...That is the Question
A question to anyone who might read this post:
Have you ever bought a race photo from those photographers that show up at races (e.g., Brightroom or MarathonFoto)??
I am considering ordering this time around. In my 11 half-marathons and 3 marathons, and three other races that had professional photography, I have not bought a single photo yet.
Besides the two proofs in my Pasadena Marathon post, I am considering getting one or two other photos I did not post. In one of them, I am holding hands with "The Ukrainian" while running, and in another, we are cheerfully peace-signing the camera. So that would be four photos, which at ~$15 each for unprotected printing is not cheap.
They also sell a digital CD for ~$50, which would contain all the pictures. I would have to print them if I wanted a physical copy, though. I've blown money away on worse things before, such as eye makeup and electronics that turned out not to work so well. And when will I get to run nearly a full marathon with someone again?
On another note, I have been packing up my stuff for transport to my new assignment at work. It is weird leaving a job exactly one month from when I left my second job. This one is tougher, since I've almost been there for three years (and I'm still 23). I realize how many people I have helped in my department, and people were actually wondering how my boss could let me go. I may be back in a few months, but it may not happen. Anyway, I ended up baking a cherry pie filling bread and some no-bake cookies, which got good reviews by my colleagues.
Also, I raised ~$100 for the Public Counsel. Yay! This is good, considering I didn't think I was going to get anything.
