Half at the Hamptons

The Half at the Hamptons in Hampton Beach, NH is the first half-marathon of the year around here. It features a flat course, 1200 happy runners…and hot soup and cold beer after the race. (Which we all expect, since this is part of the “Will run for Beer” race series. :)

I’m the Running Photographer, so of course I’ve got a camera with me. I’ll be taking pictures as I run. Come! Join me in the thick of the action at the Half at the Hamptons…


We’ve had cabin fever for weeks…


…so we explode from the starting line!

(I took this photo, and the others below, while running.)


Dan and Gail say a warm Hello as they run by.


Barefoot? These guys wouldn’t run any other way!


Pain is a privilege? I’m not so sure. But I’d rather be here than anywhere else.

All right! Let’s get to the good stuff–an HD video that puts you right in the middle of this race. Go ahead! Click the ‘Play’ button below…

Were you at this race–and if so, what did you like best about it? What could be improved?

(If you weren’t there, I hope these photos and HD video gave you a taste of the race…and I hope I’ll see you at a race next week.)

Every Saturday morning in January and February, runners from north of Boston come to Tewksbury, MA for the Fudgecicle 5K.


You’re flyin’, man!
