The Art of Running

Remember the Bumper Stickers from back in February?  I'm looking into getting some more on hand so I can do another giveaway, but in the midst of my looking into this they asked me if I'd like to try out a product from their sister company, Easy Canvas Prints, in the meantime.  I checked it out, played around on the site some and decided I could make it pretty running related.  So, I said sure (one of my new years goals: say yes more!)!

The company name is pretty straight forward and leaves nothing to the imagination, as they are exactly that...easy canvas prints.  You upload a photo you want...canvased? (is that even a word?)...select the size you want, and then fork over some moola.  Pretty simple, and a great way to memorialize a favorite photo in a slightly different way than you would likely normally do.  It was fun!

I picked the 8"x10" size and uploaded one of my favorite race pictures.  Geof and I liked it so much that we even included it on the backside of our wedding invitations :)  Here's a pic of the final product:

The lighting in the living room wasn't that great this morning, but the print looks really great in person, just like the original photo but with an artistic touch to it!  I am blanking on who shot this photo originally, but it was either Kelly Gaines or Gretchen.  It's from the 2010 Rio Del Lago 100.  Geof is walking with me across No Hands Bridge around mile 40 of the course.  It was hot, hot, hot that day and when he let go and waved me on I began troubleshooting my situation, preparing to lose my cookies for the first time in a race before pulling it together and finishing up in fine fashion.  It was a fantastic day, and a great race.  This photo makes me smile so much :)

If you've got a picture you want to do something special with then I definitely recommend your checking this out.  I think Groupon and Living Social have a lot of deals for this sort of thing, too.  So keep an eye out, or hop on over to Easy Canvas Prints to see what they can do for you.

Now who ever said running isn't an art?!

Paige, out.
