I hope everyone had a fun and safe Labor Day weekend. This week I am sharing pictures from the 34th annual Macon Labor Day Road Race. (No, I did not run).

Participants take off at the start of the 1-Mile Fun Run at Central City Park Monday …..

  21. I just recently started running and, although I still am not all that enamored of it, I am definitely committed. It has gotten better and it is for a worthwhile cause as it is to raise funds and awareness for pancreatic cancer.

    Thanks for hosting Outdoor Wednesday.

  27. Sheesh! I only run if something mean and nasty is chasing me! I couldn't even run the one mile with the kiddies! But I can walk (fast) with the best of 'em! I try to walk 1 1/2 miles every day (up hill) to meet hubby after work. Does a body good!

  28. I can't run anymore, but I can sure cover some ground in my speed walking.

  29. I'm afraid my legs would be really hurting after a run like that, with my bursitis.

    Looks like everyone was having fun.

    We went to an all day Christian concert on Saturday. Lazed around on Sunday and bought the family a B.B.Q. meal for Monday. The weather was just right.

  32. This run is similar to the marathon I ran 5 years ago during the Singapore Marathon. It is an out of this world experience.

  34. Hi Susan,
    Those runs always look like so much fun. Except for the running part, of course! That's not my thing. I'm more of a yoga girl. Anyway, I meant to leave you a hello yest. when I linked up and got sidetracked and now it's late Thurs. but, better late than not at all.
    Thanks for hosting us every week. Hope you have a fun weekend.
    Come by for a visit, it's been awhile since you dropped by!
