A single picture can be more powerful than thousands of words. These photos are inspiring for me to race and explore more than my little corner of the world. Today, I hope you’ll be similarly inspired.

Love them! Thanks Jason

Great shots… unfortunately we are due for 10 inches of snow tomorrow, so your post basically makes me bitter and angry :)

Jason

Maybe we can say, “makes me look forward to spring.” :)

Amy

Excellent post. Photos are great inspiration on those days you just want to hang up the sneakers! You better Pinterest this! ;)

Jason

Thanks Amy! I should probably sign up for a Pinterest account shouldn’t I…?

Greg Strosaker

What, no predawn imagery? Are you leaving that domain to me?

Jason

Didn’t want to impose on your turf. But there ARE 6 sunrise pictures!

Greg Strosaker

Sunrises are when you eat breakfast, after you’re done with the run and showered. Oh, and have done your cannonball routine, of course.

Joe

Love the sunrise pictures. I blogged last week about catching my first, though slightest, sighting of a sunrise this year during my early morning run. Those great pictures reminded to have camera on hand these next couple weeks! Spring is coming!

Thanks for sharing!

I am already a die-hard trail runner (natural and “urban”) but these photo inspired me even more to explore the world through running — all surfaces, all weather. Beautiful shots.
