I Do NOT Photograph Well at Triathlons!

>> Wednesday, August 08, 2007

The “official” photos are in from Chisago HIM last weekend. Wow, look at this one:


Apparently, I can’t keep my hands out of my pants.
Gross.


I look like a duck.


Here are a few more:





Going through all of the race photos, I found this guy. He’s gangsta - flashing gang signs:


“West side of transition, boy-ee!!
I’ll pop an electrolyte in your ass!!”
I’m not sure what else a tri-gangster would say...


OK, being those first 2 photos of me hurt my ego a little (not to mention the ego-pain from the previous post), I have some ego-boosting good news. Yesterday I finished a 10 mile run in 1:11:02! That’s 7:06 per mile! That felt good. My run is getting there. My knee is keeping up. My bike still needs a little work. Four and a half weeks and counting...

I have yet to see such a smooth, clean shaven duck.

Whew! Even though you don't like them I have to say they are soooooo much better than the photos from the last post. A duck?

I think you're looking good! You could be me and look like you have to go to the bathroom in every running pic :-/

Sweet pic of the old man, that's one bad ass homie!

I saw no duck in any of those pictures. I was glad to read that you shaved the nip-hair off though.

I think you look like....a TRIATHLETE! (And you look mighty fast...the bike pix is smokin'! You can't tell me you don't like THAT one!) :-)

Now I know why you shaved, to get more aero during your run...

Okay Now I know how to spot you at IMWI.. Just say Quack, Quack, when you go by.

Great job on the run, dang you sure you have knee problems..

hey,

your blog is on my bloglines but i'm adding it to the list of blogs i can't read in class-b/c it takes all i can not to laugh hysterically and i am sure the professors are wondering what the hell is going on with my face as i contort it trying not to smile and/or laugh.

so you have been banned to out of class reading material.

that is all.

The bike one's great and the others aren't bad at all!

Oh my! I would say your run is "getting there." Smokin' fast! I take horrible tri photos too. It's embarrassing.
