Photo of the Week: 99 Luftballons

Posted by Filed Under: Photos

Okay, I don’t know there could be more or less then 99 balloons in this photo but it still reminds me of that song, 99 Luftballons. It also looks like a fun way to start off any race.

About Dawn - Pink Chick

For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep. Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003. Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon. Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.

    I feel bad for all of the birds who died while choking on broken balloons. And the littering, THE LITTERING. We’re killing our planet, don’t you know, it has a fever. Al Gore took it’s temperature.

    We had to translate that song in German class in college and consequently I know the words in German by heart.
