So I know you all think my life as a runner is glamour and gloss. I mean, you've seen a couple race photos of me and of course I've got on my best outfit and my best smile. Doesn't it look fun? And easy? And carefree? Does it make you just wish you could jump up and go run a marathon?
Well folks, I've promised you real on this blog and today that is just what you are going to get! You see, the fine folks at the Marine Corp Marathon have photographers stationed every 5 feet or so along the course. There are ENDLESS opportunities to find out exactly what you looked like at every minute of the race. I try real, real, real (read that in your best hick accent) to straighten up and look purty every time I see a paparazzi ready to snap a shot. I was pretty successful during my first marathon. I was feeling good and having fun. Plus, as noted, I knew when they were coming so I could pull out one of these:
|Yes, its a proof. No way am I spending $ to buy pictures of myself running.|
|Seriously - don't you want to run out right now and register for a race? What I love is #34840 also has this picture on his race photos. If I was him this picture of me would be all over facebook so everyone could laugh at it.|
|Or here. I think I'm looking at a mile marker in disgusted disbelief. And check out those headlights. Gross!|
And the piece de resistance ...
|Doesn't that look like I'm having fun!?!?!|
Now that I have provided you with your laugh for today (and frankly I'm tapped out) here is a link to a site that really made me laugh
