They will come thundering down our city Syracuse neighborhood hill again Sunday.
The runners participating in the second edition of the Syracuse Half Marathon are sure to be a colorful bunch.
Cold, too. Forecasts right now are for high temperatures in the 20s.
About 1,600 runners have signed up to log the 13.1 miles that loop around our city of Syracuse.
If last year’s participants are any indication, some will be wearing just shorts and a nylon running shirt.
They will look warm, and will be among the first to come zooming down the hill and past the house of my dear wife Karen and I. No expert in running am I, but it very much looks like they are generating their own warming power plant.
Some will be wearing sweats, bottom and top. The smarter if slower ones, I’d say.
There will be plenty of hats. We shall see how original the runners are about the head gear.
I intend to be out there snapping away with the iPhone and/or iPad to post the glory of it all here on Sunday.
I took Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle out in the driveway of neighbor Kelly with us last year, but I do believe that the photo Karen caught inside our house above captured the dog’s eye view best.
