SD RnR Marathon Race Photos

Posted on Jun 13, 2010 under Race | 1 Comment

Race pictures were up for the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon a lot faster than I expected. I would have thought that sorting through pictures of 30K+ runners would have been very time consuming. It wasn’t until reading a few other race reports that I realized how boring MY race photos are (and have been). If you think about it, photographers will take pictures of you while running your race. But to be honest, why do you really want to see yourself running every race? I mean, the only thing that changes is what you wear (although I usually wear the same outfit) and the expression on your face, depending on where you are in the race and how difficult it is. The other race reports I read had pictures of the scenery and race atmostphere, which is something I would like to remember the most from each of my races. Not what I wore and how tired I looked. I SO made everybody want to see these pictures now, right?

Can’t really say anything special about these pictures. They look exactly the same, but with me at a different position in the picture! šŸ™‚ I like the starting line photos just to see how far back it went, which is still amazing to me. I really like how the post-race picture turned out. I think I tried to smile when I took it after my last half marathon, but I was drenched in sweat and it just looked weird. I’m very tempted to go out and buy the picture of me and the starting line (and time and race name). Considering it was my first full, I may as well pull the trigger, we’ll see!

I am still working on (literally and metaphorically) my “what’s next” post, which will go into what I plan to do now after completing my first marathon. Obviously, if I knew, I would have said it by now, but I’m still thinking things through..
