Race pics - The 'The world should thank me for not pursuing a career in modelling' post

Some race pictures from Sunday's 10 miler. Don't laugh at me, just laugh with me! ;) I know I look like I was on my long run and just accidentally stumbled upon this crowd of runners that were running the same route... Next time I will race this thing!


Those pigtails...You would say I'm too old for that, wouldn't you? Must admit that it keeps all the hair out of my face. :)

Nice heel strike, babe. And watch the goofy face...

I totally kicked Rocky Wannabe's butt later on! And the race shirt I got from the good cause I was running for was about 3 sizes too big...so I look a lot fatter than I actually am. Thanks... But at least it was for a good cause.
Here I'm just trying to hide behind Rocky Wannabe. Those abs aren't too bad to look at, by the way...

Do you have a worst / best race picture? And would you ever run a race in a costume?

Those pics are great. Either you found and posed for every camera or you ran with your arm up the whole time. Which ever it was...it's commendable.

Love these photos!

Awesome. An arm up = a happy runner.

:)

The pictures are great! (I wear my hair in pigtails almost every race - funny, last weekend I did the double french braids :D )

Most of my race pictures are terrible. I'm usually looking at my watch and I am SUPER sweaty in all my pictures. I have yet to have one I would actually BUY.

I haven't had a single good race photo since 2000. Sad but true. I've had LOADS of bad ones, though!

Yesterday evening I got a call from my mother. She saw your photo on facebook (because I had commented on it) and thought it was a photo of me! She wanted to tell me how cute the photo was, and she was appalled and horrified when I told her it wasn't me. I was flattered!

I think you look great in those pictures! Way to kick Rocky's butt!

@ Quinton: Ran with my arm up most of the time. I was having a blast; I'm going to use races as a marathon pace work out more often!

Silly Girl Running said...

@ Emz: Yep, I was one happy runner! :)

@ Zoë: Thanks! That Rocky guy was just too funny!

@ Becka: Hahaha; we both get away with wearing pigtails!

Silly Girl Running said...

@ T: That's hilarious! Apparently you look like a 5 ft 9 Dutch Redhead now! ;) Still flattered? ;)

Those pigtails ROCK! And they are much better than one big ponytail flipping around, weighing your head down! Ugh. I remember those days. Pigtails all the way.

Great photos!

@ Shelly: Hahahaha! I usually wear my hair in one big ponytail, but at the moment I just have too much hair to wear that without forcing a hernia. So...Yay for pigtails and looking like a 12 year-old. ;)
