Another Northwest Runner cover photo!

Just wanted to let all of you know that my shot of steeplechaser and University of Washington assistant track coach Kelly Strong will grace the cover of the August issue of Northwest Runner!

Kelly is currently in Italy training and getting ready to race in Thessaloniki, Greece on Monday the 30th.

When informed that she made the cover for the second straight year, she wrote, "That is funny. Well, kudos to you for taking the picture. Too bad the race didn't go better!", referring to the AT&T USA Outdoor Championships, where she finished in eighth place in 9:53.99.

Strong finished fifth in R├ęthymno, Crete on July 18th, running 9:49.52 in the steeple.

Monk, what's so funny is that I shot that in the stands (the stands are literally that close to the steeplechase water jump) where Kelly's parents were sitting, all the while munching on nachos between laps!
