Before I became injured, Katie and I signed up for the Run Under the Lights at the Holiday Lights at Seneca Creek Sate Park. I just LOVE holiday lights. I love the brightness and cheerfulness at the darkest part of the year. Around here there are walk-through lights at Brookside Gardens and at the zoo, but there was a drive through at Seneca Creek. We had driven through many times in years past so I jumped at the chance to run through it. They cap the entrants at less than 800 so it was a lower key race. KT ran and I walked (finally I am allowed to walk some distance…hopefully to run soon) taking pictures as I went along. I know that if I use the flash, you can see too much of the works of the lights, but if I don’t use the flash it is hard to get a good picture. Here are a few nonetheless….the Gaithersburg logo
The runners probably did not really appreciate the lights, but while walking I could enjoy them.
Although this one is terrifically out of focus, it almost looks like skiers with a spray of snow.
I particularly liked this peacock…
And here is one of my epic fails…I still think that it is pretty cool with its threads of light!
