Please remember to not really expect good race photos. Rarely will an action shot with one leg hitting the ground at 50 zillion pounds of force, the other up in the air, with arms flailing, look good. It's certainly not an ego booster. Unless you are some sort of Olympic athlete or something.
Your nurturing soul
