There is this horrid photo of me from my race on Sunday on Facebook! I’m grimacing and it looks like I’m barely moving. I wanted to think it was because I was at mile 5.5 out of 6.2. But no, I think it was more like mile 4. The even sadder thing is that I saw this photographer from far away, and worked really hard to smile. Apparently, I need to try harder.
I know I shouldn’t get wrapped up in race photos–but this one is so BAD! And I have no idea why the photographer decided specifically to post it on my running club’s FB page for the world to see. Oh well, a dash of humility never did any harm. But it still sucks.
So I needed a little pick-me-up to counteract the horrid photography. Lucky for me, a package came in todays mail!
my new sASSy running skirt! Granted, I’m not moving in it, but it did me a world of good.
My evening only got better–when I went to our club run at my LRS, there was a surprise awaiting:
No, the ladies are not the surprise. The surprise is: my bras had arrived! A few weeks ago, I attended a “Diva Night” at my LRS, and wouldn’t you know it, I won the raffle–a free Moving Comfort sports bra! Yes, I am now thinking I need to play the lottery–a gift card and now a sports bra!
For the raffle prize, I got the bra on the left (rebound racer), and then picked up an extra (the one on the right), just in case. This was a good thing–you see, I had misplaced my running bra sometime in early March, and it hasn’t turned up yet. Now that I’ve actually dropped some coin on a new one, I know the old one will reappear. Because that’s how my life works.
So, here’s to hoping that in my next race, the sports bra and sASSy skirt will lead to better photos!
