Marathon Pictures Or It Didn't Happen

Why do we wait so impatiently for the race day photos?  Pictures or it didn't happy, I suppose, but I also think we want to see if our outsides matched our insides, and to get an outsider's visual perspective on our internal experience. A marathon is experienced through visceral emotion and a dazed brain, but the camera eye is completely objective and without bias.

Here are some photos I very crudely lifted.  I left out those which showed my zombie stiff legs and crawl to the finish. (No pictures so it didn't happen.)

Hello! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm

If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!
