Photographer's Note

"The loneliness of the long distance runner....."

Finally a chance to use this fantastic book title, the book is written by Alan Sillitoe, I read it too long ago, so I can't actually tell you anything about it, but I never forgot the title.
It's a beautiful title, and very describing for this Rotterdam Marathon Picture that was held yesterday.

This man was the last one to finish, it took him 5 hours and 34 minutes, and I think he's a hero!

And apparantly more people think so, as he was interviewed by a Dutch TV station, and accompanied by many police motorists. I guess all that attention made him forget his tiredness, reading his smile.....

As a contrast: Bert uploaded the female pro winner here.
