Fun Pictures

Around mile 22 of the marathon. If anyone had doubts that Ian and I might be crazy - or dorky - this picture confirms it!

This picture makes me laugh. For some reason I always look like a bird-in-flight when I cross the finish line. What's even better is the guy just to the right.

And the close up. Check out those guns!! I need to work on a more exciting finish. The standard run-across-the-line is kind of boring.


I brought this beauty home today!! He is residing in the living room.

Riding is going to be super fun this weekend!

I dunno what that guy is so happy about... he's getting chicked! :)

And the fact that you are such a dork (and Ian totally is too) makes it just that much harder to hate you for being a stud.

We need to get Jesse to hang you some living room hooks like ours so the new bike can live inside!

I think your guns might be bigger than that guy next to you. That bike is so sweet. It definitely needs to be hung on the living room wall. Right next to the fixie.

I like how there's a time warp between the left and ride side of the finish line.

I loove that bike. And the matching wheels.

NJ said...

WOW on the bike...I'm drooling!

As for dorky pics...after swimming, biking or running for as long as we do, who wouldn't look dorky. I love dorky action pics and you make dorky look good!

IAN said...

Dorks we are, and I think D is right, it made it that much easier for the girls we passed on the way in to hate you.

And a message to the dude at the finish... No matter how hard you try, and even if its a 40min PR, you just CANNOT bust the Double Bi when getting fully CHICKED by a girl who rode 115mi the day before. You just can't. NO EXCEPTIONS!!

The matching wheels is like icing on the cake. Orange carrot cake!! UMMMM
