Cold, wet, muddy — perfect day to shoot


Saturday in mid-May evokes springtime images of green grass, flowers blooming, blue skies and warm temperatures. That’s what the 2800+ registered participants in the South Jordan Terrain Race were expecting at 8:00 a.m. when the first wave was to start this 5k obstacle race, clambering up cargo nets, splashing into a mud pit, crawling through barrels and otherwise getting dirty. Instead they got 40 degree temps, wind, rain, clouds and even a bit of hail. Everyone agreed the hail made the race special.

I was there from 7:30 until 3:00, taking pictures of each racer as he or she crossed the finish line. Mostly there were smiles, a few chattering teeth and lots of mud and water. The folks at Angry Monkey did a great job hosting this.
