Very well captures indeed! Would be interesting to see which scene the other photographer was focusing on! It certainly wasn't the three runners!

I am impressed with their endurance, and with their willingness to brave the chilly weather.

The runners are so graceful and hardly seem to be working given their relaxed expressions. Marathons are a lot of work. Years ago, I ran two of them. I wasn't nearly so graceful though. ;-)
