      Attempting to climb the last of the numerous steep hills:

       

       

       

      Trying to "pick it up" right next to the finish chute:

       

       

      I feel like I look exceptionally young in some of these (I'm 20).  I personally was proud of the dirt and blood on me, I had many people ask if I had finished (I wiped out at the 6km mark after most of the worst hills were over so there was no way I was stopping)

        The blood helps to wash off the dirt. Nice job!

          Any finishing picture is promoted to AWESOME status if there's dirt and blood in frame.  Nice job.

            +1, and the face is good, too! Smile

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.


            uncontrollable

              I try to smile - not because I feel like it usually by that point but because I know there is a photographer! LOL. However, even with good effort - most times I look like a stroke patient!!!

              peace

                Finish of my first 1 mile race. I'm 246.

                It's only a mile, why do we all look so tired?

                 

                 

                  #173 looks like he's thinking twice about the whole running thing.
