when bad photos happen to good people

Race. Photos. Are. The. Worst.

Seriously. The photographers always manage to capture the most unflattering angle at the most unflattering time. I've participated in countless races but can count on two hands how many decent photos I've had. And most of them came from the Newport half. I don't know how, but I was uncharacteristically photogenic during that race. Maybe because I smashed my previous PR and was totally bad ass? Yea.. probably.

The pictures that came from the marathon were.. how do I put this? Heinous. Beyond unflattering. And instead of keeping them to myself, I've decided to share them all with you. Why? Because I'm sure you could use a good laugh. Don't say I never gave ya nothin':

A little too early in the race to look so pissed.

Aaaand still looking pissy

Looking pissed AND like I'm about to puke

I look constipated. Awesome.
These are the ONLY two that aren't absolutely awful:
Can you tell that I'm crying as I cross the finish line? Yep, I am.
Do you like my sweet fanny pack?

I'm sorry but I laughed SO HARD at these...and not because they're bad, because they really aren't....but at your captions. "Constipated. Awesome." HAhaaha! Love you!

You look adorable! Stop being so hard on yourself. These are AWESOME. Love your captions.

I loved your comments. You rocked a marathon, so who cares what your pictures looked like. ;)

But I did really like the last two.

At least you are out there running. I keep saying I'm gonna run a 5k or something but never do it. So to me you look awesome!

These came out A LOT better than my recent 5K ones... I had my eyes shut in half of them and looked like I was going to vomit in the other half...heinous hahaha

Congrats on the marathon : ) I'm training for my first half in April!
