Pudgy Daddy vs Puff Daddy

Epic battle pitting Crazy Unkel Stephen against crowd favourite celeb marathoner Puff Daddy.
"Sean (Diddy) Combs ran the ING NYC Marathon in 2003 with a time of 4:14:54. In the process, he raised about $2 million for NYC schools."
Oprah didn't stand a chance.

Crazy Unkel Stephen team apparel by Josh Phillippe at Organik Graphyx (+1.613.569.5100, 9 Florence St., Ottawa, ON, Canada).
Josh did a fantastic job designing the team crest in real time, maintaining deep concentration despite me looking over his shoulder and a colleague snoring loudly on the couch behind him the whole time... :-)
He didn't charge me enough for his efforts, so consider this post 'promotional consideration'.

I snapped this while setting up for another shot. The other shot was boring, but I find this one magic. Maybe it's the Mill Street Stock Ale gleaming in the foreground...

Students break down marathon into bite sized pieces

The Nortel Kids Marathon - a kilometer a day, leading up to running the last 1.9 km of the Ottawa Marathon amidst the sweaty crowds.

CBC Radio Ottawa did a feature on the marathon and covered the class's participation. You'll understand why I'm posting about it if you listen.
