It's cold and dark at 5am. I know cos last Sunday I was up so I could get down to Lismore's Darrell Chapman Fun Run! There was still a fog hanging over the Wok as I came down the hill! In case you don't know, I'm not a morning person, but needed to photograph almost 700 crazy people who were going to run, walk, ride, push or skip their way through either 4, 10 or 21kms...pick your poison. I'm allergic to running, but I reckon I would be up for doing it on rollerskates...maybe next year. Anyway here are some photos from Sunday's madness. You all have my admiration for your fitness capabilities!

BARBARA CHAPMAN WITH THE STARTING GUN READY TO SEND EVERYONE OFF
21KM HALF MARATHON START...THE TRULY CRAZY! 10KM STARTERS 4KM STARTERS...THOSE KIDS STARTED DARN FAST! THIS RUNNER SMILED ALL THE WAY TO THE FINISH LINE Some people meditate. Some people run to meditate. If I tried to run, even just 4km, I would likely pass out...that's like meditating isn't it!
You're all amazing...thanks for supporting Our Kids.
