    Pretty race photos

    Why is it that, say, Emily Batty always looks so great in race photos, but I have snot and drool running down my face?

    LOL. Maybe she's got people on her staff that takes care of all of her "glamour" for every public appearance?

    Yeah, I think I clean up okay for the post-race photos. No pearls or makeup, but fresh-scrubbed and healthy.

    During the race I get a little self-conscious whenever I see a photographer. I just try to look really badass. LOL

    All I can say is your a chick on a bike in a race and that's hot.

    Bada** is good. From taking photos at friends' marathons, I learned to get them early on in the race when they still look fresh and have a nice stride. When you get dog tired, the photos suffer.
