3.10 - Race photos
It took a long time to get the photos uploaded onto one of the race directors laptops. The only card reader kept breaking with the eye-fi card. I took over 1700 pictures. Kevin (bright jacket in the top right) also took race photos but he only took 1 picture of each finisher and I tried to get as many as possible. I also got pictures of people going around their laps because I always wish I had them when I run long races. I created 4 albums and the 5th has 24 photos and that's what the student photographer took that they posted. (I logged in and there were 6 albums but they had one as private. I changed it to share because they were other race photos. Good thing they never changed the password) Since I took so long to write this I ended up finding a blog of someone who ran this race and she photo credited me. Boy did that make me happy. She also ran the 50k that I ran and I remember here there. I'm even in one of her photos on her blog! (Getting the photography credit made me so happy so I thought on the March Mad Dash albums, I should say the photos were by me.)
Taking photos at the race made me want to take photos at all races that I'm available for. It was killing me not to run it myself though.
Dave and I went to Target and then Lowe's. We spent $119 at Target even though we only had 5 things on our list. We bought 2 new light fixtures so that we could replace the keyless fixture that is nothing but a light bulb hanging down as a ceiling light. Dave wanted to install them when we got home but I said we had to watch Dexter. There were 3 episodes left in the season and he thought I would wait. All I think about is Dexter so I don't want to wait.
We watched Dexter. We made quesadillas for dinner. We watched some other TV too.
I fell asleep on the couch fairly early. It was a little after 10 and that's early for me on a Saturday. Usually Dave falls asleep by then on a Saturday.
