Our 2017 Race Scrapbook





Every year we put together a "Race Scrapbook". It's a fun way to look back at the races we've done, although this year neither of us has done as many as years past. It's okay though because I feel like the ones that we did do were definitely worth it. We had a lot of fun races this year!



















Maybe someday I will actually print all these pictures out and put them in a book.  I have Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop elements but quite frankly its pretty complicated to use. Can anyone recommend a free photo editing program online that I can use that will perfectly size my photos to a 4x6 size?  -M

  1. I love seeing all these races and pictures put together like this! You both had a great year of running and racing. I am terrible about printing pictures these days- everything just stays stored on my computer!

  2. I'm not very techy, so I can't help with resizing but I do love your scrapbook creativity! Plus you've had a fun year of running!

  4. Congrats to you both on a great year! I plan on creating race scrapbooks, I found a great post on how to do it by creating an iBook - http://mealsandmiles.com/2013/02/12/my-2012-race-book/. It is time-consuming but a great way to look back on all you did!

  6. Nicely done! I love your format and know a lot of time went into making those collages! Like you, I didn't do nearly as many races as I typically do. It seems to be the theme for everyone this year. Quality over quantity. Here's to a great 2018!

  8. You did a lot of races! Somehow I don't remember you running that many, but you sure did.

    I think most of the online photo services do a good job -- at the moment names are eluding me.

  10. That's a great way to keep race memories. I don't use any program, but I'll order prints online if there's a good option.

  11. This is so neat! I miss the days when I'd do 8-10 races every year and could try new ones. Definitely one of the downsides to small town life is doing the same three races every year! I am planning to do a new destination race in 2018 though!

  12. I'd love to do a race/running scrapbook, too. The digital thing totally messed with my scrapbooking "system" and all of my pics are digital and NONE are printed. I have never attempted to go to a site to create a book online, though I hear it's easy.

  13. These are so creative. I hope you find a software. Some of them look like they could be good Christmas cards. :)

  14. Would Canva be of any help?? I've never tried to do that before but they seem to have a TON of templates and sizes and things to use! I LOVE all of your pictures though!! What a fun racing year!!

  15. That's so fabulous you have all of these memories recorded! I'm no help with editing, but I love the idea!

  16. You all did have tons of fun race memories this year. I think shutterfly does the books and it's not hard to make one hope that helps

  17. awesome job with the "scrapbook"! I think you can make prints from the Walgreens app. Persnickety Prints is another source I used back when I used to do digital scrapbooking.

  22. Fun post! I have been keeping a hardcopy scrapbook since I was a kid. I think some people think I'm crazy, but I love looking back on things and reminiscing :) I hope you find a way to print yours out.
