I am shooting Max weekly. Whatever is happening. Nothing is planned. I have no idea where this journey will take us...no one knows.
On May 10th, Max participated in San Diego's Celebration for Champions. I knew this was an important day to capture. And luckily, I had a client reschedule and happened to be available. Max was number 27 and sponsored by Rady Childrne's Hospital.
You have to imagine...
I arrived to the tune of the 'chariots of fire' theme song. I immediately began to cry but knew I had to pull myself together and put on my face of strength. And I did. But then another lady started talking to me, asking me who I was and what I was doing, and I couldn't help but cry as I described Max and his family and what I was doing with them.
I asked Max not to run too fast as how would I photograph him if he did. He told me, I'm running fast. And he did! So strong. So proud. So fast.
At the completion of the race...Max and his team.
