As you may or may not know/be aware/remember, I have an
article coming out in the May/June issue of MARATHON &
BEYOND, based, uh, on my first attempt at this
*unbelievable* race last summer. And I know the article is
going to be published because I've just received page proofs
of how it's going to appear in the magazine.
(Now's your chance to subscribe!)
Anyway, I would like to give credit where credit's due,
especially regarding all the photographs. And M&B has
already laid out a photo of "yours truly" that I never
took--and neither do I know who did take it! All I know is
that some kind soul connected with the race sent it to me as
a courtesy and I turned around and submitted it (with other
photos I did take) along with my article. Well, son of a
gun, they're gonna use it! And now I'd like to be sure
whoever took the pic gets the credit for it.
I'm sure somebody out there in cyberspace MUST know who this
photographer is, am I right?
Here are the circumstances: The picture was taken AFTER I
had summitted Grant-Swamp Pass and was headed down toward
the Chapman Gulch aid station. There were TWO people (a man
and a woman, I believe) standing well before I reached the
"woods" and well in front of "the coffee can on the fence
post" at which point we runners were supposed to turn (and
go into the woods). I believe it was the man who held the
camera and took my picture. Surely there are others on this
eGroups listserv who also had their pictures taken.
So, please tell me (somebody! quick!): what is the
He deserves a photo credit in the magazine, don't you think?
I only have a very little time in which to change/correct
these page proofs and return them, so please, if you can
help me here, get back to me on-or-offlist just as soon as
Hope to see all of you out there this summer as well. And
THIS TIME I'm gonna make it to the finish line!!!
