The best part about running any distance race is crossing the finish line. The SECOND best part about running a race is reviewing your race day photos! It doesn’t matter if it’s your first or hundredth race, there is nothing like scrolling through your race day photos! But has this ever happened to you? As you scroll through your photos, you realize those picture perfect action shots you remember posing for all ended up being race day photo fails?
WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE! So what do you do when your race day photos are less than flattering? You run with the joke! Here are 10 of my favorite race day photo fails…
Don’t let race day photo fails get you down! It’s not about how you look, it’s about how you feel! So what if your cellulite shows or you look like you’re about to pass out, that doesn’t diminish your accomplishment! So stop fighting terrible race day photo fails, just embrace them! And honestly, I’ll take a terrible action shot over a picture perfect posed photo any day. Dare to be imperfect! You’re a badass in my book. Until next time, #RunSelfieRepeat.
