long island marathon





sorry I am so late with my post this sunday. I was at the long island marathon early this morning and I wanted to post a picture of today's event. though I didn't run the marathon, I did run the 10K event. it was my first race and I have to say, I am definitely hooked. don't these runners look great? what is your favorite form of exercise?

Good for you!

My favorite form of exercise has always been walking - hiking. these days I can't do much of it and have to settle for a feeble attempt at other forms at home.

Thanks Bobbie!
I really like hiking too. It never feels like I am exercising when I am out hiking in the woods enjoying nature.

Exercise...taking care of 7 horses, riding and walking...I think dancing is a pretty good workout too.

Good for you, Lily!

My favorite is walking and hiking, although there are times when I'm walking along the beach, that I just feel like sprinting.

You and Lois Anne have a lot in common...she's been running for quite awhile...the Disney Marathon and the NYC Marathon.

She doesn't race anymore, but runs every other day. It keeps her healthy and young, she says!

I think that's really cool that you run and have entered an event.

You ran the 10k event? That's impressive! Congrats! My fave form of exercise? Hmmm...walking I like. And cycling is fun, but I don't do it enough. I do walk a lot though! Have a super week :)

oh, how cool. Awesome that you ran!

I didn't realize LI had a marathon. I bet it's wonderfully scenic.

Ski is my favorite sport. I like skiing for the exercise itself and also for the splendid mountain landscapes one can go through.

What a great shot, you really captured how the runners were feeling contrasting what a beautiful day it was. You can see there expressions better when u make the pic bigger too.
