Love these shots of you, Johann! Great shirt choice!

Michael said...

I can't decide if running across that bridge would be really cool or really scary. Still sounds like fun though!

The floating bridge is cool - but I would have most likely fallen in!

Anne said...

That floating bridge is so cool! :)

Laurie said...

Great pics Johann - that floating bridge is cool!

Lauren said...

Wonderful pictures! AND I really want to run that bridge : )

Ewa said...

That bridge does not look stable to me.

Jill said...

Excellent - LOVE the pictures. And that floating bridge would make me panic I think! "Plod" mode...that seems to be my normal pace anymore. At least we're running, right? :)

Amy said...

Great photos! I like the one in "plod" mode - the other runners are so far back, it looks like you're winning!

Julie said...

The floating bridge is awesome!! And so is your happy face!

Char said...

The floating bridge looked like so much fun! Did anyone fall off it?

Abby @ Have Dental Floss, Will Travel said...

Looks like a great day!

Big Daddy Diesel said...

I really like the second one

Kate said...

I think I'd have been INCHING across that floating bridge. I had a hard enough time riding across a steady bridge!

I love the pictures. Even when "plodding", you have a joy in your face.

My personal favourite is "Tired. Me in plod mode." although I would have said:

"Focussed. Perfectly paced for this stage of the race" or

"Like a coiled spring, I eyed the lead group like a panther ready to catch his prey"

Very nice, I may have to copy that term plod mode! I am in it a lot lately.

Cory Reese said...

I definitely know "plod mode". I think that floating bridge may freak me out a little bit. Great job!

Giorgio said...

Nice photos, Johann! I'm always curious of those running paths through beautiful environment. I've never see a running path on a floating bridge.

Glad you can smiling during such tough race.

Love the floating bridge. Were you afraid it would tip?

Thanks for the kind words. I'm swimming and aqua jogging for now.
