No Ice Iced Coffee

Hello and Happy Thursday Smile I have a mid-length run scheduled for tomorrow and a 10k on Saturday so I’m taking today easy. I’m planning on taking a long walk to catch up with my BFF on the phone in a minute.

Breakfast was an egg burrito and tons of watermelon. It’s too good, I can’t stop.IMG_6326 (800x533)

And Iced Coffee with no ice Sad smileIMG_6328 (800x533)

We don’t have any ice because our refrigerator broke this week and I bought a new one on Monday. It should be delivered today “between 3pm and 5pm”.

Our broken fridge has stayed a little cold so it still has a ton of produce, drinks and condiments in it. I have to clean it out and transfer everything to a cooler this afternoon. Or I can eat everything?

I got the race picture I ordered from the Fontana Half Marathon yesterday!!! It was the first race where I felt like I was running (as opposed to slugging along). So, when I got a coupon code a while back I had to order one! I need to frame it and put it up now Smile IMG_6335 (533x800)

Have you ever ordered a race picture?! Have you got a personal camera picture printed out for inspiration?

    The only race picture I have ever ordered is of me crossing the finish line at my first half marathon. I was psyched that I did not look like I was ready to die and was proud of that accomplishment so I put it in a frame in my bedroom. My (almost 5 yr old) daughter told me the other day that she also wants a picture of me running in her room. Too cute!

    I have my first half marathon coming up in October and I am so excited/nervous! I definitely plan on ordering a picture! My sister and I are doing it together so we want to have them framed together! Gives me chills to imagine crossing that finish line!!

    That’s a great race picture! I never ordered one because I look rediculous in mine. I sent one to my Husband for a good laugh & he said I look like I’m dancing. (men…eye roll) 😀

    I look so bad in the most recent race picture that I have… I swear my legs look like tree trunks. I know I should try to embrace the muscle but I wish I had thin, long legs. Never gonna happen I guess- but I guess I could have just said NO Lol

    great pic! ive ordered some from previous races..they’re definitely nice to have around when you aren’t feeling motivated..even though i look like im about to drop dead in most of them!

    No race picture as I’ve never run a race (but will in Sept!). I only have photos of me after the fact, red face and sweaty with a forced smile on my face….not very inspirational. :)

    You on the other hand, totally inspire me! Keep up the work and good luck on Saturday!

    NO! Would never want (or need!) a race photo of meself. HA …. I’d look horrid. A freak of nature.

    You do okay for race-photo-shots Monica. A bit pale a times. Geez …. in all honestly, hard runs can make a person croak. That would be me.

    For sure, you are highly inspriring to/for other females. You also have a natural type of niceness/humor! I like it.

    From what I’ve seen on many posts, you do photograph great! Maybe it has something to do with persistence and definitely true-grit!

    Not all of us can do those difficult/sweaty runs. I admire you ladies that continually keep it going ….. day-in & day-out. Just marvelous.

    P.S. In my next life I shall work harder. Maybe. (sigh)

    I am about to order two from my half…I hate the one becuase I look HORRIBLE..but it is of me and my dad after the race…my face is all puffy from crying but it was so worth it!!

    That’s a great picture! Mine always look sluggish, I definitely need to learn to pick up those feet whenever I see a photographer. I bought one picture from my first half marathon with my husband. Of course, he looks fabulous and I’m looking down.

    I might buy one from my first 10k, but the only thing I don’t like about the pictures is that my shorts are riiiiiiding up. 😛

    I have never bought a race photo before but been very tempted too! However, both my first half marathon and full marathon supplied digital photos for free – which I think rocks!

  11. says

    Sorry to hear about your fridge!!! :(

    I have my finish line pic from my first marathon hung up in my office at work, it’ a constant reminder that I CAN DO ANYTHING I set my mind too! :)

    I ordered one from my 3rd marathon because I PRd by 27 minutes and thought I was awesome (and would never run that fast again)… now my PR is actually 15 minutes faster than that, but I haven’t ordered any more pictures. They are SO expensive! And I usually have my husband taking pictures for free!

    I was just looking for this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative websites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage.
