Airport 5km with airplanes zipping by

Wow! I did a really cool 5km run here at the Charlotte international airport.

For about 2kms we had planes taxiing beside us about 100 feet away and lots of planes landing & taking off about 300 feet away. Unfortunately my camera battery got depleted by then.

Race start... they used the portable step thing for the start.

Passing a parked plane... nope, I was not about to get runned over.
