There was a tie, with 2 photos both receiving 10 votes by people who were not Shannon, myself, or our dog. One of them was me gasping like a fish out of water (thanks Josh). So I cast the deciding vote for the other one. So the winner is:
|Shannon running the Appalachian Trail|
Personally, I thought the photo below was the best. Yes, it is blurry. But I thought that conveyed the action.
It is from the National 10K Trail Championship, taken about 400 meters from the finish line. Two women, racing up a steep trail, battling for 6th place. Come on, how cool is that?
Anyway, next year we will have a real contest, and ask people to submit their own photos. I will have to come up with a better scheme for voting.
