Victory is Mine!

Thanks to those of you who had inventive ways of getting my race pic that I was too cheap to purchase: Your ways of circumventing copyright laws were appreciated, but only Kelsa actually went and DID it for me and then emailed me the pic! I love it when you guys offer suggestions for help, but love it even more when you do the work for me!

So, if you look at my profile pic, you'll see that it has been updated with this pic. Yes, the watermark is visible, but I don't care. I'm just so happy to have that pic in my possession -- and for free! Thanks again, Kelsa!

Running Jen said...

Awesome! Great picture! I might need the tip after I do the NYC half next weekend, as I know I'm going to want a picture, but probably not want to pay for it!

screenshots are your friend :) for example: created you a gif of the five pics that were on the photo site: http://gickr.com/results4/anim_c04108e3-69ed-42b4-ed50-bf9f8d6128cc.gif

and here in bigger/slower animation:
http://gickr.com/results4/anim_3cb25c4f-22c1-1144-7999-cf094398690b.gif

to do that, just did a screenshot (screen capture) and then uploaded the 5 still shots for gickr.com to convert to a moving gif. on a mac it's really easy to screenshot, and most other operating systems today too.

Please tell me HOW you were able to look good in your race pics! I always look like I am going to pass out and die. Great job - I'm sure that it was a tough one to do away from the fam.

Speaking of, that picture of Norah w/ the sun glasses was too cute :)

TNTcoach Ken said...

Wow, Fabienne did you a solid! You must have seen the photographers a mile away with that big smile.

So, in the future, I should contact Kelsa for my illegal photo stealing - thanks for the tip!
P.S. It is a GREAT pic of you :)

Lesley said...

What is your e-mail? I have a tip for these pics that somebody taught me!

Krissy said...

sweet! I have tried myself to do the same thing! hahaha..those picture are so expensive!

Mrs. K said...

i still say get it for home- it's too good to pass up!! :) maybe ask for it a mother's day gift?

Jess said...

Wow that's an awesome picture of you and I'm glad you were able to get it without paying an arm and a leg.

MCM Mama said...

Nice to have friends who'll break the law for you. ;o)

Viper said...

Way to teach Norah about stealing. Nice pic. Cheers!

Rio said...

Can't really see the watermark in the small pic. Great race picture! One day, I hope to have one where I look like I'm running (not powerwalking) and smiling (not serious). :)

teacherwoman said...

That's awesome! Glad Kelsa was able to do that for ya!

Wes said...

LOL... I'm calling the fed... ;-) Have a great weekend!

Carly said...

Nice! The way I see it, you are simply promoting the company's work. It is is watermarked with their logo. Justification complete. : )

lifestudent said...

I reported you. You are now blacklisted from racing. And if you do weasel yourself into a race, all of the photogs know who you are and they will not take pictures of you anymore.

Monica said...

It serves these companies right for raking their customers over the coals with their outrageous prices.

Sarah said...

Awesome picture!!!

Ashley Perry said...

YAY!!! Doesn't it feel good when you can work around the system? I love when this happens cause I am with you, the prices are ridiculous! I want to get some pics too... how exactly did you get the pic?

Christie said...

I don't blame you. I had to do something bootleg to get my race pic too.

Natalie D said...

love it! nice.

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

Glad you got a copy of the picture! It's a great one.

Crystal said...

Did you see the pics from Disney are $20 a piece or $79 for a disc? Um, no. Nice job getting a good pic!

Agate Lake Girl said...

Maybe it should say "Victory is Kelsa's!" :)

Great pic indeed!

Stuart said...

That's a great pic, I always look like I am dieing!
