weekly winners: from happiest place on earth


January 10-16, 2010

I started my week down in chilly Florida, running the Disney World Marathon. And ended the previous week with the half marathon. Yes, it was Goofy Challenge weekend!

Race report coming eventually ... but the important thing is we finished! 39.3 miles in two days!

Once we were done racing, however, we stayed a few days to play.

Even though it was well into January, Disney was still all decked out for Christmas. And still playing Christmas music. And we saw carolers on our last day in the park.

But it was nice to see the holiday lights ...

weekly winners: back to the beach


August 30 - September 5, 2009

Time for our annual end-of-summer trip to Virginia Beach! The primary reason is for me to run the Rock and Roll half marathon, but we also enjoy the American Music Festival that coincides with the race. Yup, I'll be posting more music later. I have some shows to catch up with from last week, too. And I'm still working on a couple race reports ... including this morning's race -- not my best, but not bad either, and I had a lot of fun!

Anyway, here are my Weekly Winners:

waiting birds
Eager birds
(The people next to us were feeding them. Ugh.)

Those people stopped shortly after this photo. But then some little boys stood right next to me and started throwing food at them. And we went back to the hotel.

stage lights
Lights at a concert. Kinda blurry, but I still like it.

neptune

Neptune, a 34-foot tall statue on the boardwalk in Virginia Beach.

Rewind to the beginning of the week, still at home. We spent our Sunday at the Virgin Free Fest. There were skydivers!

And finally, not nearly as cool as Neptune, but I kinda liked this creepy naked lady statue at Merriweather Post.

weekly winners: outer banks


August 9-15, 2009

We spent all of last week in the Outer Banks. Many of my photos look a lot like last week's post, since we arrived on Saturday. The sunsets were so beautiful, and different every day. I couldn't help myself!

We had a great week at the beach. Reading, relaxing and dining on great food. The house was perfect; gotta love the location!

It's always sad when our week comes to an end ... back to work tomorrow!

weekly winners: tropical paradise


April 12-18, 2009

I had a change of scenery last week. We were on vacation! In Jamaica!

I've only been home a few hours, but I couldn't wait to start going through my photos. As usual, I couldn't resist the beautiful sunsets and palm trees. It was hard to narrow it down, but here are some of my favorites. (See more photos over here. I'll probably be adding to this set.)
