Over the weekend, the very popular Spartan Race came to Boston, and what better venue to host an obstacle race than Fenway Park?

The ballpark has so many nooks and crannies as is, and there were many games this past season where I felt like I was in an obstacle course just walking around. 

I shot the second of two days of the race, and had some fun with it. If anything, it was nice to wander comfortably while other people struggled through the course.
