This week's photo challenge from Mrs MagMileRunner is: We’ve seen your ugly race pictures. But I want to see your favorite race picture! And an explanation of why. It can be ugly or pretty, solo or with a friend or group … whatever reason, as long as it’s your favorite.
My favorite race photo from during a race would be the one below from the Chicago Marathon 2011. This was obviously in Chinatown- most likely around mile 22? Even though I was struggling quite a bit during this race, I somehow managed to pull it together for this shot.
I mainly like how I look in this photo- dont mind my fanny pack! haha
I ended up with quite a large PR (about 15 minutes) in this race despite all the set backs leading up to it, as well as the challenges faced during this race. I was just thankful to run that day. Im still thinking I should order this photo...
