First, holy shit. How have I not posted since May 5th?
I really heart Amanda & Beka and their monthly link-up is the shiz, but this month’s running topic is all about the running pic. Oh girls…so much ugly is about to happen on this here blog. You see, I’m the girl that purposely puts on mascara and tinted moisturizer (with SPF, natch) the morning of a race. I’m semi-ashamed of being that girl, but wearing mascara makes me look less like a zombie and more like a really tired human. Yes, I know I’m going to sweat it all off, but it’s the thought that counts, OK?
I also make a serious effort to not wear the same race clothes twice. While this sounds super vain, I use my outfits to figure out what race it’s from, I swear. 😉
And, without further ado…the photos…
Finishing my first (& only) marathon. So much happiness & relief in one photo!
Brewers Mini 2013 – It was a little hot and I was so happy to be done.
Madison 2013 – I have a tendency to look down during every.single.run.
Oh, the Illinois Half from this year. It was such a cluster. I’m pretty sure I’m walking here.
Have you ever bought any of your race photos? Obviously, I haven’t (sorry corporate photo takers) as they’re unjustifiably expensive. Luckily for Chris and I, his mom was there at our last race and took some really great photos. This is probably my favorite running picture of all time:
My stud husband (1444) finishing his third marathon in a sub-4 time. He’s such a beast!
Do you get gussied up for races?
