Race Photos: America’s Finest City 5K Run

Posted on Aug 24, 2009 under Race | 7 Comments

I got my race photos of the America’s Finest City 5K run from last weekend (All photos). I always tell myself (before the race) to actually look at the camera and give a decent pose. But when I’m actually running in the race, smiling and posing for a camera is the LAST thing on my mind. I really don’t care about that and am focused more on how tired I am. I really need to just lighten up and just try and give a smile one time, so I’ll have a good picture to use as a profile pic or something.. I’ll have plenty more races to try and do that. There were actually more pictures of me, but these are the ‘best’ ones.

America's Finest 5K Run

You can tell that it is early on in the race by looking at how little sweat is on my shirt at the moment. Oh, and I’m also giving the thumbs up!

This would have been a good picture (very patriotic with the flag as the backdrop..) if it didn’t say ‘PROOF’ across it. And no, I’m not going to pay for it..

Nice, I’m slightly ahead of the other guy. Finished 3 spots ahead of him!

America's Finest 5K Run Finish Line

A runner who only cares about his times. You can see me stopping the time on my watch as I cross the finish line!

Half Marathon Trip Crown Medals

There was a whole table full of these medals. It’s called the Half Marathon Triple Crown. It’s for runners who have completed the following half marathons in one year: Carlsbad, La Jolla and America’s Finest City Half Marathon. My running goal for 2010!

    nice pics! race pics are so expensive – i MIGHT get one (if it’s good) from a full marathon but i can’t bring myself to spend $60 on a photo from “just” a shorter-race distance. i do tend to save a copy of the proof though, they are still cool pics. maybe you could plan a photo-shoot run and get a buddy to take pics of you on a training run? šŸ™‚

    Fun race pictures. I always look like I am about to drop. Before races I am alsway like smile if you see a camera, wave or do something cute, but it never works:)

    I always smile like a damn fool in my photos. I should probably be more focused like you!

    Congrats on your race!

    Those are good-looking race pics!

    I’m hit/miss with mine, & I always end up focusing on how my legs look like they’re collapsing inwards šŸ™‚

    Great race pics! You look strong and very focused. And good for you for beating that blue shirt guy. If for no other reason that the tooly shorts!

    At least you made it into the photos, not a bunch of partials like last time. You even look fast!

    Those Triple Crown medals look great! I got mine last year, and it is not nearly as nice as those. But do I really want to endure La Jolla Half Marathon again for those??? =P Nice blog… I’ll add your link to mine.
