Home stretch

The event photographer captured this highly unflattering pic as I approached the finish line of Friday's 10-Miler.



We're also in the home stretch of 2008 and I'm so close to my goal of 1000 miles I can taste it. I'll check back in tomorrow to report on that.

I don't think it's unflattering. You're clearly working hard for that finish, and that's never unflattering!

You definately look like you are putting forth a lot of effort. Nothing wrong with that!

Can't wait to hear your report tomorrow...

I think the picture is perfect - shows that you are definitely busting your butt to get to the finish. Have fun getting in those last miles to reach your goal - almost there!

It's great that the photographer found you-that's part of the post-race ritual-checking to see if your pic was taken.

Good luck hitting tje Big 1K. (Hopefully unlike me you didn't gain 10 pounds in doing so!)

Melanie said...

that's a great pic! And Marci's right, you're kickin' butt, and it expresses your emotion well! :) Happy New Year!

Unflattering??? This is awesome. This tells such a great story. This shows you persevering to accomplish your goals. I would blow this up to a poster size and put it on your wall. Congrats!

I don't see how that is unflattering. It's just showing your drive and determination.

please this is not unflattering! you can tell you are really pushing hard to get to the finish line. and at least you aren't invisible to the photographers like i always seem to be.
