Thanks for the comments- very conflicting opinions expressed! And I find that very depressing. My take-away is that what I wanted to do is controversial. I'm a runner and would have been competing if not injured. I've been a high school and college X-C and T+F coach most of my life. I'm 73 years old and still coach a running group called the Senior Moments Track Club here in SC, so you might infer that I appreciate irony. I love running and think this 2 month, once a week, all comers meet on a private university track is a wonderful asset to our community. I think the families and kids, especially, demonstrate the joy of running. Older runners surely do too, and I have been considering attending a Senior Games event, where I usually compete, as a photographer.

I really dislike the photo-journalistic emphasis on the finish line even though I'm national class in a T+F event, and I wanted to show the human interest- joyous, sad, funny- side of a human activity. That's my "seeing" as a photographer. I took over 500 pictures, some which I thought I might share on Flickr and maybe eventually on a running album.  I haven't even looked at most of them yet.  I guess they all get deleted.
