Dedicated to Marjon, who takes the best self-portraits in the world. I still have a long ways to go. But lots of good memories in these shots, as scary as many of them are. I was going to post a 2011 recap, with "normal" shots, but am feeling particularly lazy, so I leave you with these, instead.
|Snowshoeing with Meissner near Sisters, OR. The finest in performance sunglasses.
|Reflecting on a lawn after a fun run in the Marin Headlands. Beautiful run, beautiful day. The next day I would seriously tweak my calf, which would put a damper on the first half of 2011.
|Bocce ball fun on the 4th of July. Good times with good friends (and none of us got the least bit competitive....).
|Fun in the beer garden at a bike crit in downtown Portland. It took several shots after several beers, to actually get the bikes and me all in the same frame.
|A visit to the rose garden with Ma and Pa. Potentially one of the better self portraits of the year.
|Canal touring with Meghan in Amsterdam. Pierre was blocked out by my giant head. Sorry Pierre! Wow--just look at how much more area my head takes up than Meghan's. No wonder self portraits are such a challenge.
|More sightseeing in the Netherlands, this time with Annette. This was the day after the 100K and we were both feeling it. We did manage to get out and see a bit of this cute little town.
|Crewing fun at Pine to Palm. There wasn't much crewing to be done, sadly enough for our runner, but it left us some time to entertain ourselves.
|My sister's first marathon, and my attempt to photo-journal the event. Luckily Lisa did a better job running, than I did at capturing it. For a relatively skinny girl, I sure do seem to have a lot of chins.
|I was so excited to be at the Grand Canyon I couldn't control my expression.
|Photographing while running is harder than it looks.
|The GC group leaving Las Vegas.
