I am one of "those" people who feel like if I don't get a photo or two of a running event....well, it just didn't happen! :) Thankfully, the awesome friends I've made through running are (mostly) tolerant of me lining them up at races for a group shot...not to mention the photos I get while on training runs! Actually, most of them are fantastic...and take their places as soon as I pull out my camera!
Anyway, yesterday I found a free on-line app for creating photo collages.....and I've had a ball trying to figure it out!! The results of my first attempts are three groups of photos that document a "race" I was in for each month of 2016!! I had forgotten than I'd actually pulled that off this year.
I am in awe of these people that I have met through running. They are a tough group who show up in almost all kinds of weather conditions to compete in a race....well, we PAY for those races, of course we're gonna be there! haha However, training runs are done in all sorts of weather, too, and a lot of them start before the sun comes up.....in the cold of winter and the heat of summer!
This year I did: 9 5Ks ( 3.1 miles)
2 10Ks (6.2 miles)
2 Half Marathons (13.1 miles)
1 Marathon (26.2 miles)
Most importantly, I logged over 1,000 training miles! That was a big deal for me. Of course, training for doing my first marathon contributed to the increase in those miles......but it was so worth all of the extra time, energy, effort and additional new shoes! :)
My next computer project is to figure out how to make a slide show of the many, many pictures I took while we were out on the trails, roads and sidewalks training for our upcoming events....or just enjoying some relaxing running time together.
Hope you have a great end to 2016. . .and a wonderful New Year!!
