Early on in the race. Feet barely hitting the ground, and BIG smiles. FYI I totally cheese at the camera's and usually give a wave. I have always LOVED getting my picture taken.
Later in the race...Still the wave, smile and CRAZY hair. FYI I did not find any photos of Sunglasses Calf Compression Socks guy...guess he was too grumpy for the photographers...DELETE DELETE
Ever wonder what the Female Winner looks like?? Well there she is...good thing the photographer had a FAST camera or he would have missed her. The 35 year old orange shirted fuzzy pony-tail wonder finished in 34:46.6 which is 5:36 pace. Many of her running club peeps finished in the front of the pack, there were some SPEEDY people.
The Little Red runner I TRIED to catch... Well here she is. She finished before me with a time of 45:35.9. I was right she was in my age group, Little Red is 35. Next time I will be on the hunt to pick some women off, like the guys do at the end..LOL...
And nipping on my heals with a time of 46:37 was this 65 year old beauty!! Holy WOW!! AMAZING!! I hope and pray that I will be hitting fast paces at that age. Once I was in my stride I did not get passed by any women, I finished 20 out of 156....My goal was top 20, so not too shabby!!
This girl and I could be friends. First off, she has my race number hello #333!! Second, she is totally matching from head to toe ( I am a matchy matchy freak). And third, look at that enthusiasm, LOVE IT!! I think I may try the double thumbs up in my next race, may be a little better than the one armed wave.
Do you think she bought this picture?? I am 100% confused why you would do a thumbs down? Anyone who has ever used this pose please explain as I am baffled. You CAN fake it for the camera for a few seconds...or just run for goodness sake.
And the winner of the Cutest Couple!! This picture just makes me smile. I know that Muscle Man and I have many races together in the future.. I may not give him the bunny ears, but I hope that we look this happy.
I don't know these people...but one thing we all have in common is that we were out there running toward the Finish together...
How will you look in your next race photo??
Careful you never know where that photo may end up..
