We all seem to be going somewhere at some time, and not everything we do is relate running, right? How about a thread where people show off some of their wonderful pictures from their travels?
We went to Prague in 2008, and these ended up being two of my all time favorites of the over 400 photos we took:
In a little town outside of Prague called Cesky Krumlov. The houses reflecting off the water was perfect:
My second favorite is section of Prague, itself, at night. I caught the light just right for this picture:

Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."
Okay, I'll bite. Here's a shot looking down from the CN Tower in Toronto. DD must have been about 3 here.
Holly, my sister used to work in that pinkish sky scraper office building in the background, 42nd floor. Scotiabank centre. I used to live a few blocks to the left in an apartment building, 19th floor. Great views all around and I could see across Lake Ontario to Rochester from the rooftop pool of my building on a clear day.
ETA - Leslie, those are absolutely awesome!
"During a marathon, I run about two-thirds of the time. That's plenty." - Margaret Davis, 85 Ed Whitlock regarding his 2:54:48 marathon at age 73, "That was a good day. It was never a struggle."
A little off the road town that we stumbled upon while in Australia in 2009. It looked like something out of a Mother Goose book or something. This was my favorite place:
Off the beaten path...one of my most memorable marathon course...in my own country. A race course that was set up just for me...this bridge is so memorable to me for so many reasons...

I love that picture, Nancy, and that marathon you ran! Awesome.
Very cool picture-book house, Leslie!
From Sedona in February.
And having fun (?) in the desert in Phoenix
Currently up in Squaw Valley for Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run. Lots of snow still, which has required a change in the route. We took the tram up to the top for a pre-run ceremony. It's gorgeous!

A year ago today we were heading out to the great state of Alaska for our dream trip. Too many wonderful pictures to post here, but here are a couple of favorites:
Some of our best memories are the boating trips in Northern Michigan and Canada, but those were before digita cameras. Beautiul territory though!
