It was a nice crisp morning this last saturday. The cold didn't keep the runners away though. They all came out to the first ever Clikapudi Trail Race on Lake Shasta. This is the first of many, organized by Shasta Trail Runs. There is something about "race day" that is just electrifying. Everyone is stoked to be in the outdoors sharing a passion. You can tell everyone really feeds off of this excitement. As a photographer it is really fun to capture all that excitement and share it with others. If you are at all interested in running or even considering it, check out the upcoming races. It's a blast.
