I’m home!

Took the red eye home from Vegas last night, so it’s back to the real world for me.

I did love listening to 680 news (3, 4, 5 times a day!) on our drive from the airport downtown and hearing the lead story – a BEAR in a tree. If they didn’t repeat it every 5 minutes, I might have thought my 4 hours of sleep self made it up. Gotta love Canada.

In any case, I will post some pictures once I have a chance to upload them. In the meantime, the official race pictures from Ottawa came out. Did I mention I tried to smile for the cameras when I saw them? Well, it worked, and here’s the best one of them:

The rest are here if you’re curious/bored. Funny the one that’s missing is of me with my medal actually posing. Oh well. Mental note that next time I should smile AND suck in!

Rant: Why are the pictures so freaking expensive? I totally want to order this one and digital prints cost $40+! I appreciate the need to cover costs, but  maybe if the pricing was more accessible then enough people would pay so they wouldn’t need to charge $40 per photo! Grumble.

    You got some good ones! (I always forgot to suck in too – lol)

    I hear ya on the ridonkulous pricing. I have only ever purchased photos once and that was for my first marathon. I think I paid $90 for the high-res digitals of all photos.

    I know! I want photos from the run I did but while I won’t pay $40 I totally would pay $5 or $10.
