Official Photos From My Recent 5000

>> Thursday, December 08, 2011

If you're here for the giveaway, scroll down to yesterday's post to enter! Thanks!

Gary put up ALL of his photos from the track meet on Sunday. (Here's the link to his album.) Here are some of me at work in the 5000:

At the gun.

Jumping into 3rd / 4th with Melissa (behind the 2 teens).

Finishing the first of 25 laps.

In my race report from Monday, I noted that Melissa and I just sort of "grunted" at each other after the first lap as if to say "this is too slow of a pace - we need to pick it up." Here we are at that point, and you can see we're just sort of looking in each other's direction ready to make our move on the boys in front of us:

In the lead after 1000 meters (5 laps).
My 1 quad looks STRONG here. Dear quads: please always look like this.

A lap later, about to be passed.

H.u.r.t.i.n.g. with about a mile left.
Passing race buddy Tom (in the gray shorts).

I stayed here in 4th for the rest of the race.
This was one of the many times Paul looked over his shoulder
and yelled at me to get up there with him - Paul's awesome!

Trying to give it my all with 3 laps left (with Lydia right in front of me).
Also, sweet ass shot of the "bowl full of sunshine" shorts. ;)

Paul "flying" to a win with Bailey and Melissa right on his tail!

Working my way to the finish in 4th.

Sweet awkward stopping-my-watch photo.

I warmed-down a bit, and then I hung out and cheered. You can see Henry and I to the far right of this photo as Teresa runs the 800 in the white hat:

Apparently impressed by someone's 800 time! (WHAT am I doing here?!)

More cheering with Henry. That's Chris in front of me,
and Pharmie behind me in all the pink. (She's cute in pink.)

Chatting with the Hulls while giving Henry a bottle
as the "1500 Race Walk" was taking place.

When you look at it - I mean REALLY look at it - that last photo is kinda strange. His expression, the fact that he's walking, Erik relaxing with no shoes, Pharmie seemingly smiling to herself... weird.

Those are great pics! The last one is really strange. The runner/walker looks creepy!

Wow. Let me just say that it's been a while and I never thought I would see more photos of the "Bowl Full O' Sunshine" shorts!
