Crane Beach Sand Stride

The Crane Beach Sand Stride is a 3 mile race on the hard-packed sand of Cranes Beach in Ipswich, MA.

Some of us run barefoot–which is pure joy on this sand–and others wear shoes. But we all have a terrific time!

Come! Run with me now…

(I took this photo, and the others below, while running.)








That was just a few snapshots, to give a you a taste. Now, come experience the entire race!

There are two ways to do this:

1) you can peruse a photo gallery on Facebook (tagging yourself and your friends)…

or…

2) you can immerse yourself in a full-screen HD video!

Runner in the Morning

I’m the runner.
You see me in the morning.

Or you don’t see me.

A long straight downhill–
I’m running right at you.
A foot or two from the edge of the road.

You see me
(of course)
and pull towards the centerline.

Or you don’t see me–
Driving right at me–
Right at me!
As I watch you

I’m right here!
Big and obvious
A blind man could see me

Six foot three and my bright red bandana
is waving like an American flag

But you stay on your track
Like you’re on rails
Straight at me

I watch you
Watch you

And finally wave with one hand:
Move Over. I’ve got a right to this road, too.

Feast of the Blessed Sacrament 5K

The Feast of the Blessed Sacrament 5K in New Bedford, MA is part of a big Portugese-themed festival.

It’s hot and humid this morning but we don’t care. Four hundred of us have gathered–a big bump up from the 200 who ran last year.

Come! Run with me now…
