So, it started off well enough.
The first cameraman was easy to spot somewhere around mile 2. I managed to look happy without looking cheesy. Form isn't too bad, kind of have a chicken wing thing going but I'd consider sharing this picture with friends.
I present, The Good.
Here is The Bad.
The picture itself isn't so bad. No real grimace, a nice stride, but I made the ultimate rookie finish line mistake... focused all my energy on stopping my watch. No smile. No attempt to look at the camera. Nope, just me, finishing the longest race of my life thus far with my only concern to make sure my watch is stopped on time.
Finally, The Ugly.
This picture is a classic everything you do not want to see in a race photo. I look like death warmed over. My eyes are shut. Every muscle in my body looks tense. I'm hunched and grimacing. My knees appear to be fused together so that I can only take little scissor steps... this my friends is one ugly race pic. The best part is I saw the photo guy, this was right before or maybe just after mile 11, I remember trying to smile for him. Maybe instead of trying to smile I should've tried to look like I was running.
Do you like your race photos? Have any super great ones that you've blown up and hung above your mantel for all to see? How 'bout some ugly ones... do share...
