2009 Toronto Marathon - Photos

I was expecting my wife to record my finish at the Toronto Marathon. As I was approaching the finish line, I didn't see her and my daughter, only my sister was there to test out her new camera... I wondered around the Queen's park for a good 20 - 30 minutes, I couldn't find them. Finally I went to the finish line again, there was my wife holding the camcorder shooting at the finish line! It turns out when she got to downtown and parked the car, my daughter wanted to go to pee, so while I was running my perfect finish of the race, they were busy looking for a public washroom - perfect timing :-)
That evening my daughter complained that I didn't wait for her to finish the race... and she wants me to run another marathon next day and wait for her this time! :-)
