Ellie Pictures

Our friend Jodi, who is a fabulous photographer, took these pictures of Ellie a while ago.  Just thought we'd share them.

Victoria Half Marathon

Tammy raced the Victoria Half Marathon yesterday morning.  I was signed up, but wasn't able to race due to an injury.  So instead I took the opportunity to take some pictures of the day.

 The leaders of the Half
 Starting to get congested
 This woman dropped her shirt and ran back for it.  I didn't think she would make it without causing an accident.  
 Lots of runners....5,000+
 I spotted Tammy in Beacon Hill Park
 Tammy not loving a hill
 Walking through some ducks
 View from the Beacon Hill Park flag, runners and walkers
 Mens Marathon leader and overall winner
 Love birds
Not bad pictures for a cell phone on sports mode.

Tammy ended up beating her personal best by 6 minutes (1:39:xx or 1:40:xx depending on Gun time or Chip time).  If I was running I think Tammy would have beat me by 10 minutes.  So proud of her.  

Happy Thanksgiving Day today!

Fall Day Walk

This morning I took Ellie out for brisk walk in a nearby park.  Fall is in the air.
