I’m Getting Better!

by Alaina on October 14, 2011 · 13 comments

This cold is almost out of my system! I’m still a bit sniffly but I’m not congested anymore. I am so glad that this came and went pretty quickly. Looks like the oranges, water, tea and rest helped! Smile

Along with my health getting better, I’ve also noticed that my race pictures are improving too. Who can forget this “oh man I’m going to die it’s so humid out” picture from the Run to Remember?


Yikes. But hey, that race took a lot out of me!

Although, this next one was one of my fastest and best 5k’s and when I saw the photographer, I smiled it up!

wont lay down to cancer 

But recently, two pictures that have been taken really impressed me! This one was from the beginning of the Ronald McDonald 5k a few weeks ago. My mom thinks it belongs in Runner’s Magazine! I agree. Smile

And just yesterday, I got a notice that the pictures from the Tufts 10k were up and I was pleasantly surprised with my picture! It was during the second time we went over the Mass Ave bridge and I was dying already. When I saw the photographer, though, I smiled and gave a little wave. I look like I’m having fun! Smile

Do you like seeing race pictures? Do you usually cringe or grin? Smile with tongue out

You are too cute for words! You should be in running magazines! You make racing look so fun and easy! :)

Thanks CJ! Maybe I should enter the picture to be featured. 😛 I think you make running look easy! I love your enthusiasm and drive.

Bret takes pictures of me when I run and I ALWAYS look like I’m dying. You, on the other hand, look great!

That second picture has got to be the best race photo I’ve ever seen! How do you look so cute when you run?! The pictures from my last race are actually laughably bad!

Aw, thanks Kate. :-) For the most part of the run, I’m sure I don’t look good and I am usually not smiling. But once I see those cameras, I pull out all the stops!

Glad you are feeling better :)

Glad your better! Love your blog!

You are totes allowed to have the dying face at the Run to Remember, it was hot/humid as Hades that day haha
But you look great in your pictures! I usually appear as if I am seriously dying, or if I see the camera before I put on a tough face just as I am passing by :) then back to doom

Oh yeah, it was all a show for the cameras. I was really dying. 😛

Awesome pictures girl!! Mine are definitely cringe worthy hehehe


12 Rach October 16, 2011 at 9:10 pm

Oh wow! Those last two pics are really great!

Hi! Love your blog and your pictures are great. I am SO embarrassed by mine. I look like I am about to die the whole time. God forbid anyone should capture me at the end!
