Anyways, one of the ideas came from @BobHatcher2 and he actually asked what was my favourite race photo I'd ever had taken of me. It was actually a really great question. And while I can't really say I have a single favourite, I thought I'd bring up the topic for you all to think about this race season.
When you're in a well organized race, there's going to be photographers there to take your picture. You'll have action shots, finish line shots, maybe some blooper shots, etc. But right now, its important you ask yourself, what kind of race photo am I? Here are your options;
|Pippa Middleton, the Happy Racer|
|Inopportune- aka Me|
The Bomber- We all know you're out there photobomber. You're the guy who for some reason needs that extra 5 seconds once you hit the finish chute, so you break into a sprint and then throw your arms out to ruin someone else's finish line photo. I was even there that time you plowed over that kid who was running across to put the finish line back up. Dude, you've got to back off, no one likes you. Earn that extra 5 seconds at the beginning of the race, not the end, or better yet, realize that the 5 seconds don't matter because you're not in the Olympics. You've ruined thousands of Happy Racer's photo's, and you've pissed off thousands more Angry Racers. Next time you're coming down the chute, back off 5 seconds so the photographer can actually get a shot of you and the other person in the chute separately.
|Ridiculously Photogenic Guy|
Ridiculously Photogenic Guy- *Slow clap* You're kind of a happy racer, but your anonymity gives you a little more cache. Your combination of good run form and a cheerful but not obnoxious in a Glee way makes you the runner we all want to be. Ridiculously photogenic guy, we salute you.
