Burlingame Spirit Run 2018
Those who know me well know that more often than not, I’ll not only photograph a race, but I’ll run it as well. And that was the case with the Burlingame Spirit Run 5K/10K in September 2018. Most of my photos are of the pre-race and post-race events. It was also the same race where I set my current 10K PR, and that course had some minor hills! Clicking on the photo below will take you to the photo album.
Pacifica Runners Tiki Trot 5k & Bella Kid’s Dash 2018
A few months prior, I photographed Pacifica Runner’s St Patrick’s Day race and they asked me to come back to photograph their summer run: the Tiki Trot. Clicking on the photo below will take you to the photo album.
Pacifica Runners St. Patrick's Day 5K & Bella Kid's Dash 2018
I took some photos about two years ago for Pacifica Runners and their Halloween 5K, and they asked if I was available this year. I could have run a half marathon that day, but also couldn't turn down helping out a small community running organization. Clicking on the below photo will take you the photo album.
Bethlehem AD 2017
Wow! What an honor and a blessing to be asked to help photograph Bethlehem AD this year! Clicking on the photo will take you to the Flickr album with highlights of the event. And be sure to mark you calendars for December 21, 22, and 23 in 2018 so you can come by and experience this wonderful event! Also, check out my blog for a discussion on how I shot this event.
This was my fourth year to photograph the Myasthenia Gravis Walk in San Francisco. It didn't rain this year, thankfully. And it was good to be back volunteering again -- after having had to take a break from photography -- for a very worthy cause. Click on this link or on the photo to view the Flickr Album!
MGWalk SF Bay Area 2016
For the third year in a row, I went back to photograph the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America's MGWalk. Unlike the past two years, this year was rainy and stormy, but still fun.
Starry Night 2016
This particular event has special meaning for me because it was the first charity event I had ever photographed. That was in 2014 when I had my Canon 70D. I was honored to be invited back to photograph the event again. Starry Night is organized by the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. The event is meant to raise funds and awareness for the approximately 28,000 children in the United States living with a brain tumor. The event also honors those who are survivors and remembers those who lost their lives in the fight. Clicking on the picture below will take you to the highlights of the event. Yellow lanterns represent those still living with a brain tumor as well as those who have overcome it. Blue lanterns represent those who lost their lives. White lanterns represent the other children in other parts of the U.S. who are still fighting the battle today.

Pacifica Runners Halloween 5K & Kid's Dash 2015
I had run too many races in the fall of 2015, so I decided instead to volunteer at this event. They're a nice group with a neat little history behind their founding. https://pacificarunners.wildapricot.org/page-18064

Zero Prostate Run Walk 2015
I just came across this group by accident during a morning run and asked if they needed a volunteer photographer.
Brazen Racing's Dirty Dozen 2015
Brazen Racing is my favorite running organization. They have the best races ever. It was at their races that I discovered and honed my photography skills. For this race, I walked backwards along the course in the morning while the 12hr/6hr endurance runners ran the 3.1 mile loop. Then I ran the 5K.
