Photos of where you run

    Someone suggested this on another thread so heres a photo taken on a run I did in the snow the other day. Usually a fast downhill, but the other day it was slightly slower for obvious reasons :)

    By the way, these were the instructions robinph posted to my question of 'how to display your photo image..'
    Hit the "All sizes" button in Flickr, then pick the medium just so that it's not the huge version that you select. At the bottom of that page your'll see a text box with the path to the actual image, then without the spaces do this:
    img] You can also wrap that whole code in and [ /url] tags as well to link to the full Flickr version if you want, and that is the way that they "prefer" you to do things anyway.



  • Great Idea Slogger Jogger.
    Not where I routinely run but taken after a run in November
    Robinph: Can you help a picasaweb user with size issues?

  • Once viewing the image you want select "link to this photo", then from the pulldown pick the size and copy the url in the "link" box. Add that path inbetween the img] tags.  I'm not certain on this though as I don't really use Picassa that much.

  • Here's a place I have had the pleasure to run a few times, however, there are other posters on this forum to whom this location will be a lot more familiar. It's at the end of the boardwalk section, after Djouce, heading towards Oldbridge. Apologies for the crappy picture, it was taken on a mobile phone and the light levels didn't blend very well.


  • Marlay Park

    Bushy Park

    I was going for the hatrick of parks this morning but St Endas was still closed :mad:
    I'm going to look forward to tomorrows picture/running session as my lsr route takes me out the door early in the morning and up the mountains.

  • That's a picture of Caragh Lake in Kerry. One loop is 15 very hilly miles, and it's by far and away my favourite route.

    While I don't do the entire loop more than once or twice a week, on other days I just run x miles along the lake and turn around at some stage. I still can't get enough of the scenery, even though I know each meter by heart by now.

  • Mount venus road

    Top of Stocking Lane

    Breamor road
    Snowed on me from about mile 4 till 16 but it was fun.

  • What a great thread ...some fantastic pictures.
    I must say that my routes are fairly boring compared to some of these.
    Mostly city routes...i must take a few pictures though

  • From today's 18 Miler (cross posted from training log):


    Snowy mountains in the background (which you can't see in the smaller image) framed it nicely. This is the top of Vico Road, Killiney, Looking over the bay to Shankill and Bray, and after hitting the top of the hill, with only 3 miles home, it's always a welcome view. :)

  • Hey KC does that mean you stopped for a rest :D

  • Not for that shot! That was taken at a steady 12 km/hour. :) I did take 30 seconds to take the far inferior picture of the boats in Sandycove!

    Interestingly, I ran past one of those solar powered car speed monitoring devices in Dun Laoghaire, and it told me I was doing 34 km/hour. I should've been ready with the camera-phone for that one!

  • i dont think a photo of my route along the N11 would cut it here :(

  • Carrigaline to Crosshaven:


    From the air....


  • Few Pics from my Sligo route




  • I want to run in all these places.....

  • Re-awakening an old thread...

    Photo from Ben Gorm taken from last years race.

    This is what we ran up the day before.

    This was the view from the top:

  • I have bought an innov8 back pack to carry my camera about, so looking forward to the lsrs starting again and I'll hope to carry it for Donothoponpops Wicklow way exploits if its feasible.

  • Forgot about this thread, and now I've been running in some more interesting places than Dublin I realise that I didn't actually get all that many pictures of those spots. I did do a bit of altitude training running around this lump of rock and the bigger one next to it though:

  • ...and yet another bump from me with a picture of me running amongst the mountains. Not quite at high this time, but it was ******* cold and also very steep to get up there.

    Your such a novice, first rule, don't get your shadow in the picture :D

  • That was deliberate, honest.

    The sun was behind me though obviousy, and I couldn't see the screen of the phone properly. Thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

    I have since discovered that one of the other guys on this course ran from the hotel up to the ski base the other day along the access road which is about 600m straight up from here. Think I need to work on my mountain running a bit more before giving that a go. I don't much like the idea of being up there in only my running gear though waiting for the bus back down though.

  • Some low res from my phone of Wicklow Head about 2 miles from my house:

  • Cool! I used to love that run. I stayed a weekend once in the lighthouse there. I timed myself running the stairs from bottom to top and put the time into the visitors book. Others had done it so I continued the trend :)

  • Here's another one for you:

    Lake Wakitipu in the front, Queenstown off camera to the left, Queenstown Gardens just infront which we ran around along the path towards Frankton, the snowy mountains behind are the Remarkables at which I start my four days of exams at 9am tomorrow, and just to the right of the hill in between the trees and the snow is where I'll be going for a skydive next Saturday. :D

  • A link to just one of many great photos from yesterday's hill race. Magnificent views.

    This is down in Hook, Wexford, my parents have a house down here so I thought I would make them sth for there 30th annerversary, I normally run around here when I go down, it's just over 5 miles from their house to the lighthouse and back, I found it hard to get motivated last time I went down :confused:
    Silly it's just beautiful. The picture is actually 5 pictures I took stitched together.

  • Deleted...

  • I dont actually run along here but I do some cross training walks up this hill


  • Ok I have about 4 beautiful images that I wanted to put up here but now that I have discovered Im crap at adding pictures I will wait until I learn how to do it properly. Aaah technology!!

  • Where abouts did you take the photo as a matter of interest?

    To paste in a photo its handy to upload your photos on a facility like flickr. Then you simply insert a link to the flickr image.

  • Thanks SJ I'll try it out. The photo is from the Millenium Cross just outside Portroe in Tipperary. Its over looking Lough Derg and you can see for miles, Clare, Tipperary and Limerick all at the same time. Breath taking:)
