At 14.00 this afternoon many sporty people, young and old, were out in the cold windy weather running the Sola Beach Marathon.
Actually it was a route passing the beach 3 times, or in other words 21,1 km. (Half marathon) That is what I call IMPRESSIVE !!:-)

I could get round that table three times - on a good day!

Must be tough on the lung! So, yes very impressive.

I almost can feel the moves there. Great outdoor picture!

A marathon in the middle of winter! That's impressive.

Anyone who runs a marathon is impressive. In winter I think even more so!

After a few kilometers, they must not have been cold at all. I might still be able to do that. I love exercising!

It would be nice for those who can make it. I couldn't.

I loved learning more about Norway through your photos and the commentary. The comments bring alive the great photos. I like the painting on the wall of the electric co. building!

Marathon? With this weather? They can't be human...

Good grief! Lois Anne has run two full Marathons and a number of half-marathons. Interestingly, the worst was the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Florida, a few years ago...it was in the low 30s (F) when it started. I had to wait in the car it was so cold!

Runners are nuts!

Can't imagine running in the snow and cold.
