The Last Charge Of The Light Brigade


Kipling and Tennyson might want to have a word with me for that title.

Here we have some more of the crowd of runners in motion from Ottawa Race Weekend.

  3. Cool! We just had the Berlin marathon last weekend. Always fun to have a big event in town.

  5. It is always wonderful to see races through a city. The people are the pulse of the city. Love the title!

  6. Great shots. I want to know if there were 600 entrants. Of course, if I did something as extreme as this it would inevitably be called the Charge (or stumble) of the Heavy Brigade..!

  9. @Tomas: hah!

    @Elaine: definitely.

    @Gunn: there's no shortage of them here.

    @Halcyon: it takes a lot of dedication to get ready for these runs.

    @VP: thanks!

    @Revrunner: a lot of people get into these things, so you'll see a variety in what they're wearing.

    @Janis: indeed!

    @Mike: lots more than six hundred!

    @Hilary: thank you!

    @Norma: with this one, the 5K, I could walk that easily- I probably do more than that any given day- but running it is a bit different.

  13. @Tex: they do say that.

    @Sharon: it was a day for that sort of thing.

    @Grace: a lot of determination in each of them.

  14. I like the title. Only skinny people in your neck of town?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Lots of people there, do you know how many people joined the run?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Lots of energy at this point of the run! ;-)

  17. Fun action shots! Looks like a great run!

  18. @Eve: oh, no, but thin people doing this!

    @Marleen: it's somewhere around forty seven to forty eight thousand participants over the weekend.

    @Tanya: it takes dedication!

    @RedPat: you wouldn't see this in the marathon!

    @Meradeth: it's just short enough, at 5 KMs, that they can move quickly.

  19. is it just for runners or is it open for walkers too?

  20. The gal with her hair flying backward because of her rapid forward movement illustrates the word motion far more than all the other pictures.

  21. It's nice to see so many children out and running with this group. (I wish I'd gotten more encouragement to do that when I was their age!)

  22. Assuming they didn't change direction, it looks like you crossed the street... without getting trampled!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nice to see so many participants.

  24. I like the way you've caught some of the runners with the camera so they look like they're dancing!

  25. Invigorating post! *puff pant*
    We must be in sync, as I too am sharing a pink runner tomorrow!

  26. Running with a crowd doesn't look fun to me. I like at home on the treadmill, or down a country road with NO ONE near me.
