Down by the river a mother duck was heading out for a stroll with her brood.
I thought that it was funny watching them getting ready. It reminded me of a group of runners at the starting line of a marathon getting ready. A couple of them are stretching while one is ready to go and another is checking out the competition.
Then they are off. Like little Nascars jockeying for position behind mom the pace car.
It is kind of funny that I thought of these two analogies when I saw these ducks since I am not a runner, though I do spend a bit of time hiking around parks, and I am not a big Nascar fan.
