Never Before Seen Race Photos

I couldn’t sleep tonight so I had a great idea: to look up race photos from past races. I was amazed at how many I found, even from races years ago! Many of these pictures I had never seen before (somehow I overlooked the email saying there were photos) and some of them I hadn’t seen in a long, long time. Some are hideously ugly. And I obviously love to make a peace sign while running (my left hand/arm also turns into a strange t-rex arm sometimes, not sure why) 😉 There were many races I looked up where the pictures had expired, so that was a bummer. But I’m ecstatic at the amount I was able to find.  Here they are in order earlier to most recent race

Now that you’ve seen some of my embarrassing photos you should go out and search the web for some of yours (I’m sure there are pics of you out there that you forgot of!).

I noticed that I’m doing one of the following in my pics: making a peace sign, holding a water bottle, or having a strange t-rex hand/arm motion going on. Do you have any unique features that show up on your race pics?
