For a fun project, I gathered a bunch of images from the past year-plus of ultrarunning. I placed them mostly in groups related to the races, but mixed in a few random images here and there, mostly of various scenery. Races include Tahoe Rim Trail 100 miler; Rio Del Lago 100 Miler, SF One Day; Fear & Loathing 50m (most of the SF city photos); Sunmart 50 miler; Rocky Raccoon 100 miler; American River 50 miler; Ruth Anderson 50 km/50mile/100km; Quad Dipsea; and various marathons, mountain races and training runs.
This first one is my favorite - I was able to use all my selected images, I think they are in pretty good order, I like where the scenes fall within the music and it ends at the perfect time. Rajeev Char was at the Ruth Anderson runs volunteering but afterward was going to a Pink Floyd cover band show. This song is a great cover of a Floyd classic.
This one is nice too, the images work well with the music & lyrics, shows most of the Ultraholics, and a good mix of scenery and people grouped for the most part by event. Plus, I really like the song:
Coming back from American River 50 miler with Rajeev, we listened to a lot of classical music, so in honor of that drive, the second format is set to Beethoven (sorry Raj, the Mozarts were too short), with a fade-out to silent images.
The last selection is shorter, to a punk-ish song:
