Photographer's Note

At the end of a September we were on a picnic by the Mosel river when they suddenly closed the roads and made ready for a marathon to come by. The first twenty or thirty runners were Africans not visibly strained after the first 30 kilometers. Such as these two. Some of them were even laughing and chatting as they ran. Ten minutes later the European runners came by. Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of their pained sweating faces and obvious exhaustion. Someone told me there is an international circuit of professional marathon runners where these guys from Kenya are usually found up front - a bit like the world of golfers where the best can be found at every tournament. It occured to me that it must be an interesting way to see the world - running across all continents like Forrest Gump ran across the US.
