Once when I was telling a friend about a recent race, I casually mentioned the photographers strewn about the course. My friend panicked-- "why on EARTH would anyone want a photo of them in their most unflattering state of their lives?"
My thoughts exactly. I personally have never had a good race photo and have never purchased them for this matter. I do find them absolutely hilarious, however.
Let's take a walk through some of my most glamourous race photos, shall we?
In my first 5K, I clearly was rocking out this part of the race Jersey shore style. Fist pump!
During the 5/3 Riverbank Run 25K, the photographer snapped not one, but THREE photos of me licking my lips. Must have been some barbeque in the distance.
Yet another photo where I clearly thought the race finish was like being up in the club. Funky chicken, baby. (from the DXA2 5K)
This Bayshore marathon photo makes me crack up every time I look at it. Certainly the worst race photo of all time, it's clear I was nearing death here. This is at about mile 8 of the marathon. Ha!
Every once in a while, I do manage a good race photo. But only if the photographer is especially cute. (from the Detroit Half Marathon).
What's your most embarassing/hilarious race photo? Spill!
