Running Together

The Celebrate West Hartford 5K race was held yesterday.
Congratulations to the elite runners who won.  But, the fun is often further back in the pack.


It looks like the younger brother won.  Going to be some smack talked at home tonight!



Proud mothers ran with their sons.


Husbands ran with wives.


Dads pushed strollers.


Even a dad with a three-kid stroller.


And, an 82-year old man ran and finished the race again, as he always does.

The daddy with the three kids is my absolute favourite though I take my hat off to the old gent!

And, I take my hat off to all of them! They seem to be happy as they are competing together.

Wish I had that much energy. I'm better at watching and taking photos. ;)

That's an amazing group of people you've featured today. That youngster in the first photo is really putting the "steam" on. Great shots.

A nice assortment of fine shots, I am already tired only looking at them!

It shows wonderful commitment to your blog that you hung around to take these shots after you won the race.

Intensity and enthusiasm! Terrific captures, Jack!

Oh, dear! That 82 year-old really puts me to shame. I'm happy to walk that far, but run it...? Good for all of them, but especially him!

Randy said...

Looks like it was a good day for it.

Gosh I hope I'm still walking (never mind running) marathons when I'm 82 Jack :)
