Half marathon photos

Here are some photos that just arrived from the B&A Trail Half Marathon last Sunday. Fun! Doesn't look as cold as I felt!

I think this one might have been right before the finish line. It's kind of hard to tell, since the trail looks much the same anywhere you are along it.

I don't have any idea why I'm running like a kung fu fighter.

You made me sing that song! "Everybody was Kung-Fu fighting, those kicks were fast as lightning" there, now did I make you sing it? :)

You look very intense, or maybe you were just running away from the cold?

don't be too hard on yourself. I seldom get a running picture I am happy with.

Better than having fists clenched tightly....

i was going to post on running efficiency today... probably next WKW... do you swing your arms a lot? do you do cadence/stride work? definite gains there for me. i'm actually thinking of going to get a pro gait analysis

On gait stuff - my professional background (before I became a full-time Mom) was in gait analysis. I think most of what is being propagated by self-styled "experts" concerning gait is baloney, personally. Show me the objective, peer-reviewed research evidence that altering gait by conscious effort results in increased efficiency or enhanced speed at the same level of effort or show me the demographics on injury reduction. So far, I haven't seen any evidence of that type, or anything even close to it.

You have a habit of running with open palms like that. I tend to run with little curled fists, but I try to keep the THUMBS UP! :-)

Maybe having your hands open keeps them air-cooled?

Karate chop! :)

You look really strong for it being the end of the race! Nice job! :)
