Runners Tell All Link-up: Photo Time!

This post was inspired by the “Runners Tell All” linkup (details below). Check out my About Me page if you like, my other posts in this series, or read on for this month’s topic…

“Runners Tell All” is a monthly linkup for runners of all ages, skill levels, and experience hosted by Sunshine to the Square Inch and The Lady Okie. Each month will feature a different topic, and you can find all the topics listed here.

Share a Running Picture!

One of these days I will get the running photo I dream of for my blog header – me, bounding out of a panoramic puddle as rain pours down, the water droplets clearly defined and glistening, my running figure an out-of-focus blur amidst so much glorious moisture.

I need to talk my mum into taking that picture, and she hates rain. Never going to happen!

Instead, here is a picture taken at my favourite 10k of this year so far, the Loch Katrine 10k! The race was at the end of March and, miraculously, the sun came out to warm everyone taking part in the Loch Katrine Running Festival (marathon, half-marathon and 10k). I gave a cheesy thumbs-up to a photographer I noticed on the way back, and he turned out to be the official photographer! I made it into his sneak-peak photo of the event. Here’s me, dressed in strict accordance with my Polyvore outfit (shared in the earlier link-up on Favourite Running Gear), in Kilometre 9, on my way to setting a new PB:


Thumbs up for the sun!


The sun shone, blue skies stretched behind snow-covered mountains, and frost lingered on the mossy verges of the private lochside road. My runner’s high lasted from Kilometre 1 to Kilometre 10.
