Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
They ran a day, yet are not tired ...? (just kidding)Tomás.
Quite a crowd of runners!
Gosh, there are some really sporty people around.I just keep walking:)
Cool! We just had the Berlin marathon last weekend. Always fun to have a big event in town.
Very good action shots!
Interesting to see the variety of running attire.
I agree was just thinking that myself
It is always wonderful to see races through a city. The people are the pulse of the city. Love the title!Janis
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..!
what great action shots! I feel the excitement
I get exhausted just looking at them. I am so getting old!
@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.
'a body in motion tends to stay in motion' so they say. :)
You've caught a lot of action here.
Cool action photos!
Oh there's some pretty determined faces here and in last post William.. well done to all of them for participating!
@Tex: they do say that.@Sharon: it was a day for that sort of thing.@Linda: thank you!@Grace: a lot of determination in each of them.
I like the title. Only skinny people in your neck of town?
Lots of people there, do you know how many people joined the run?
yay for them!!
Lots of energy at this point of the run! ;-)
Fun action shots! Looks like a great run!
@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.
is it just for runners or is it open for walkers too?
The gal with her hair flying backward because of her rapid forward movement illustrates the word motion far more than all the other pictures.
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!)
Assuming they didn't change direction, it looks like you crossed the street... without getting trampled!
Nice to see so many participants.
I like the way you've caught some of the runners with the camera so they look like they're dancing!
Invigorating post! *puff pant* We must be in sync, as I too am sharing a pink runner tomorrow!ALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral =^..^= . <3 . >< } } (°>
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.
@Jen: I imagine if one's pace was more of a walk, you could do so. They stay out there until all the participants have crossed the line.@Mari: true!@Kay: a lot of kids do participate.@Linda: I waited until I could cross.@Randy: there are always a lot.@Cheryl: thanks!@Cloudia: thank you!@Whisk: it's not my emphasis for exercise.
