P is for Profile!


This is the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C. This is taken at about mile 23 so they are looking a bit tired. If you enlarge you'll see the Jefferson Memorial in the back. Beautiful fall day, perfect running weather.

A beautiful day indeed! Love the view of the Jefferson Memorial, but like jabblog, can't help but wonder if the runners were paying much attention to the view or just getting to the finish line! Terrific shot!

Enjoy your day!

I was taking the metro to Union Station and ran into a bunch of the marathoners when I switched trains. It was a (P)erfect day for it weather wise!
Nice (P)hotos!

I think that bit of pavement was part of our Segway tour a few weeks ago! Great fun!

I like your choice of 'profile' - I bet you're the only one with that this week. :)

I like the shot of the JM in the distance. Yes, they do look a bit tired. Did you know someone running?
BTW, I also like books by J. Picoult.

I love the different expressions on their faces. Looks like a Perfect day though.

On behalf of the ABC Team, thank you for sharing.
