So I thought I would provide you all with a good laugh. Bad pictures are great. Bad racing pictures are fantabulous!
I ran the Shamrock Shuffle 8k a couple of weeks ago. By the looks of these pictures, I ran really hard, struggled up the final stretch (where these photos were shot – I think), but pushed through the pain, and I probably even PR’ed.The reality is, that, yes, I PR’ed, but only for a lack of running 8k’s. Also true is that I ran the race as a recovery run and felt relaxed, enjoyed people-watching, and in my memory I wore a grin for much of the run. I also seem to remember being far more svelte and graceful than these photos indicate.
But then again, I have a very creative memory.
