Brunei Marathon 2006 - A winner and her "wake-up very early" supporters

It was raining very heavily outside so we decided to take the photo in the living room.

Brunei Marathon 2006 - An uphill battle

The start of the 42km full marathon...
My niece at far left. Must have been easy for her. She finished 6th and won herself a medal and B$500. Congrats and well done.
My bro-in-law. It's a piece of cake, no problem.
The shutterbugs...
Looking at some of the end product...something must be interesting?
The Brunei winners
I've just got up after catching up with a few lost sleeping hours. Slept after 12 last night and woke up at 3.25 this morning to be at the starting line before 4.30. I did not take part in the marathon (altho I've registered for the 6km fun run!) but joined Gemilang Association as the official photographer for the event. And to make things worse, it was raining. I've taken photos "during the rain" but this is the first time "in the rain". With my expensive toy, I did not want to take any risk and had to shoot the start of the marathon under an umbrella. Luckily the rain stopped when I was shooting on location in Subok.
