Being part of the Lopers Club has its perks. Aside from the great support we get on Sundays, the Lopers also provide some cool pictures. For each big race where lots of Lopers participate in, a photographer takes pictures for us and charges us five bucks per shot. It beats paying 15 or 20 per shot from the race photographers.
On Sunday, I picked up a shot from Surf City 2011 that I had no idea was even taken of me.
Um... yeah, I'm flying through this part of the race. I was feeling so strong here... I mean, can't you tell?
Actually, this is the definition of slogging. Slogging is where you're kind of moving forward but it's not fast, it's not smooth and it's definitely not pretty.
This picture also reminded me of something else. For some reason, I always seem to run with my mouth agape. Not sure why, but most pictures of me when I'm running have me with my mouth open. I remember early last year, I mentioned this and said that, coupled with my pink shirt, I looked like a fish, like a pink fish. A reader forwarded me a picture and...
The return of the pink fish.
What do you think? Is there a resemblance? And what about that Surf City picture? Brutal, huh?
