But, even though I know that they aren't going to turn out well, I still try to ham it up a little whenever I pass a photographer. A fake smile here. A wave there. At least I'll look like I'm having fun.
So, I was expecting more of the same this morning when I got the email from fotojack that the Jet to Jetty photos were ready. Instead, what I got was shocking. Some decent photos!
This must have been early on in the race. Notice the shirt is still dry:
This one was later on around mile 5. I'm looking down the bluff at the finish line. Oh soo close but yet so far away! I actually look like I'm running - I have one foot off the ground!
And here I am with Kathleen of Write-Sizing. After I finished, I was warming down and found her on her way in. I ran with her into the finish chute. At this point she was doing great! Unlike me, she could carry on a coherent conversation.
Not too bad if I say so myself! Next time I'll have to shave. Make up! Make up!
