to read up on taking photographs of fast-moving people.
