I love photographing the Dipsea.
I know I say that every year, but every time it gets towards June I can't wait for the annual Sunday race from downtown Mill Valley, over Mt. Tamalpais, to Stinson Beach. I love that there are runners that are in their 80's, and then runners that are 8.
I love that the streets of Mill Valley are lined with spectators of all sizes.
I love that there are racers are always there to help out each other.
I love that everyone takes it so seriously.
I love it that people attack the Dipsea steps...
but feel it soon after.
And I love that the racers bolt from the first flight of Dipsea steps...
Only to find out there are hundreds of more in front of them.
It's the greatest footrace I know of. To see the full coverage of the race, check out the Marin Independent-Journal.
