Ready to go!

Ready to go!

I like the intent look of some of these cyclists.

Running ain't always easy or fun

Running ain’t always easy or fun

I’m sure when I run it looks very much like this. The only difference would be that I have modern athletic wear. That’s why I refrain. I don’t call it fun and never have.

    That’s a great old starting line shot. I doubt those ladies would have been very speedy on the track.

    I rather like that photo of the cyclists, and have seen several from that era with similar poses.

    three great photos — portraying the era of each — serious, but also brings forth a giggle or two. Good job and the wry writing is good too.

    The cyclists are worried that their assistants might let go, and I like the movement captured with the sprinters. But that ball team looks tough. I bet some chew tobacco and spit as good as any man.

    I have the realization, as I continue to wait on my broken ankle to heal, that I will probably never be able to run again. In my mind I still can, but I have to keep it as a reminder when in a crosswalk that if I need to go faster the old pegs are probably going to let me down. Literally.
