Heart & Sole 5k Fun Run

During the summer of 2012, Pasco Christian Church will be partnering with Amor Ministries and Go, Inc. to send a youth led mission team into Mexico to build homes and run a Vacation Bible School. In order to raise funds for the trip, Pasco Christian Church sponsored the 1st Annual Heart & Sole 5K Fun Run. All proceeds from the event will be used to fund the Pasco Christian Church 2012 Mexico Mission Team’s trip costs.

The 5k started at Wade Park in Pasco and went east just past the blue bridge before turning around and coming back. Who runs a 5k? Seasoned runners and aspiring athletes; Moms, Dads, kids, and young children. For those not up to a 5K, a 1 Mile run/walk started shortly after the 5k going the other direction along the river. Either way, it was a nice morning along the Columbia River path.

It was good practice for me too. The overcast sky did not provide a good backdrop to the pictures but did provide a nice diffused light. The river and the Blue Bridge provided a pretty nice background for many of the shots. Sure different than shooting the indoor meet last week. I was able to turn the ISO down from 1200 to 100 and still shoot wide open on the aperture. Amazing how allowing the background to blur helps a picture.
