So I ran the annual Bolder Boulder 10-km Memorial Day race, and today they sent my photos. Of course they take pictures of pretty much everyone– all 52,000 of us– and then hope we’ll all pay twenty clams to buy a nice 8×10″ print. But hey, at least I can have a teensy digital picture of myself huffing and puffing along the race route.

So below is a nice before-and-after shot: me with my friend Sean (who ran much, much faster than I did) before the race, and me chugging toward the finish line.

And I did manage to beat my goal: my official time was 58:46. Nothing to brag about, I suppose, but considering I never trained and don’t race any other time during the year, it’s also not too shabby.
