With so many techie gadgets for running, I’m sure this is a common scene at many races. So as you head out are you one of those runners hitting the start on your watch, Garmin or other gadget?
I captured this photo during Sunday’s Calgary Police Half Marathon. I was there to run the 5k but snapped several photos before getting ready to head out in my own race. You can find this and many other photos from the race over at my Flickr site.

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.
