sunday marathon








Martín Fiz

Martín Fiz, world champion marathoner, is from Vitoria. Every year he sponsors a marathon here. We arrived just in time to watch the first runner cross the finish line. I don´t know about you, but I get tired just watching...

It's hard for me to imagine marathons in Europe because I've NEVER seen people out running there. When do these every day runners practice? Sure a competitive runner (a real athlete) would have to go out for runs - but who else enters these marathons?

I've never done one - I think that 5 miles is my absolute limit, and I'd probably be lucky to run 2 or 3 these days...

I don't run, but it can be exciting watching people who do. I would collapse after one mile.

Kathy said...

If you ever see me running, just assume I'm being chased!

Lisa said...

What incredible muscle tone in these men. I would love to have the stamina to run a marathon....

Love the cloud picture in the previous post. That's heartbreaking about your Aunt. I would have to shoot my sisters if they ever said anything like that to my girls (they never would though, b/c they too are the type to shoot a whole roll of clouds).

I know a fellow who could give them a run for their money.

Jeannette said...

You are my kind of girl. ;)
I'm not only a lazy housewife I also suck at sport...
Only thinking of it brings out the sweat. :)

Allison said...

Since we have been visitig my folks in the States, I have been a little absent, but I just wanted to pop in and say that I love your last several posts... this one the photos, the last one the self-help comment, and the one before the absurdity of the clothes pins the the dryer... Happy weekend!

Juddie said...

Wonderful pictures Jane! I think I'm more of a spectator too ....

ladybug-zen said...

i'd say that's right on time!

Sammi said...

I get tired from watching people run. Today I have to walk 2 and a half miles to take my dog to the vet (his pre flight check, we fly Wednesday), that is plenty enough exercise for me without the need to run.

MODsquad said...

Awesome photos!! Oh, I'd love to run that marathon some day!
