We all love to hate them, Seems like the photographer is really good at catching me with both feet on the ground. Like I'm walking. Every time.
This girl is crossing the finish line of a half marathon. See that smile? That's because she didn't race it. She just ran at a leisurely pace. Happy and strong this girl.
Ignore the heel strike please. Focus on those scary guns. Booyah!
This girl had just crossed the finish line of her first ultra. Good job photog. See that smile? Notice the wet paper towels stuffed in her shirt? I think there are ice cubes in her bra too. It was really hot that day. In February.
She sure was happy though!
But mostly she was just glad to be done. She really wanted some chocolate milk.
Every now and then the photog will snap a real winner. This my friends is what hauling @ss looks like.
So it ain't pretty but it sure felt good. Well, actually it hurt. A lot. 5Ks always do. If you are doing it right. But that my friends, is the pained look of a shiny new PR. By over 2 minutes. Guess all that distance training made me a stronger runner, not a slower runner. Nice to know!
I came in 4th in my AG last year and 4th again this year at Run Proud for Dessert. (a race benefiting a great cause and an amazing women!) Missed the girl in front of me by 8 seconds. Like riding a bull. Still pretty pleased. Even if I look like death in the photo!
Do you ever buy race photos?
