This Photographer is Running the Bix
I’ve finally decided to do it. I’m finally going to run the Bix. The biggest race in Iowa and one of the highlights of Davenports summer.
A 7-mile race is nothing to joke about but as a former cross country runner, I know how long 7 miles is. While I wasn’t the best in my sport, I still remember enough to know that training is important before taking on a race like this. But I don’t care about time, just completion. My bucket list wasn’t specific when I wrote it down so as long as I finish it that’s another check off the list!
As a photographer in Davenport and the Quad Cities, I’ve taken pictures of the race but never joined in. That all changes this year! Now I’ll be the one trying to look photogenic while internally dying from the distance and lack of breath support.
I’ll be posting live photos of my progress every mile!!
Just kidding… Please read the line before the last to understand my reason against that.
Remember, no matter how young or inexperienced, you can attain the goals you set out for with the right focus and willpower.
Catch me at the finish celebrating and recovering with a Bix popsicle and lots of water!
