what is your finish face look like (Read 6039 times)

     

    I think I'm trying to recreate the classic Riggs photo here. Close race for third place in a dinky local 5k race tonight. The guy on the left was right behind me all the back from the turnaround, only passing me with about 400 m to go. I passed him back yards from the line (I think that's what I'm staring at) by using a more ferocious expression.

    Goal: Age grade over 80% on a certified course.


    I'm back!

        MTA: I'm glad I'm seeing the front view and not the back!

          I sort of expected bhearn to have a pipe in his mouth.

             Oh no, the back view is divine!  Blush

            I'm back!

              I kept having to cut in front of that poor woman finishing behind me. I followed the tangents; she didn't.

                So, is there a story behind this photo, or are you just going to leave us dangling?

                I'm back!

                  The story is over in the swamp. This was Bay to Breakers. Enough said, maybe?

                    I think he just wanted to write 'dangling'

                      Yup.  A lucky few got to see the close ups.  (And there is nothing to the back of what he is wearing.)

                       

                      The important part:  He was the first bare-assed finisher at Bay to Breakers.  Woo-hoo!

                        I'm back!

                          Wow, I think I killed the thread. Like breaking the camera lens. Yes, be glad I didn't post some of the other Bay to Breakers pics.

                           

                          OK, here's the first finish photo I'm aware of where I'm sticking out my tongue. White River 50.

                              I was gurning and pointing at my son-in-law ahead who had just beaten me for the first time. Oh dear!!
