smile when you’re hurting

goal race: Buffalo Marathon 5/29

tuesday

The photo’s from the final ¼ mile of Saturday’s race, taken by a friend, Diane, who is western NY’s unofficial running photographer – what a resource for our running community.  I was grimacing rather than smiling, I thought, as this was a painful climb up a steep hill, but came out as a smile.  Friends have told me in the past that I seem to smile during a race, I guess I just can’t hide my joy in running.

Was joy in an 18 mile run today, a nice and relaxed paced tour around Buffalo, by the waterfront, the Sabres’ arena, downtown, around the park and back.  Probably smiling throughout.

    Thank you, it IS madness but can’t resist. BTW, my comment on your ‘When is a square…’ didn’t post – thank you for introducing Malevich. Mondrian, of course, is familiar but Malevich not so much.
