Spending most days getting images ready for print, I was given a chance to go out and photograph for the Rafu Shimpo this past Sunday at the 21st Annual Gardena 5000, a 5K run held in Gardena, CA. The day started with the open 5K run in which hundreds participated. Next came the invitational 5K run, which featured 17 elite runners. The day ended with short kids runs and the passing out of awards. Here is one of the images that did run.
Here are a few of the images that did not make it into the paper.
