…so instead of a blog post, I give you a link to photos of me at the half marathon. I can’t put the actual photos up here, as they are all copyrighted. And if you follow that link you will see that the photos are very low resolution, you know, so you can’t steal them off their website and avoid paying the huges prices for print copies to “improve Internet download speed.” The thing I find weird is that there is no photo of me crossing the finish line. There is a series of three photos of me approaching the (not seen in the photo) finish line – which actually are kinda neat ‘cuz you can see that I’m making a break for it at the end and pulling ahead of the people around me (despite being about to fall ill with a nasty, nasty flu, I might add) – but none of me crossing the finish line. And you think that would be the most important one, the one they’d be sure to have to sell to you – the one proving you actually finished! But alas, they do not. I still think I might buy some – they are a bit pricy, but they turned out so well and, hey, you don’t run a half marathon every day, now do you?
