The Pictures are In

I just looked at the pictures from the Lost Dutchman Half Marathon. I'm a bit of a ham, so whenever I see a photographer, I always run a bit harder and try to be presentable. I remember Jenny, the learnedfoot, saying that the ultimate picture is when you arn't touching the ground. I got some of those in this group of pictures.

Now, which one's should I buy? Let me know.

Thanks for the words of wisdom everyone. I did respond to some of you, so you may want to re-read the comments.

i like the 18410-340-020 one. Feet are off the ground and it looks like you aren't working to hard and that you have good form.

I can not believe how scenic the places you run are. I always thought of the southwest as just a big brown desert but the pictures you have taken have shown me that Arizona is amazing. Now I know why so many people go there to retire (the seed is now firmly planted in my mind as well). Congrats on the mileage and keep the warm pictures coming to us in frozen Wisconsin.

I like the one of you reaching up to high five the brick looking thing.
Beautiful pictures! The scenery is great!

Pat you crack me up - the photos are great. Jenny's right about the feet in the air thing, I keep thinking I should try that some time. How did you do it?

Pat said...

Phil - It's not as high a jump as it looks. Trick photography.

jenny - thats the wall at mile 23 for the marathoners and mile 10 for the half. It was at the top of a steep, but short hill.

pika - I'm a ham. I just speedied up when I saw a camera. That's my 8 min. pace form. But, I can only hold that pace for about 2 minutes.

Java -I am doing the Valley of Gold half on the 18th. It'll be my third half this year. I am going down on Saturday to the expo and to get my race packet. Returning on Sunday. If you want to start the race together like we did at the New Times, call me. You can find my number on the real estate link on my homepage.

Ok, I read this. Maybe we can all meet up at the expo. I am soooo darn excited! A little change from the 5k when I was so nervous I had to ask you about the race packets, remember?
