My World#105 Going For The Run

I was curious how those weekend runs go. Running is now popular and there's always an organized run every weekend. I haven't tried one yet as I preferred doing tennis or badminton on those days. I readily agreed though when a friend suggested that we take some photographs on the scheduled run especially so that another photographer-friend will run a 10 kilometer for the first time.

It took me quite a determination to wake up this early. The run is scheduled to start at 5am. Happily and groggily, I made it to the assembly place.

The organizers prepped the participants up by warm-ups and stretchings. A little dancing was mixed-in too.

I find it interesting that there were a lot of participants in all ages. They came in groups: families, officemates, classmates and friends.

They came in solos and twos:

Some actually ran and some preferred to walk:

It was good to know that thru running and/or walking, people are improving their health but what I'm really happy about is that most of the shots except for the first two were taken while we were on a moving car. We were sitting at the back of the fast running pick-up (the driver seemed to be in a hurry) and we tried to take photos and prayed that they didn't get blurry too much.

Well, you did a terrific job getting the photos, Marites! Runs like that are very common here in Seattle. My elderly knees are not interested in such exercise, but we do walk! Hope you have a great week!

Would be great to be able to include running in one's exercise program.
