It shouldn't look this painful


I am going to go with stronger, yes it is making me stronger. I should not look this bad at the end of a 5K, but for me I was pushing with every last ounce I had and it shows.  I typically try to give a smile to the camera, but at this point all I could think was don't stop, keep going, you are almost there. Don't stop...go, go, go.




Oh and why the heck are race photo's so pricey. I have been thinking of making a race book of photo's to help track my progress, but I think I would go broke.

  1. It's totally making you stronger.

    Also, I had no idea there might be race photos for a 5k. Now I have to worry about my outfit, because I am vain.

    PS- you even LOOK strong!

  2. Book of photos = blog. Much cheaper. I think you look strong too, especially in the first picture.

  3. I agree, you look very strong in both these photos. Someone fighting to push themselves doesn't smile and try to appear as though it's easy!

  5. That first photo is totally you being strong and awesome - look at you!!! You should look like that at the end of a 5k. You look like a woman who is taking what she has earned. You go girl! The 2nd one shows the inner strength - it's beautiful. It's impressive!!!! Such a great role model for your kids and for other women who run - nice!!!

  7. Those photos are great, you look strong and like you're giving it everything you've got! :) I've never taken a really good photo when running (I'm not sure it's possible if you're trying your hardest) and definitely not one I'm prepared to pay race photo prices for! Btw I'm a new follower, I blog about running n things at www.shushkat.blogspot.com Please pop by, take a look n follow if you like it... I'd appreciate any advice n comments you could share :)

  8. Definitely making your stronger but sometimes it's hard to tell :)

    You look totally focused in the photos. Love it! I've ordered a few race photos only because I rarely take a decent race photo. I'm sure I smile during a race but they never actually capture it!
