Köln Half Marathon Race Pics or 'How that guy got chicked'

Last weekend's Half Marathon Race Pics are online. Yay! Since I ran that Half with a knee injury that was pretty much killing me, I did not have high expectations. But, so it turns out, the pics aren't that bad at all. I've looked worse. ;)


Me running through Köln City. Apparently I noticed the photographer, 'cause what you see here is a pathetic attempt of a smile.


About 1K left to go. I'm trying to look like I'm (i) in no pain at all, and (ii) enjoying the race.


A couple of 100 meters before the finish line. Do you spot the guy in the navy shirt and the black shorts? Remember his face for a second...

...because he's about to be chicked!


Me kicking it to the finish line. How the heck did I do that with that right knee killing me? That poor guy didn't see the cheetah skirt coming. ;)

Bonus: the worst race pic from the Köln Half Marathon:

Look at those quads. Yikes! Not exactly what you call soft and feminine... At least now I know why the whole flunning thing doesn't work for me; my guads look like something that belongs to a monster...

Ain't it better to post my comments in English? That guy has no idea what hit him! :)) Was it a leopard, was it the the quadmonster or the about-to-run-the-NYCM chick?

@ Q: LOL! Thanks! ;) As soon as a race starts I'm in 'who you're looking at?' mode...hence the low hat. ;)
