Select photos of my shots of the mayor before, during and after the race are below. More to come.

Nearing the finish, the Mayor's daughter joined him for a few final strides. The big guys around him: bodyguards.

I've been capturing photos of the mayor at many past Chicago Triathlons; I've never seen him more exhausted after finishing. He had good reason: the heat was unbearable on the course.
