YuKanRun 1-mile Race

The YouKanRun 1 mile race is a family-friendly road race along the scenic harborfront of Gloucester, MA. It welcomes new runners and first-time racers, who radiate joy as they run with crisp race numbers in this picturesque locale.

(I can’t run right now, but I race-walk the course, and keep up with many of the runners…while the faster ones leap ahead of me, and then come back again, into the eye of my camera, after they reach the turn-around point.)

Come! Run with me now…



(I took this photo, and the others below, while race-walking.)

Lone Gull 10K

The Lone Gull 10K is exactly what you might imagine when you envision a race along the New England Coast. Nearly 700 runners race through the salt air, past an expanse of blue ocean and white spray…and then sit down to a hearty breakfast.

After the race and the breakfast…be sure to hang out to enjoy some late-summer rays and surf at Good harbor Beach!

Come! Run with me now…

Lone Gull 10K

Here are photos I took while running the 2009 Gull 10K in Gloucester, MA.

The course is one of the most scenic of any race I have run…taking us out and back along the ocean, where almost every step gave us great views of incoming breakers and bright blue sky.

After the race we all enjoyed a great breakfast provided by the race organizers (eggs, bacon, sausage, bagels, juice, and coffee!)

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!)
