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.

    We had exactly the same thing happen yesterday! I  went in a 5k run with my 7 year old son and 9 year old daughter, and ended up running 5.7km in around 43 minutes. What a great picture!

    Great photo! Our local Girls on the Run 5K race took place yesterday. It had a Hawaiian theme, and I took lots of photos of girls running with leis around their necks and grass skirts over their running shorts. Now I just need to get the laptop fixed so I can see them!
