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.
