TT: 2022 in Photos

Last week’s topic was: Your Year in Photos 

Definitely one of my favorites topics because I LOVE to take pictures. The challenge was limiting each month to ONE or TWO pictures.

Here you go:


My first half marathon of the year and it took place in Central Park, NYC.


I took my annual vacation to Florida’s east coast to visit friends

and ran a half marathon (in the rain)

At the of of the month, I returned to NYC to run another half marathon.


I ran a 5 mile race in the worst weather conditions ever.


Couldn’t resist signing up for a new race in Central Park at peak cherry blossom time

My favorite local half marathon returned to its original course and I had my best half marathon finish time of the year.

May (my favorite month).

I ran a 5k in a costume (a first for me)

I ran to the top of Prospect Mountain again

I had a blast with my tennis peeps in Naples, Florida 

and celebrated my birthday while I was there with a dinner at sunset

The tulips were in full bloom in Washington Park, Albany


I ran the Freihofer Run for Women for the 15th time…

and won a baseball bat at a 5k.

and viewed the Interactive Van Gogh exhibit (for the 3rd time)


Celebrating the Fourth in (running) style…

For the first time since the Pandemic I worked in NYC (and ran a 5k in Brooklyn one evening.)

Sundays in the summer were reserved for boat time on Lake George


A new furry addition to the family

and on my Mondays off, I did some scenic hikes in MA.


I talked my friends in joining me for a Labor Day weekend half marathon

I also discovered a new place to view and pick sunflowers


Another successful race-cation.. this year’s took place in Maine.

In addition to a race and other shenanigans, it included multiple beach sunrises

I got into the holiday spirit for a 5K

Reunited with some college friends in NYC and enjoyed peak fall foliage during a run in Central Park


A busy month with three races: 15k, half marathon and a 10k


Back to NYC to race and spectate the holiday displays.

Happy Running! What was your favorite photo or event from 2022? Please share.







Since today is Tuesday, I’m linking up with Zenaida and Kim (Kooky Runner).

  1. Wow Darlene, you really had quite a year! Like some of the other commenters, I love the variety of race photos- all the seasons represented! You also had some nice race-cations. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for for next year.

  2. You definitely had a busy year, and not just in your running shoes. I think I already have six races (and one climb) on my calendar for 2023…but I bet you have more 😉
