Photo of the Week: It’s raining, it’s pouring, did you run?

Posted by Filed Under: Photos

So it’s a rainy day outside. Do you run or would you use it as an excuse to skip your workout or race? Looks like this runner found an interesting solution to get out there and go for it.


The photo was taken during the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run, 2008 National Cherry Blossom Festival, Washington, DC. Credit goes to afagen for this interesting photo. Besure to check out the other photos in his Cherry Blossoms set.

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.

    Here in Reno, it’s pretty rare to get a nice rainy day to go for a run. I’ve been enjoying the change…

    Gosh, that’s a blast from the past! I used to have an umbrella hat like that when I was a kid. Wish I’d kept it now, LOL.
