Smile! Unattractive Brightroom Photos

I don't think I've ever had one attractive race photo. Brightroom either gets me really far away (sometimes thankfully) like on Sat:

...where I am definitely stopping a few steps before the finish line. Yeah, it was that painful.

Or look like a hot mess:
["Mommy, help! This is too far!"]

Or look like I'm barely moving, which is somewhat disturbing to me:
[Shortest Stride EVER! Yay! I win something!]

I mean, it appears as if one foot IS marginally moving in front of the other....maybe by 5 cm.

I have found ONE cool photo...both of my feet are off the ground.
[White girl has mad ups.]

But, mostly, the Brightroom photos AREN'T keepers.

On that note, I'll leave you with what Courtney told me at around the 5K marker on Sat (she ran the first 5K with me).
"Meggie, I am not running faster, you are running slower." -CLM

In my head, I was laughing, but I couldn't waste my precious lung reserve on that.

On Saturday, I will be 3/4 of a doctor. I hope this doesn't scare anyone...


  1. I tried to do a jumping over the finish line shot with a friend in my last race. It was great - of me - but the camera caught someone else right in front of her!

  2. I know what you mean about bad Brightroom pics. I feel I always have a funny look on my face. But that one with BOTH feet off the ground almost makes up for all the other pics, right? Bonus: The guy behind you is struggling to keep up with you, and you look like you're not exerting much effort to stay ahead of him.

  3. I'm impressed you put these up on the web. I automatically delete any email that contains race photos of me.

  4. Hahaha I just looked at my Mini 10k photos too and wow, Brightroom really does have a talent for capturing those fine moments of agony.
