Early Saturday morning, I raced out of Bozeman towards the Fairy Lake Trailhead for the start of the Bridger Ridge Run. The event is a 20 mile jaunt along the ridge line of the Bridger mountain range. The race started at 7am which mean at 6am, I was tromping up the side of Sacajawea Peak to get a shot of the runners in their mountain top element. It’s a haul of a race and not for the timid. I wanted to show the runners in this unique race terrain. The early hour allowed me to capitalize on the sweet morning light as the sun breached the horizon. Running this crazy race is not something I would try to do but I was stoked to be up there with them all the while documenting their experience. Here are some of my favorite images from the morning.

Last Saturday on assignment for the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, I watched hundreds of my fellow Bozemanites run in the 2014 Bozeman Run to the Pub 10K/Half Marathon Race. The event is popular and runners were decked out in copious amounts of green to keep in step with the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. The best part is the race ends downtown where everyone drinks beer afterwards in the street. Race organizers provided buses to take runners to the starting line which really cut down on the hassles of moving cars. It looked like a lot of fun. Makes me consider running it myself next year. Overall a great way to spend a Saturday. Here are some favorite photographs from the day. Cheers! -M
