Escape


After a hard week’s work, it is good to find an escape; the canine friends preferred to dig a nest on the mud land and curled up into it, but I preferred a 21-km Penang Bridge Run, if not a full marathon, on last Sunday, at 3:30am.
 
While torturing endurance and searching the full meaning of limit, it was beyond capacity to carry a DSLR on shoulder, though photography is akin to my breathing.
 
So curling into a ball is well shared, but not the pictures of me whose muscle cramped after three hours of "raw" experience, on running, and kept running.

Spying on the dogs like this is good, maybe you could include a tree bark on the foreground, then compress the view by zooming in.

I read about the Penang bridge run and how I love to be there running, if not shooting along the bridge. I wouldn't mind doing either one

I'm very impressed with you taking part in the run, especially since you continued even with a muscle cramp. I hope you had a quick recovery.

I admire anyone that takes up running and sticks with it. I've always been a weak runner. The dogs look very peaceful curled up in the mud. :)

The dog in the front looks similar to one I used to have.

I guess those dogs are comfy in their muddy bed. Kudos to you for completing that run!

Podziwiam Cię, że podczas takiego długiego maratonu zobaczyłeś jeszcze pieski śpiące pod mostem. Pozdrawiam.
I admire you, that during such a long marathon saw more dogs sleeping under a bridge. Yours.
