So, for those non-runners out there, let me tell you something about race photography. Every decent sized race works with a photography company and plants photographers along the course and at the finish line to capture the blood, sweat, and tears of the participants. As if that's not bad enough, they then link your photos on their website by your last name, so your running buddies (or your long lost high school friends on facebook) can type in your name and see you at your grimacing, gasping worst. It's great.
Anyway, my pictures are always awful. AWFUL. My head is always tilted back and my shoulders hunched forward (this is perfect running form, by the way) and I'm beet red, eyes half closed... seriously, a pretty picture. But this time, there's something even weirder. I have this huge, creepy smile in both the pictures they have of me, and my feet actually look like they're moving (for some reason I always look like I'm just standing there, both feet on the ground)...

We'll see if I look this happy in my full marathon race photos! :)
