Let's just say that these are "the best of the worst" race photos taken in 2011. Let me also add that I rarely feel that any of my race photos are purchase worthy. For some reason, I am totally and completely oblivious of the race photographer until the very last second and by then, they've already captured me. At my worst. Not that it matters, because even when I do see them and try to smile or give a thumbs up to the camera, I managed to look utterly ridiculous - I am slouching -or- I look as if I am walking -or- even worse, I look as if I'm standing still -or- my face is bright red. You get the idea.
So, here are some lovely race pics in all their glory...
|This is from the Livestrong Austin 1/2 Marathon in February. It was warm, humid and hilly. The picture isn't horrendous, but I just love that my face is BRIGHT red. I am only smiling because I am at the finish.|
|This is me at Bridgeland in August. It was HOT and my hair looks supa HAWT in it's Predator dreadlock look. Seriously, it's not long enough for a ponytail, but not short enough to stay tame...what's a girl to do?|
|Ah yes, the NYC Marathon. Can we say hello Stevie Wonder!?!? I just called, to say, I love you.......Oh, and there's that flappy left hand again, not sure what's up with that. Maybe it's trying to play the piano?|
And these aren't even my worst photos...these aren't from 2011, but I've noticed that some of the worst are pics are those taken when I am coming out of the water.
|This is my 1st season of triathlons in 2009 and I just have that "Thank you baby Jesus, I can't believe I survived that swim! Geeze, it seemed so much longer than 300 yds! Hallelujah, I didn't die!" look on my face.|
|This is me coming out of the water at the 2010 Trigirl Sprint Triathlon. Again, I have a look of relief that I am still alive, but this time I closed my eyes. You know, to add to the challenge.|
