A day at the race

At a recent half marathon in Norwell MA, from our position just before the finish line, we witnessed all sorts of spectators and runners.  I don’t know which I found more interesting.  There were funny families…

And serious friends…

Runners came in pairs…

Entire families came out to spur Mom onto the finish line…

And even after running 13 miles, some runners finished with a bright smile and energy to spare!

That would be my goal: to finish a 13 mile run on a frigid November day in New England, with a smile like that.  On further reflection, my goal would be to finish a 13 mile run with a pulse!  Congratulations to all the runners, supporters and volunteers who braved the cold for something they are so passionate about.
