Do you ever wonder what you look like when you run? When you are seriously in the zone and on a mission?
Most of the race pictures I have in my possession, Fiancé has taken for me. When I see him during a race, I am all smiles and excited to see him, and those emotions usually show through in the pictures.
Apparently I wasn’t putting my best race face forward when Brightroom was taking pictures during the New York Marathon this past weekend, because my race pictures are not looking so hot.
Here are the many faces and emotions of me running the New York Marathon:
Apparently I was sad running the race, or at least that is what I looked like in a few of the pictures.
I looked sad and slightly in pain.
And a tad serious
But also a little confused.
And tired. Very tired.
Maybe I wanted to take a nap. Is that why my eyes are closed?
Here I am looking like I smell something weird.
Am I smiling or gritting my teeth? Maybe doing a bit of both.
Here, I do not look like I am #1, but apparently that is what I was going for.
(Mental Note – Don’t try to look cute 26 miles into a race, it won’t turn out good for anyone involved!)
Halfway through the race – Can you spot me in the crowd?? See, I told you it was packed with people!
Here we go! We found a smile and an appropriate gesture!
Marathon Picture Win! Here I look like I am having fun – Wouldn’t it have been way cooler if the Manhattan Skyline was in the background. That would have been awesome.
26.2 miles in 4:15:03! Woop Woop!
Crossing the finish line!
Don’t I look happy to be finished?? After 4 hours of running, who wouldn’t be happy to cross the finish line!?
Don’t think I will be purchasing any of my NYC Official Race Photos. It’s always sad when nothing turns out because when you have an badass race photo, it’s pretty awesome.
Since I just shared with you all my lovely race photos, now I want to see yours!
Do you have any bad race face photos? If you do, and want to share them with the world, email me your worst race face picture and I will post them on the blog! We can all have a good laugh at the silly faces we make when we run!
Email them to Leslie at andherlittledogtoo @ gmail .com
Share your race face with the blogworld! 🙂
In other news, here are some awesome aerial pictures of the marathon from above. Next year I want to watch the race from a helicopter! How fun would that be?! It would be awesome to see all the little people go flying by, taking over streets and bridges!
It’s pretty amazing how many people ran the small streets of New York this past weekend. Word on the street is there were 2 million spectators too! Wowzers!
It was a beautiful day for a marathon though!
