Running in the rain

I can now say that I have run a race in the rain. This past Sunday I ran the Forest City Road Race 1/2 Marathon. I struggled with a side stitch and heel pain..... the race kinda sucked. On the positive side, I know that I will be a stronger runner for it.

It was my second worse half marathon time (chip: 2:00:49)....... disappointing. Pfffft.


Not the greatest photos.... unfortunately, these are the best of the bunch. I don't know that I have ever liked a snapshot that has been taken by race photographers.







I wonder if they do "Glamour Shot" race photos? Hmmmmmmmmm.................


Not like this......



Something more like this.




Have you ever liked a race photo?

Gotta run.

You look great!!! Love your outfit - are those knee sox?

They are knee socks... but they are compression knee socks (meaning it's socially acceptable to be wearing them after the age of 12).

Racing in the rain is not my idea of ideal race conditions either. But you toughed it out! Waynto go!!!
Yeah, race photos are usually awful for me. My first ultra tho, they got some good ones at the finish line. I'm smiling ear to ear! As much as I enjoy running, that was def my best running moment ever. Guess it showed on my face!
