2008 Run For The Hungry

Posted by JSA Nov 29, 2007

On Thanksgiving Day, for the second year in a row, 20+ members of my family participated in San Diego's Run For The Hungry 5K/10K Run/Walk. The course started just outside PetCo Park and looped its way through downtown San Diego and the Gaslamp Quarter. Since I ran the 5K, I had my brother (who was walking with my nephew) shoot pictures with my Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 and carry the GPS unit around the course.

 

Here's a screenshot of a map from Sony's GPS Image Tracker software showing the course area with a couple of race photographs plotted directly on it:

 

 

And here are a few snapshots from the race itself:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see, there were several thousand runners, walkers, trotters, strollers and meanderers filling the streets of San Diego on a stunning Thanksgiving Day morning, showing community and togetherness for a great cause!

A literal snapshot of comings, goings, and doings amidst the flurry of end of the year activities. Travels, actions and thoughts will be detailed, as I road test the Sony GPS-CS1KA Image Tracker around the hemisphere in connection with my digital camera.
