Today: Hot on my heels.

[tweetmeme source=”elizabethev” only_single=false]I promise to stop talking about Christmas the moment our tree comes down (which will be tomorrow, to the tune of $20 made payable to our condo association… we’re picky about pine needles in the lobby around here apparently), but what follows was just too rich to keep for myself.

I love race photos.  I just do.  I’m smiling manically in nearly every one that has ever been taken of me, despite having a broken foot towards the end of a marathon, or chafing in places I didn’t know I had during a particularly toasty 10k.  What can I say?  Any day I get to run is a good one.  Especially when Santa himself is hot on my heels.

I’m normally a rule follower, and not a rule breaker, but I figured since I am going to purchase this photo, it might be ok to share it prematurely…. maybe?  What if I apologize right above the part where I’m being explicitly told not to share it… period?  What a moral dilemma.  I suppose I will leave this up until my conscience gets the better of me.  In the meantime, note to self:  black leg warmers and white kicks is not my best look.

Ho-ho-hope you’re having a lovely Tuesday.

Also On Tap for Today:

Do you smile in your race photos, or do you prefer to be a bit more aerodynamic?

  1. I don’t know if I’ve made it into pictures in previous runs, but there is photographic evidence of the last 5k I did. Let’s just say I’m not the most photogenic person, especially after running 4.999km.

  2. nice photo lady!! I’m usually smiling in race photos too…except that god awful hot-as-balls 10k…I try not to look at those. Side note: I’d pay someone $20 to clean up the needles when we get rid of our tree…this one’s a doozy this year, it didn’t start dying or anything but man the needles fall off if you sneeze from the other room!
