My Favorite Run in Pictures

The topic for this week's Take It And Run Thursday is "your favorite run in pictures." Anyone who knows me knows that St. George is my  favorite place to run/race. I grew up in St. George and I always  loved to watch the marathon runners come through the finish line.  And even as a little girl, I knew I would run a marathon and that St. George would be my first, and that was the beginning of my life as a runner!
  
I love this picture of all the runners leaving the big Metropolis of Veyo, 
gearing up for that mile long hill.  It really is an awesome sight on race 
morning.  You know that you are part of something special!

Then there is the volcano.  The Diamond Cinder Cone.  I have always been fascinated by volcanoes, and you can almost see into this one! 

Snow's Canyon is so beautiful in the early morning.  
The sun hits it just right.  It is simply spectacular!

When you can see the city, you know you are "almost there.
Just a few more miles!"

St. George is such a cute little town. Although it has grown a lot since 
I lived there, it is still my favorite place to run!

I agree. It sure looks like a nice place to run (and you'll get a fast time to boot!).
