Photo of the Week: Winter Running

Posted by Filed Under: Photos

I thought it only fitting to find a winter photo to go along with Ian’s “Cold Weather Running“. I, for one, enjoy running in the winter and have been known to run in temperatures colder then -25C, that’s -13F for those not on the metric system. I don’t remember how cold it was when I ran this race back in Feb 2007, but who could pass up running in such beautiful scenery? Not me, nor many of my running friends.

Photo credit goes to me and you can check out other wintery weather photos in my Cross Country Race Collection over at Flickr.

Got a photo you would like featured? Leave a comment with the details. Or just post a comment telling us about your winter running experiences. Do you bundle up or run in shorts like some of my crazy running friends?

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.

    It feels so refreshing just looking at it. I love ice trees. They glitter. And the chill wind stining your face just makes me want to go faster. I miss it.

    Complete Running has gone waaaaaaaay overboard this time.

    I am not ready for snow. I will never be ready for snow. Just say no to snow.
