+Al Warren has tagged me in the Five Day Quest virus/pyramid scheme. Take one photo of whatever is going on in your life and post it.
I like to run. I prefer to run in the mornings, as I have no set commitments between 4 and 8am, and I don't really need to be awake to run.
I set this up by putting the camera on the ground, setting a 10-second timer and a 2.5 second exposure. About half-way into the exposure, I jumped into shot and held until the shutter closed.
+David Hill, tag - you're it.

- Noise reduction: Luminance +35, detail +100
