Mississauga Photo Overload + Video

After a week of rest and relaxation to the max (though I did run twice, a 6K and a 12K) along with eating and drinking everything I had restricted from my diet leading up to the race, I'm ready to get back into training mode. I'll still be taking it pretty easy for another week or two since I know I am still in recovery, but I do have a little race coming up soon and need to get myself back into marathon condition.

But first... another look at last weekend's Mississauga Marathon. I actually purchased my official pics for a change since there were several good ones and I thought the $39 was worth it for the complete digital set.


















Am I the only one who likes to look up results for people who show up in my race pics? #1871 finished with a chip time of 4:02:34. (I win.)
















#1338 finished with a chip time of 4:01:48. (I win.)




#1338 finished with a chip time of 4:03:05. (I win.)



































Check out this finish line video. Watch for me to the right and take note of my legs almost buckling after the mat.

The photographer got so many pics of you. I've been to lots of races where I get a sum total of zero. (I think the photographers are trying to tell me something)

I now have a new hobby! Looking up other runners times. Great idea! I'd love to know how the people I ran with for a while or ca'chicked along the way ended up finishing. Great idea!

Laura said...

I think it is so funny you check to see when everyone finishes (I'll be doing the same thing now). Congrats on the marathon you are very inspiring.

Runner Leana said...

Fantastic pictures! Hilarious that you look up other people's time, but you definitely did win!!

ShirleyPerly said...

Yes, $39 is a deal for a whole set of photos on CD, particularly if you have some good ones, which you obviously do!

lindsay said...

under $40 for ONE picture is a steal, sadly. a whole bunch? heck yes you must buy them!
