In a Hurry

Saw this young lady moving towards me at speed of sound.  As she drew closer, I could hear her talking into the phone at the same speed.  I quickly pulled my camera to my eye and began firing.  I wanted a photo to capture her rapid pace and focus and show the backlighting that set her off from her sorroundings.  Hopefully, this photo does that.
I do wish that I knew what she was saying but I do not speed listen very well.  Too old for that!
Camera settings:  Nikon D3, Nikon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 at 155mm, ISO 360, f/4.8 and 1/180th of a second.
Post Processing:  
Lightroom 3—Set black and white points, adjusted exposure, added clarity and mid-tone contrast.
