Five K Fotos

>> Tuesday, October 14, 2008

So here are some photos that Gary (president and founder of Charities Challenge) took at the race on Sunday. I thought I’d share.

Here I am half way into the race (starting my second loop), just as my side stitch was starting to rear its ugly head:


(stride looks good, hair looks horrible)

Here I am coming around the second time, hitting the finish line. Gary was motioning for me to wave. So I tried. The photo just makes me look like an awkward duck of some sort:


(stride and hair both look horrible)

Jeanne and I (with Gary on the far right) after being awarded my loaf of bread for winning:



I was asked to say a few words, so I thanked Jeanne and Gary for putting on another fun event:



So if you check my race report below, you’ll see that I didn’t do as well as I had hoped. Maybe I would have done better if I had worn my horsey undies:


Seriously, I NEED a pair of these!

Or maybe I should have been using my Wonder Sauna Hot Pants more regularly:



But quite possibly the best excuse for doing so poorly was my encounter with this squirrel at mile 2:



He made me his lady. That’s why my third mile was so slow. That’s my story, and I’m stickin’ to it.

Oh, and finally, here’s a good Columbus Day card (which was yesterday, and I only realized that after I got home from work and there was no mail in our mailbox):

I'm completely freaked out by the squirrel photo.

Thanks.

Pony undies? Those crazy Japanese!

So, it has come to this. You've conquered every other world, and now all that's left to conquer is yourself. Which, by definition, you can't do because no matter how fast you go in any given race, it can't be faster than you went.

So sad. I wouldn't want to be you ...

O, WHO AM I KIDDING?!?! I SOOOOOOO wanna BE you!! With your 5-and-a-half minute miles, and first-place finishes, and -!!

Ahem. Sorry. Did I type that last part outloud?

Anyone seen my dignity?

Great job, Steve!

Read closely, and you'll see that the "Wonder Sauna Long Hot Pants" are marketed to the "Health Watchers of America". Classic photo, classic product.

Always nice to see a little under boob sweat early in the morning. You look good homie!

The horsey underwear has got to be the best thing I've seen all day. It has REINS! And the model's facial expression - so serious! You must get some. Maybe the company will send you some for free if you promise to pimp them on your blog by wearing them in a race;)

Thank you for directing my attention to your hair.

J~Mom 9:29 AM, October 14, 2008  

Maybe air resistance from the hair?

Julianne 9:32 AM, October 14, 2008  

Is that a crop that in your first photo? ;-) Your hair looks fine in that photo!

Kathleen 9:53 AM, October 14, 2008  

the horse undies are GREAT!

Brian 12:05 PM, October 14, 2008  

I'm guessing you already bought the undies and will be wearing them in the next event.

RooBabs 12:06 PM, October 14, 2008  

I would pay good money to see you race in those horse undies (seriously, the check is in the mail as we speak).

About the sauna pants- is one size really fit all?

I think you would have done better had you been wearing your Chuck Norris action jeans!! ROFL!

Do you do an event EVERY weekend. Wild!!!

Nice gift for the race director.

Steve has a big heart. :)

The Horsey panties are a winner for sure!

Thanks for explaining why my mail didn't come yesterday even though the stock market was celebrating 1492.

What happens if the sauna suit couple wants to get busy?

Your hair looks that way because you are running SO fast. Give yourself some credit.

I am a chipolte addict too. I am okay with that one. That one doesn't give me zits. It's weird though, I decided to not put rice in my burritos because otherwise they make me too full(I know, I don't have to eat the WHOLE thing, but I do). However, the workers seem to think that I then want extra beans. Not good.

Michelle J 3:03 PM, October 14, 2008  

Hi Steve, don't worry dude both your stride and hair look fabulous!!!!

CoachLiz 5:39 PM, October 14, 2008  

Wow, those horse undies and the sauna shorts are wrong on so many levels.

Congratulations on that loaf of bread! Did you make something yummy with it like french toast or bread pudding?

anna jo 6:14 PM, October 14, 2008  

I need me some sauna pants -- stat!

Maggs 11:07 PM, October 14, 2008  

I need some horsey undies for my next race. Where do you find this stuff?

Lisie 11:40 PM, October 14, 2008  

Hey! Thanks for visiting my blog - such a honor!!! You don't know me so I'm comfortable tellng you that I had a pair of sauna pants much like those. A later version, and it was a sauna 'suit'.

So how quickly did you run the 5K; in like 3-minutes???

D10 7:08 AM, October 15, 2008  

Will you be purchasing horsey undies for your next race?!?

Ms. R 10:06 AM, October 15, 2008  

Are those sauna pants for real? Where can I get some??

Shannon 1:53 PM, October 15, 2008  

Nice photos, but was looking forward to the "speedo" shots! I guess I'll have to keep checking.

(wink wink :))
