Jessie- I was wondering if you use a photo editing app or software for the pictures you post on your blog? Can you share what you do to prep photos before posting them? Thanks!
Jessie Benson says
hi Katie! I use picmonkey: http://www.picmonkey.com
It’s free or you can upgrade for some extras (I did- its cheap if I remember). It’s great for resizing pictures, adding text, or adding filters. I have been really happy with it so far. Let me know if you have any other questions!
Have you thought about attending the Mankato Marathon in Mankato MN? I see you have already raced numerous times in Minnesota, but I thought I would let you know about this marathon in case you were interested!
Hi Jessie- Your recap of the Tokyo Marathon is awesome! I was accepted as a One to One runner for the 2019 race (it will be my fifth star). I’m an experienced runner but I am nervous about the weather and the long flight (jet lag, time zone change, etc). If I wear lots of layers to the start, do they have donation bids like in the USA when you want to shed your clothing just before the race starts? Or is it ok to throw your sweatshirt along the course?
Also, regarding traveling, what day did you come in prior to the race? I was planning on arriving from Texas the Thursday prior (I have two kiddos and I’ll be traveling though with just my dad). Any suggestions for when best to come in?
Thanks! As you can tell, I’m a little nervous about this race for some reason, especially the weather.
