Photo of the Week: Water Hazard

Posted by Filed Under: Photos

Watch your step at water stations. If they are anything like this one they could be a bit hazardous. Those sponges look a little slippery.

The photo was taken at the Paris Marathon, April 2006. Thanks to Hughes Leglise-Bataille for sharing this photo with us. Be sure to check out his other photos at his Flicker Site.

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.

    That’s a pretty cool picture, but I like the one directly before and the one directly after it in the photo set much better.

    The one after it is a single runner’s feet as he makes his way through the sponges, and is wonderfully framed.

    The one before it is a cute picture of a kid and his dad with all of the runners a blur as they run by.
