I take HORRIBLE race day photos. And I like to think that it’s not me, it’s the TMZ camera guys who are hiding out in the trees who manage to take your picture at your worst. Celebrities, I feel your pain.
For your viewing pleasure, you get to see me at my worst. I got my Harry photos in an e-mail yesterday with 4 images. 3 out of the 4 I wasn’t even in. So, this is the one professional beauty I got:
Could I be any less attractive? Seriously. What am I doing and why are my eyes closed AGAIN?! For my next race, the Sporting Like 10K, my goal is to get at least one nice professional photo of myself. This may mean I have to smile and look up the entire time. Maybe even hold my hand up as if I am waving or giving someone a high five? I will get the perfect photo during the next race. I will start that training tonight.
And just because this is Friday’s Confession, I’m about to share with you two of the worst photos from the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon. Be warned: I’m even embarrassed of these photos.
I know, They’re awful. And I look like I’m about to pass out. But let’s be honest, a race that starts at 10pm means that I should have been in bed by the time the race ended. So, it was siesta time in my mind.
On a brighter note, yesterday I ran within my goal pace and did a 5K at an average of 5:10 min/km followed by an awesome kettle bell class. My muscles are loving me from the high intensity weight workout! Kelly Ripa’s biceps- eat your heart out!
And tonight I get to learn how to use my “interval workout” option on my Garmin. Yes, I do need all the luck I can get.
I still can’t believe I just shared those race photos with you. At least I didn’t buy these photos because then I would have to tell you that these are my “bad paid for photos.” And that would be more embarrassing. Right? Maybe I’m just trying to make myself feel better. Either way, I am the worst for taking race pictures… You’re welcome!
