Hi dancook.
Some nice shots, looks like they spotted you though, hard not to with that big white piece of glass!
it would appear however that your presence distracted them from their natural behaviour! ;D
7D + Grip, 40D + Grip, 20D, EF-S 17-85 Kit lens, EF 70-200 f2.8 L IS II USM, EF 2x III, Sigma 150-500, Sigma 17-70 f2.8-4 C, 50mm f1.8, 550EX, Nissin Di622, Triopo TR-985, Godox FC-16, some Filters Remotes Macro tubes Tripod heads etc!

My wife was running, so I kept myself busy.

So you want us to guess who your wife is :-> ?

Good image quality though, these are the exact shots where expensive lens/camera equipment "pays" as thin dof and reliable tracking doesn't come cheap.

Here's a few more photos from 790 photos album on flickr - which show more close ups. Close ups of runners at f2.. can be hit and miss :)

I think this is probably one of the pro togs, whereas amateurs like me sat on the road :) well I did want a low POV

Darn, my money was on the kitty :-)

Ah - the beauty of digital photography :->

I know this from wildlife, who has the time to actually view the pictures as fast as you take 'em? Thank the maker current dslrs have a certain shutter life expectancy - think of what mirrorless will do to us with 120fps 4k shooting!

Yes that 790 was out of 4000 taken. About 500 I took at the start of the race i dumped straight away, people too bunched up and not nearly as interesting as 12 miles in.. many dumped for missing focus :) easily done.

Tagging them all is a mammoth task, however I am getting some visibility through twitter - people can still find themselves :) and I'm doing some leg work.

One thing I have noticed about many runners -- They seem to smile only when they stop running.   ;D
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light
