Harbor Town 5K


The Harbor Town 5K was last night and from the size of the crowd I expect this may have been their biggest turnout. It was a fun run as usual as the course starts on Island Drive and then goes through the shady, tree-lined streets of Harbor Town. Lots of residents were out spraying people with garden hoses as they ran by - a welcome bit of relief in the humidity I can tell you. There was also a group of neighbors handing out what I swear looked like Jello-shots and I should have grabbed one just to find out but was too busy trying to breathe and keep running. Race results will be posted in the next couple of days at the Memphis Runners Track Club website: http://www.memphisrunners.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=site.display&pageId=18&parentPage=18


The race ends at Miss Cordelia's where everyone congregates.


I didn't get the name of the band but they were good.

I have a question... when you take these pictures with people in them... do you have to tell them you are taking the picture ( obviosly the bride-to-be knew you were taking the picture, but what about the other people in other photos?)?

Usually good runners are doing it within 26 minutes ? Is my guess correct ? (which makes it 30seconds on a average for 100 meters ....wohooh...).

Good question and one I have thought about a lot. I generally tell people I have a blog and if they would mind if I posted their picture on it. All of those I have asked have said ok. As far as the other photos (like the people standing around in the street or general scene shots) you can't ask 100 people if it's ok to take their pictures. If people are at a public event in the public eye then you can take pictures of that. It would be different if I was in someone's private home and took a bunch of pictures and posted them without their knowing. At any rate, if someone saw their picture on the blog and didn't want it posted, I would remove it out of courtesy. Are you asking because you have a blog? Or just wondering?

OH~ no I was just wondering... Because you have alot of people in your photos. That makes sense, thanks!

I was just searching for Harbor Town 5k 09 race info and came across your blog. I can 100% confirm that those were jello shots...my husband was one of the folks handing them out to us runners. They'll be out there again this year so definitely stop by :)

Megs,
Great! I will be runing in the race again and I will grab one of your shots. It's always one of the best runs in town.
