Received an email yesterday that my "race photos" from Sunday were ready for my viewing. I don't photograph well while running, but I thought that I would take at peek at the overpriced photos that I wasn't going buy anyhow.
After this fugly race photo from 2010:
|Chicago Marathon 2010|
I pretty much gave up any expectation of great action shots years ago. Running and beauty apparently just do not go together for me.
When I look at that photo above the only thing that pops into mind is "I think I can. I think I can. I think I can."
I'm also super cool where no matter how much pain I am in upon crossing the finish line, the first thought that crosses my mind will always be "must...stop...garmin...".

I also like to play ballerina as my pre-race ritual apparently.
And make cool faces at the Millennium Park Bean.
Without further ado, the randomly selected winner of the Chicago 13.1 Marathon giveaway is...
Congrats Michel! Looks like we will be taking to the Chicago 13.1 Marathon course on June 9th together! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get you in contact with the race organizers for your free entry.
Alright time to air your dirty laundry folks...
We've all got them, those fugly race photos that seem to capture the true glory of race day. Who wants to trump my Chicago Marathon 2010 fuglyness? Think you've got a real winner email me at email@example.com to be part of a fugly race photo posting.
