Race Pictures!

Sorry, couldn’t think of a catchy title.

The reason this is exciting for me is because I had zero recognizable pictures from my two fall half marathons in Philadelphia.  While I have only paid for one race picture ever (from my first half marathon), race pictures are usually good for a laugh.

I’ll cut to the chase.

This was right before we began the trail portion.  I look strangely pleased.  Or in La-La Land.

Here we have the beginning of the trail, and I seem to have found something amusing:


After the mile-long descent which came after the forever-uphill, I summoned my ability to levitate:


Approaching finish!  My pasty flesh reveals I am not a native Californian.

While I don’t recall switching my water bottle from my right hand to my left hand, I can only assume it was to free up my right hand to stop my Garmin a second later.

And quite possibly the best picture I came across today (or this month):

Horses benefit from compression during recovery too.


  1. Why can't they make those things for humans? I'm always telling my husband that a full body compression suit would be awesome.

    Your pics are good! Mine always look terrible.

  2. Thanks, I did omit some including one where my eyes are closed and I'm gasping for air

  3. Great pictures!! Looks like a lot of fun - hope you are enjoying the west coast!

  4. That horse picture is literally the best thing I've seen all day. :)

    Those race pictures are awesome, you look so hardcore!

  5. How did you manage to get all good pictures from a race? You look fantastic! How the hell did they get that thing on the horse??

  6. You look like a lot of Californian's with that sexy pale. We aren't all hollywood idiots who sit on the beach or in the tanning bed ;)

    Great pics anyway, and from what I know about compression wear, that horse paid $2,000 minimum for that thing.
