I Love Running
I think about running all the time. All of my friends are running friends and all of the best times of my life have been while running. I especially love racing sometimes going to 20 or 25 a year. The best memories I have are all at races.
I have made pictures at races. To take these pictures I carry a camera while running. Digital cameras have made this easy. I used to carry a disposable and get the pictures developed as soon as I got home and just scan them into the computer. This picture on the right was taken with one of those disposable, one time use Kodak cameras with a cardboard covers. I can remember carrying them in Bix 7 and they would be all soaked with sweat after the race, the pictures would still develop OK. The digital pictures are much better.
I like to think back to PRs I have made years ago. Like the Ottawa 10 miler in December I ran in 77 minutes or the Oglesby Turkey Trot 3-miler in 20.10. I remember getting 2nd in my age group at the Alexis 4-mile run two years in a row with sub 28 minute times. Getting a PR like that which you are proud of is one of the best feelings in the world. I even met my wife at a race nearly 20 years ago. We got married Bix weekend on the 29th of July, 1990. I love running.
