Hidden away in Nashua, NH is a wooded gem called Mine Falls Park:




Trails flow through the woods...



...and along a river...

This is a great little 5K, on a scenic seaside course in Ipswich, MA.



Before the race starts, my barefoot friends attract some attention...



What's that?  Oh.  The race director just said “Go!”



(I've got a camera, and I'm taking these photos as I run.)

Lisa's Lung Cancer Awareness 5K ("Lisa's LCA 5K") in Lowell, MA has a fast course, burgers and beer after the race, and a great raffle--but what I like most about it is the warm welcome you get the moment you arrive.  Everyone involved makes you feel like you're a brother or a cousin!

But of course, we came to run.  So run with me now...


I'm taking these pictures as I run...


(Yes, I'm taking these photos as I run.  I don't stop or slow down.  After all, I'm in a race!) 

At the finish line, of course, I do stop...and take pictures of the other finishers.
Here come Jackie and Dan...


(Her feet never touch the ground!)

Go-o-o-o, Dan!

But the best part of Lisa's LCA 5K is the post-race food & festivities!

The Run for All Ages is a flat, fast 5K road race around Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield, MA. In this blog entry you'll see photos I took of the other runners as we ran around the lake.



The "Run For All Ages" is aptly named, drawing runners whose ages range from the single digits to well north of 60.



I ran with a camera, and took pictures as I ran. (Yes, I took photos as I ran. I didn't stop or slow down. After all, I was in a race!)

Here are photos I took while running the Genesis Battlegreen Run in Lexington, MA.  The course has one significant hill, but the grade was not daunting and the foliage was beautiful (despite a strong windstorm the day before).

The "Battlegreen Run" is two races: a 5K and a 10K.  I ran the 5K with about 250 others...and an equal number ran the 10K.  Both races took us past the "Birthplace of American Liberty"--

the Lexington "Battlegreen"

--where, just after dawn on April 19, 1775, a handful of Americans stood against an overwhelming number of British Regulars (the "Redcoats") in the first armed resistance to the American Crown.  This was The Shot Heard Round the World.  Seven Americans died that morning, and a nation was born.

Our race was far less dramatic.  Just a few hundred runners romping through a cool Fall day, and then enjoying the very fine post-race food provided by the race sponsors.

I ran with a camera, and took pictures as I ran. (Yes, I took photos as I ran. I didn't stop or slow down. After all, I was in a race!) If you click on the “Play” button below, you can view my slideshow, and get a first-person experience of the
