vancouver sun run 2009

the vancouver sunrun 2009 was today. i wanted to shoot video of the event. my film pal, tommie d., has a condo balcony with a first class view. i talked my way into the joint, and took this portrait of him as payback.

a bit about the run.... they say there were 55,000 folks participating. it's quite the spectacle. a 10-km race/walk. largest in the world. video to follow.

The Vancouver Sun Run, sponsored by The Vancouver Sun newspaper, is a 10-km race held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
