I'm NOT the Ridiculously Photogenic Running Guy
I've got just a few problems with this. Coming from a guy who has a face built for radio, I will never be labeled "photogenic." This guy is the Zac Efron of racing. Too pretty to be a guy or a runner.
The other problem I've got is that it looks like a commercial for feminine hygiene products (except that it's a guy.) "Look how happy I am doing something that most people look like crap doing." Let's face it...if you actually "race" in a 10K, you rarely flash a smile like this one. If you're somewhere past 18 miles in a marathon, or after 30 seconds of a 5K or 10K, you look like you're giving birth. It ain't normally pretty.
I realize I'm starting to sound like the guy that couldn't get a date in high school...I'll save that for the therapy couch and I'll stop here. Have a Ridiculously Photogenic race pic, or better yet, the anti-ridiculously photogenic race? Post them to my SeekingBostonMarathon facebook wall. A SeekingBostonMarathon sticker is your reward for the best pics.
