              rather be sprinting

                I just found the worst one ever (from 800m race at the track this summer):

                 

                 

                Mm, attractive.  The hair, I cannot explain. I was simply moving so fast it escaped its constraints.

                      My best finish photo yet.  Was feeling really good at the end of my last half marathon and really put the jets on and passed a guy.

                       

                      Usually on these pictures there is some random dude standing in the background or the background is a cotton field or something but this one has a nice lake in the background even.

                       

                      It looks like I'm actually running fast and I don't look fat!

                       

                      For sure going to give a big thank you to the lady that takes these at all of our local club races as a volunteer.

                          Well, what little hair I still have left is messed up.  Little bit of a rooster tail.  It blends in a little with the trees on the cliff in the background though.

                            I've been perusing these forums for a some time now, but this is my first contribution. "Long time lurker, first time poster" would be an apt description. I figured this is a good place to start: with a visual introduction. Hello!

                             

                            Some folks have mastered the art of making running look easy. I ain't one of 'em. By the end of a race, I always look like I'm in dire straits. Exhibit A:

                              I managed to alarm one of the bystanders even with this one.
