Photo of the Week: How brave are you?

Posted by Filed Under: Photos

Are you brave enough to run in your underwear when it was snowing earlier in the day? Well in Calgary on June 6th some 1240 runners and walkers participated in either a 5k walk or 10k run as part of The Underwear Affair. Many wore long johns and tights under their underwear but a few brave souls dropped almost everything. In doing so some $850,000 was raised for research that will ulitmately benefit cancer patients throughout Alberta!
By the way I too was crazy enought to run in this event and you can read about it on my blog. While it had snowed earlier in the day we did have a brief period of sunshine for the duration of the race. The photo is courtesy of me and taken as I ran the 10k. More photos are on my Flickr Site.

Got a photo you would like featured, leave some comment love.

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.
