Believe it or not, Margaret ran a 5K race while we were in Aalborg. It was in a park along the a fjord called Lin, which flows past Aalborg on its northern edge. Margaret asked me to run with her, but I declined. If you ever see me running, you should start running too, because something dangerous will be chasing me. While Margaret ran, I made photos along Linfjord’s bank.

Along the Fjord

Plenty of people were there that day for the race, but plenty of people were there that day for things other than the race, too. Lots of people kayaked in the fjord.

Several boats passed by, farther out in the water, while I was there. I photographed this boat by this pier, where people would climb down to swim. Margaret told me that she was in this park one day while I was working, and watched two middle-aged women climb down those steps naked for their swim.

I noticed this little stack of stones and tried to make more of an artistic image out of the scene.

Finally, here’s Margaret finishing her race. I made this image with my iPhone, but the rest with my Nikon Df and the 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-G Nikkor lens.

    Super cool, she can run 5k and still look happy!
    Like you, I’d need a grizzly bear for motivation.

    Good job Margaret. I ran until I was about 45 years old, and the knees started going bad. Finished the Sunburst 10K at Notre Dame in South Bend three years in a row …. Each year my times got a little slower. I could run a 10K because I paced myself for the 6 miles. Tryed a 5K only once at St. Mary’s and those people took off like a bat out of hell … Not as long as a 10K, so they ran a shorter, much faster race … I didn’t like it. So I give Margaret credit for running the 5K.

      I used to volunteer at the Sunburst! Remember how the Tribune’s slogan was “sheds more light” and their advertising involved a sun? And they were the first sponsors of the race?

    Lovely pictures and lovely wife! How does she still look so amazing after running a 5k? Tell her great job from me!

        I guess so! Good for her. ;)

    I’m like you when it comes to running – there is no reason to do it unless I am threatened with something worse. And there are few things worse than running.

      I knew there was something I liked about you!
