Not in Your Typical Mountie Day

Had this photo taken at the completion of the Ottawa Marathon a few weeks ago. I can’t imagine this was an overly enjoyable moment for the Mountie, with an endless flow of sweaty runners lining up for photos and handshakes.

OM 2As you can see, there’s a fair amount of distance between us in the photo, and I didn’t have the heart to get any closer and infringe on his space.

I finished up my run in Ottawa in 3:29 and change, a decent time given that it was my third full marathon in 12 weeks. Now it’s time to take a break for summer.

Oh, who am I kidding?
