    I ran this race and it was a blast! I was also one of the earlier wave, so after I got washed up, I managed to take some action shots with my E-PL1. Closeups were all done on my Konica Hexanon 50mm f1.7 on aperture priority with EV+.3 to compensate backlight. Wides were done on my Panny 20mm f1.7 in Manual mode.

    Enjoy!!

    Thanks guys! It was a lot of fun, but it was definitely exhausting running through the various mud pits, mud crawls, wall jumps, hill climbs, and other obstacles. A good shower by a guy w/ a big fire hose never felt so good, lo!

    Yes, yes and yes! Actually, as of middle of last week, it was scheduled to rain over the weekend. Thankfully, the weatherperson was as accurate as Shaq's free throws, so we had a full day of sunshine and fit babes =P

    Thanks! I'm actually happy that I was able to lock in the focus rather quickly even though ppl were running by and I'm using a legacy lens, all manual focus =D

    The Konica 50mm f1.7 is REALLY SHARP!!
