Here's a few of mine -
My first real race - Gasparilla Half 2012. I remember exactly how I couldn't really feel my legs any more and I couldn't believe I'd run over 13 miles (for the first time)! I pretty much had deer in the headlight look the last 3 miles.
Two weeks later, I thought a 10k was a good idea - Here is what I knew as pain back in March of 2012... still not a terrible pic... as a new runner, I don't recommend running a second race so soon after your first.
Most races, a few miles in - I'm feeling awesome and I can still smile and look like I'm having a good time.... especially when I'm passing people on a turn around and I know they are pissed...

And then as my training progressed and so did I as a runner, I slowly began to learn what a real pain face is. There are now finish lines where I feel like I'm going to die or pee on myself and my fun face turns to f#$*! face.

For someone who "claims" to not like pink, I apparently wear it a lot.
Finally - Rock N Roll St Pete February 2013 - I just let loose and had a good time - the entire race. Mostly just so I could keep Tori in good spirits :) Pics don't lie!
