Race Day Photos

I've been a runner for many years, and a triathlete for three. One thing that has tied together all of those year of athletic endeavor has been lousy race pics.

Pics from on the course, or at the finish line -- didn't matter. I've either blown the shot (looking down at my watch is a common mistake), or I recoil when I see the pic (God, I look fat in that outfit!)

Finally, after many years of disappointment, I hit the jackpot. Not one, not two, but three great pics from my most recent race. A snappy looking action shot, running from the swim to T1; a nice side view on the bike; and a cheesy, but not over the top, finish line run pic.

And I look good in red and black, too (it matches my bike!)

The pictures are awesome! (And no, you don't look fat).

I'm so jealous! Already the first race of the year. Congrats on the great improvements over last season.

Picking the right clothing - very important! Makes you feel good which adds speed.
