Race photos 101 - And this time I tried hard not to mess them up

...and yet I did.

The race photos from the Edinburgh Marathon didn't look that bad in the preview photos, but after receiving the link to download the high res photos, it's fair to say that I did manage to mess up those photos. Yet again. Okay...I didn't mess up all of them, but still... Check the evidence below. Please feel free to click on these photos and see the high res version. Might cause damage to the eyes, though. You can't say I didn't warn you.



Can you tell from my eyes that I had a migraine the night before and have still some sort of 'heavy head' thing going on up there? I'm hiding it well...I'm hiding it well...



Yep, apparently I wasn't struggling with my GU pack, but texting on my phone. Texting at mile 18/29K? Seriously? My handheld? Squeezed In my left arm pit area. Oh yeah, I'm classy like that.

The classic silly face. Patent (still) pending.


Stopping Mr Garmin at the finish line. What I should have been doing? Don't look down and smile!

The ones that didn't come out too sucky:


I just truly hope that that's a shadow thingie going on on my left upper arm... Avoid. Men. Arms...


I look happy. And that's exactly how I felt. :) And sweaty. I do look sweaty. And it does look like every bit of mascara I had on is go-one. ;)

They are good pictures! You look intense...not silly at all! I do like the one sleeve rolled up w/arm warmer down on one side, and sleeve down with arm warmer up on the other. Was the sun shining on one side? :-)

Great job again!

@ LaVonne: Well, uhm...the wind (headwinds...yikes!) came in from the right. That side was chilly. ;)

@ Heather: Thanks! :)

@ Quinton: Well, if the man himself says I look amazing...I'll take it. ;)

I ALWAYS mess up my photos too. Unless I see the camera guy taking the picture and I smile on purpose, then it's likely to be a picture of me with some sort of grimace on my face.

And it's almost a guarantee that my finisher photo will be me stopping my watch :-P

Best to wear a zip front sports bra plus size, if you do not wear a bra, Games for supporting breast ligaments damage, the site is easy to cause breast pain, and chest bigger, the higher the chance of pain.
