You just never know


After posting about the Richmond Road Race on Tuesday and linking the website for the race photo's and sniveling that I couldn't "steal" a photograh to post on the blog, (reality check people, this is their living).  I was checking some of your comments and you know what?  There was a comment from the Race Photographer!!!  I was amazed that he could find me but then I remembered I had linked to his site and then removed it....duh!!

Anyway, we exchanged emails about the race and the photo's, and his business In My Sights Photography and again, you know what? 

Bill is so nice that he forwarded me a copy of the race photo!!  Thanks so much Bill, that photo is going on my sidebar!!! 

He also sent me the photo of Dave who is promoting the Perth Kilt Run in June.  This race is going for the World Record for the most runner's running in a kilt. The first 500 people who register receive a Kilt in their race kit to wear during the race and you get a choice of kilt colour as well!!!   As of January 21, 2010, there have been 418 regestrants.  How can you tell I'm excited about this race!  I'm not even part of the promotional team!    Anyway, enough free promo, but come on you Toronto peeps, it's only three hours drive for you!!  LOL.

I'd better get some work done here again I'm stealing company time.  Tonight I'm meeting up with some Tweeters (is that what its called?), some of us have never met before so it should be fun.  We are going for a 5K run along the canal and then having a bite to eat!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

You just never know what will come of a blog post. That was really nice of his to contact you and offer you the photo. It's one of the best I've seen.

That was SUPER nice of him. On the other hand, a reality check that what you write really can be read by anyone.

Most race photographers take a slightly different tact. Glad to hear yours was one of the good guys!

What a great photo and so nice of the guy!

The kilt run should be fun! I did one a few years back in August during the Highland Games in High River. I made a short kilt out of some Nova Scotia tartan material that I had. The race give-a-way was a tartan sash and tartan Defeet running socks! I can hardly wait to see your photos!

that is a great picture. and if you can promote his business some in the process it's not a bad idea to let you have one! good for you.

500 people who wear a kilt while they are running! I didn't know this interesting race.

Enjoy this race.
