Getting my race proofs today was flipping fantastic- one of my favorite things to do is laugh at people running, so laughing at myself was fantabulous. (Side note: my autocorrect accepts fantabulous, how fantabulous is that?)

If you are like me, and think awkward running photos are the best, I hope you can enjoy some of mine- please give thanks to the guest star of the photos, the lady in orange. She was in nearly all of my pictures. Oh, and John. He’s there too. And the weird scribble letters that say something that I’m just going to pretend I don’t see.

Also, we are that lame. We seriously did run through the finish line like that. And to answer the question you’re thinking- I have no idea why I was throwing up my hand as I ran through- I can only imagine I was saying, Hayyy, I’m here!




Something I learned from these pictures- I imagined in my head that I looked much more heinous while running… Like a person gasping and struggling for air. Instead, I’m eerily smily. I also learned that John just can’t take a good picture. Even running.

Does anyone buy these? If so, where do you hang them… Or are these gifts you give for Mother’s Day. Hey mom, I assume you’re so proud of me that you are definitely going to want to immortalize my 6 mile accomplishment forever. Please hang these photos over our cremated cat.. Which, p.s., is the perfect spot in our house for these pictures.

I wonder if the lady in orange is going to buy these- then she can remember me forever.

  1. Hahaha! Your last paragraph killed me. I think you look so happy in them that they came out great! My friends secretly bought some of mine from last year (my first year running/racing) and gave me three of them in a frame for Christmas. My office/guest room has been recently re-painted and we are turning it into an office/guest room/running room. My medal holder is up on the wall, plus I’m gonna hang those pictures and try to buy 3 more from this year, etc. It’s my little space in the house where all my running/OCR stuff will now live and I love it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I need an extra room- then I can create the shrine… Maybe hang up my college degrees, a few race medals, my “most likely to be mistaken for a student” superlative I won this year.

  2. You actually look GREAT in all these pictures though you waving at the end had me laughing out loud. Oh and just so you know, I’m not going to hang these photos over Zeus’ remains. That just doesn’t seem right:)

  3. (A) I can’t believe you are smiling in all of the pics!! You might want to buy 1 or 2. I don’t think I have ever seen that before. hahaha (B) You gotta buy at least one since they are all pretty great. I bought a pic from my marathon race and put it in a picture frame that sits on my dresser to inspire myself to do more races.

    • I never thought of it like that! Isn’t there a running meme: ridiculously good looking guy. The guy is just grinning ear to ear. Plus, he is RIDICULOUSLY goodlooking. Swoon.

      Good thinking about using the pictures for future inspiration- I’m just not sure I ever want to see a picture of me running again ๐Ÿ˜‰ ill leave it for my bloggy family to look at!

      • Yeah, I remember that dude. A lot of people joked that they could see me doing that – however, I reminded them that they have never seen me run – I don’t smile. hahaha But you on the other hand, you could give him a run for his money!! hahaha
