Thanks go to Thomas Hawk for this great photo. He captured this image while visiting Seattle. Thomas was shooting other photos when the sun came up and he saw her running by. He thought was a great way to start the day and ran after her to get the shot. Thomas, thanks for sharing this photo on Flickr and thanks for letting us share it with our readers.
I’m not usually a morning runner but lately I’ve been getting out there pretty early. It’s a great way to get the day started and I seem to run even better. So what’s your favorite time of day to run?
As always, we’d love to feature your photos so please leave a comment with the details.
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.
