Brazen Racing's Bad Bass Half Marathon is my anniversary race with the organization. I will admit being a basket case a day or two before any half marathons because -- well, it's just me. But upon arriving at Lake Chabot on that early Saturday morning, there was frost on the ground still at 6am -- frost in the summer!?! -- and hardly any people there, save for the Brazen Racing crew setting up.
As I walked toward the start / finish area with my camera, I was treated to an amazing sight.
In the peace and serenity of the mist-covered lake, two fisherman stood patiently. The image above was cropped quite a bit because my lens didn't have the reach, but the sensor of the Fuji X-T2 helped bring me in a little closer.
The above sight helped calm me down so that I could face the heat and the hills and the distance of the upcoming race.
