    My father & brother were in town to run the local half marathon, but I enjoyed shooting the runners more generally, too. The routes for the half and full over lapped and ended at the same place. The runners just had different coloured bibs.

    This fellow ran the half marathon in around 2:10. which is pretty impressive. What a rock star!

    I have to say: most of these were taken with the 55mm. This was really the first time I had shot moving subjects with AF tracking on the A7rII. It's usually all manual focus, but I decided to give the 55mm a try (I only have one AF lens). I was highly impressed.

    That shot with the mom and kid (great light!), and the last one... the ecstasy and the agony. :laugh:
