Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: What are some of the best things you’ve seen at a race or a run?
? You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
If you have been running for any length of time, you’re sure to come across some cool/bizarre things while doing a normal run or running in a race. My runs tend to be very boring/uneventful (which I guess is a good thing?), but I have come across some cool things on my runs.
T-Rex – 2017 Chicago Marathon
I was super nervous before starting this race so it was quite a delight to look over to my left and see a guy in a T-Rex costume. To this day, I’m not sure if he finished the marathon, but it sure did provide me with a ton of laughs as we started the race!
Watching the Elite runners at the NYC Marathon
I’ve volunteered at the NYC Marathon twice and both times I’ve been lucky enough to see the Elite runners fly on the course. I always volunteer near Mile 18 and it’s so cool to have a front row seat as the runners go by. The one thing I remember is that they always look super strong and in control, whereas I’m usually a hot mess around mile 18, LOL.
A Family of Deer
I don’t run on the trails so the one time I saw a family of deer on a long run really took me by surprise. I have to assume that they got a little lost on their way “back home”, but I think they may have been more scared of me than I was of them! They remained completely still as I ran by.
Tell me: What are some of the best things you’ve seen at a race or a run?
