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...

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!

I really like the second one

Kate Geisen 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.
