Photo of the Week: The Human Race

Posted by Filed Under: Photos

On Aug 31, 2008 runners around the world united to run the “Nike+ Human Race 10K“. It’s estimated that almost 800,000 runners participated, representing 142 countries. (Watch a video.)

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.

    My first thought was OMG. Then I saw the one guy in gray. You think we was just on a morning run and got caught in the middle of a sea of red. I would have freaked out.

    How can you find your person if you are spectator. “I’m the one in the red shirt.”

    Wish the Human Race was scheduled here in Detroit. I happened to be in Chicago on August 31 and saw runners headed to the starting line. Looked like fun!
