Photo Friday: Bad Race pictures

I dug into my old race pictures and found some really bad ones!  I seem to have perfected my "death face" over the years!  Enjoy!

Those are awesome! Seriously...is it something that they teach those photogs to wait for the perfect non-moments to click the camera! I've got a couple handfuls of pics like that too!!! :)

It isn't really a race until you get the bad race photos back. :D

I'll be making bad faces at the Boilermaker this year.

Those are great! Thanks for sharing. I love "bad" race pics as much as the good ones.

You know what? You NEVER have a double chin in them!! My worst one ever could have been awesome if I didn't look like I had 12 chins. Why do they have to be on the ground looking UP all the time??

Sometimes I wonder if there's contest for "how to get the most unflattering race picture" amongst them. But seriously- they're not that bad!

Molly said...

Hee Hee, you look very focused!

Fun post! I tried smiling for the cameras at my last race and didn't get a single on course photo! I think they wait for the death faces!

Chelsea said...

Not allllll of those are totally horrible. The first one is pretty funny, though. How do they manage to get you at just the right (wrong)second? My race pictures never turn out either.

Lol -- I think almost every race picture I get is a "bad" one. But sometimes I just don't feel like smiling at the photog when I'm huffing and puffing and sweating. And sometimes I just don't see them.
