Photo of the Week: Running Suits You

Posted by Filed Under: Photos

As 2007 draws to an end, it is time reflect on this year’s successes and look forward to what we can accomplish in 2008. Forget about resolutions, we usually don’t keep them. Instead set goals—be it a new race, pounds to lose, or a new PR. Pick something that is perhaps just a little out of reach but with some effort just maybe it will happen in 2008 or at least you will be one step closer.

With that in mind, remember “Running suits you” and it literally does the runner in this photo.

The photo was taken during the 2007 Dublin Marathon and the credit for goes to Infomatique. Be sure to check out his other photos in his Dublin Marathon set.

As always, we’d love to feature your photos so please leave a comment with the details.

We here at CRN hope you had a great year and wish you all the best in 2008.


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 wore an Elvis suit at the St Jude’s 1/2 in Memphis last month.

    One of these days I need to be “that guy” and wear something silly to a race.

    Sillier than a runner’s normal uniform, I mean…
