Possibly the worst race photo ever...or at least the worst of me so far

Monday, January 14, 2013

Marathonfoto was having a sale so I purchased this bad picture. Judy looks great crossing the finish line with her arms up. I've got a really stupid look on my face. Oh well. Enjoy.

    Like my husband said, you look like you've been exercising, there's nothing disgusting about that - you are doing it! and THAT makes it a great picture! Looks like you are at Disney or somethin'

    Whoohoo! Congratulations on finishing the race! Sometimes those race photographers miss the enthusiastic "I made it!" moment, but I would take any "finish" photo over no photo at all...I didn't get one photo from my birthday 15k.

    This is a cool photo. I think you look great! I try to candid photos of my wife all the time. But she has a sixth sense about cameras.

I know it feels good to cross that finish line. 1/10th of a second later and you would have had a "glamour" shot. I like this one. It shows that running a race is not easy.

Thanks, Bruce

    If this is the worst, then it's not so bad. I must be the least photogenic person around! I just laugh when I see my photos. I always have one eye squintched or my mouth open or something stupid. Never fails. And don't even ask about the photos that hubby takes of me getting out of the pool at a triathlon. Good gosh. So take heart, Nat. I've seen much worse than this! LOL

    Congratulations on the finish! The photographer really didn't catch you at the best time - too funny! Hopefully the husband was there to take a photo of you finishing in a better pose? Thanks for the smile. emoticon

    You don't look stupid. Even if you did, it would be overshadowed by the fact that you did the race despite the tweaky calf. emoticon

    YAY for their being a sale. Like someone else says, it would have been better had your eyes been open and that's when the camera took pictures of you. My husband is such a prickler he would have had you cross the line again to get the right shot! emoticon But that it the marathon photographs to get in as many pictures as possible b/c they get paid per picture.

    You made it. Celebrate! Celebrate!! You would think they could have gotten a picture of you with your eyes open, though. Good sport to buy it anyway!!

    Haha, you look cute! Granted, Judy does look a little more excited! Do you have another race on the agenda?

    No such thing as a bad race photo, those couch potatos are envious. Good job on finishing the race.

    A race photo means you were there!! Great running pics are hard to come by cause, well, we're running! I like the pic and don't think it's bad at all.

    This tells me you finished the race...and, yawn, you're so ready to go BACK to the Starting Line and do it again!

I had a spur of the moment finish at my first Half (St Pete Inaugural RocknRoll) that became my signature ONLY at Half finishes. Gotta be ready for those photo ops!
