Photo of the Week: Winter Wonderland

Posted by Filed Under: Photos

I don’t know about you but I’m about tired of running in snow for this winter. We got a dump of several cm this weekend. It’s been snowing pretty much nonstop since Friday. This morning when I headed out for my run it was -12C which is about 10F for my friends south of the Canadian border. I’ve run in a lot colder but add blowing snow and it made for a nasty winter run. Not much wonder that the turnout for the group run was about a third of the usual gang.

Still I couldn’t resist featuring this photo of another runner in winter wonderland.


Thank go to Kari for letting us feature this photo. Kari recently started running and enjoys capturing other runners on “film”. This photo was taken in the “Garden of the Gods“, a favorite running spot in Colorado Springs.

Be sure to check out the other photos in her Runner’s set or her other Flickr Photos. Kari also has a photo blog.

Got a photo you would like featured, then please leave a comment with the details.

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.

    Okay, today it’s +12C here, but I am still with you. It’s time for warmer weather!

    That’s a great picture – very scenic. The road is in much better shape than what I’m used to, though. Heheh.
