Sunburst Half-Marathon Photos . . . AKA, I really CAN look like a runner while running!


Okay, y'all. I'm feeling all kinds of super smart and savvy right now because I managed to pull my images off of the race photographer's site and post them on here, despite their best efforts to keep me from doing so. Go me! Anyway, I was shocked to learn that I almost sort of kind of look like a runner in some of my Sunburst Half-Marathon photos! I KNOW! I can't believe it either! Since I've decided it's WAY too hot outside today to run (if it's currently 93.6 degrees Fahrenheit INSIDE my apartment, I don't even want to know what is is out there in the sun!) . . . I'm going to post these photos as proof that I really truly am a runner. And don't worry, I haven't forgotten that I owe you all some Stockholm photos . . . still working on that one. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Try to stay cool!


Okay, so this is a typical Irish Cream race photo . . . it looks as though I'm dying and couldn't possibly be suffering any more than I am at the moment. In other words, I do not look at all like a runner.

Grrr! Out of my way or I'll eat you! But still, getting a little better . . .

I'm thinking this is a pretty sweet race photo . . . I almost sorta/kinda look like a runner, and the shadow on my left arm deceptively makes it appear as though I have muscle in there somewhere. YES!

Finally, this is my favorite race photo of all time, as it looks like I just missed qualifying for Boston by less than 9 minutes. Not bad! Thank you race photographers for framing this photo in such a way that the marathon clock is in there instead of the half-marathon clock!

Love the pics, Irish. You look great in the last one! Although at first I was worried that the time was your half-marathon time! I am a little slow sometimes...

Sweet photos, Irish! I'm jealous. I may run a bit faster, but definitely don't look as good as you do in any of my race pictures. Love the finishing picture too with the clock there and everything. It so looks like you were hauling some major ass on your way in! Sweet!
