The Cross Country Xtreme event at the Midway Travel Plaza center definitely lived up to its name. People came out in droves, costume-clad and ready to run. The course involved multiple obstacle courses, including mazes and mud pits. I avoided the mazes and embraced the mud with my rainboots.
It's put on by the same people as the Epic Mud Run I photographed, so I was looking forward to it. I also had seen a lot of photos from this event before, such as Jeff Lautenberger's always spot-on work and Parker Eshelman's surreal photos. I definitely didn't shoot as beautifully as them, but it was still fun.
After that shoot it will be nice to have a week off of work and school for Thanksgiving. I plan to wear nothing but pajamas and indulge in re-reading Harry Potter. Have a safe holiday, all!
