Waiting for Mama at the Suncoast Half Marathon

Among the many images I took away from the Suncoast Half Marathon at Lakewood Ranch on Sunday, one of my favorites was not of the runners at all, but of two dogs and man looking hard for something..

Check 'em out. You can see they are straining to see their mom, obviously their favorite runner.

As soon as she comes into sight, they lock on and give chase, nearly pulling the gentleman with the leash down.

Such exuberance, such, longing, such love!

For the record, nearly 400 runners took part in the 13.1 mile race. From everything I saw, there was little to no  interruption of community life. A great edition to a great place to live, work and play.

Hope to see it return next year.
