The weather could not have been better for the spectators this morning, and I bet the runners liked it, too, as the 34th Annual Stockade-athon 15K road race passed through our eponymous Stockade neighborhood. With only one good eye, a fluish body and a very slow reaction time, I failed to capture as many interesting photos as I had hoped this morning.
As you can see, for example, the eventual men’s winner, Fernando Cabada Jr., was too fast for me, as I tried to quickly raise my Canon PowerShot for my first picture of the day:
Fernando Cabada Jr. of Boulder, Colo., was first and Jordan Davis of Syracuse finished second, while Laurel Burdick of Manlius won the women’s division in the 34th annual Gazette Stockade-athon 15k road race.
