Photo of the Week: The Joy of Running

Posted by Filed Under: Photos

Someone once said they’d take up running when they saw a runner smiling. Well then lace up those shoes, as not only are they smiling but they are jumping for joy.


The photo was taken during the Tufts 10K for Women in Boston. Thanks go to Brian Sawyer for suggesting we feature this photo. Be sure to check out his Flickr 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.
