This is what it looks like to finish a race drunk

The Wine Country Run official pics are already available from Zoom Photo. (Still no sign of photos OR results from the Mud Run a week earlier... *grumble grumble*).

I have to say these are some of the best finish line pics ever! (Unfortunately one of our friends got cut out.)

We tried to do a synchronized jump with fist pump action, but as you can see we were far from synchronized. Here we are, all three of us in a different stage of jumping.



I look downright goofy in this one.




In other news, today was one of those very rare occasions where I got out of bed early enough to run. I knew I wouldn't have time after work because I was headed downtown for dinner with friends (and also had the opportunity to use our new Scramble Intersection at Yonge and Dundas Square for the first time!) so it had to be done. It was actually pretty nice getting out there and enjoying a peaceful, quiet run. It was just a little 5K at recovery pace, but I hope to incorporate more (and longer) morning runs now that summer is here. Time to channel my inner Aron!

Those are great photos! So rarely do I have the presence of mind to do anything memorable at the finish line-- you all look happy and unusually relaxed. :)

I love the race photos. I actually laughed out loud when I read the post title and saw the photo simultaneously! Great job on the morning run!

littlesack said...

BAHAHAH!
that pic reminds of one I have of myself from a dance recital when i was about 5. its me and the two girls on either side of me. and we are all looking at each other, and all in different stages of doing the same move. too funny!

Marky Mark said...

You finished WAY more relazed than I did! I couldn't figure out how to save the photo off their site before buying it--will try again.

Vickie said...

That sounds like my kind of race! Actually, I've had beer many times in races and it really works as an energy drink more than anything else. I've not tried wine yet.
