    If I hadn't already promised to run the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon in 2013, I'd sign up for Grand Rapids.  I've heard so many good things.

          Blue Runner- This was the OKC HM that I spent telling myself 'I'm not gonna puke, not gonna puke' the entire race. I ate some kind of chicken pasta dish the evening before and it started haunting me about midnight. I tried to look happy when I saw a camera, but there were a few pictures that my true feelings were on display. I did NOT buy those.

          Super B****

            That definitely does happen, I got this picture below in a 10k last March - it might seem like I'm staring down the cameraman, but I don't even remember the guy being there!!

             

             

            You know, for someone who claims to be allergic to photographers... Tongue


            Peace out!

                He's right, coolrunning. You look the same in both pictures. You're pretty adorable when you're running and smiling. :-)

                  I'll have official photos later, but here's a finish line pic Dh snapped yesterday.  This is what a person looks like who has vomited/dry heaved the last 6.1 of a HM.

                  Bless your heart.

                        Just Keep "Tri" ing

                          I don't buy many races photos because hubby and I race a lot and it's expensive enough just for two people

                          to enter so many race, so most of my race photos are "after race" or "lifted" from a website.

                           

                          These are all from 2012, I turn 51 3 weeks from tomorrow. I hope it's as good a running year as I had

                          this year. I also think I should call this my year of "I've been everywhere man"......lots of miles put in running,

                          racing and traveling to races in 2012.

                           

                          Post race in January in Bermuda for my 50th bday. This was after the 10k, the day before the full.

                          Yes I am almost always talking.

                           

                          Taken by son at the start of the Ottawa half marathon in May. We were going there to visit our son so we

                          planned our trip around the marahton. IIn case you couldn't guess, that's me in the middle, in pink yet again.

                           

                          This is me finishing the Maine Marathon in Portland Maine, Sept 30th, marathon #5 and a PR at age 50. (4:20)

                           

                          This is me at a half marathon 3 weeks later at home in Canada,  on Oct 21st, another PR race (1:57), with

                          hubby for our traditional post race photo.

                            I love looking at all these pics.  You guys look great!

                            At the Baltimore HM in October.  I like this one because it looks like the cute girl is smiling at me even though I'm sure she was looking at someone else. But yeah, she digs me.

                              I'm not one who consciously tries to chick male runners (I'm more after the females in my AG), but when I happen to pass a man and it is captured on camera, I sort of like it. :-)  (but jeeze, the more I run, the more my arms are becoming puny things and my legs are these large tree trunks Surprised Ewww...)

                                My all time favorite photo.  About 10 miles into the Chicago Half.  If you let the shadow in the wet pavement play with your head it looks like a big time floater.  Smile
