Pat Griskus finish

I'm still feeling like death warmed over and the lack of exercise (taking my rest week like a good little girl) is making me crabby and more tired.

I just got one of those emails from a race to order photos. I went through them and was reminded of the finish at the Pat Griskus Sprint. I was coming into the race shoot and a guy came up behind me and attempted to pass and I was NOT going to let that happen. He didn't realize at first that I was trying to stay with him.... the result was some funny pictures and we had a good laugh about it at the finish.

This is one of the reasons I love this sport so much. So fun to meet new people out there. You can read my race report HERE.

This first shot is just me ... I wish they had the other guy in it too. I'm laughing at myself and the effort I was putting out.
And this one is he and I after we crossed. Apparently the sun came out the moment we crossed that line.
I got a good laugh out of this and wanted to share some high notes after all my belly aching about my state of health (which I realize is really not that bad... I have a head cold, yes I feel like ass, but it will go away)....


  1. "feel like ass" - I say that all the time . . . sooo happy to know another person who finds that phrase awesome.

    I hope you don't feel like ass tomorrow.

  2. Laura, Those are some great finishing pics! You both are smiling big at the end ... that is what it is all about!

    Hope you feel better soon! I am still feeling like ass myself but have taken a day off of training so hopefully we both will kick this thing soon!

  3. Love this!! You are right, one of the best parts about this sport is the friends you make out on course! :D Way to sprint to the finish that day! And you'll feel better soon, I'm sorry it's been hanging on for so long. I can't wait to feel better myself, I feel fitness slipping away daily (actually hourly) haha

  4. Great photos and nice job not letting him pass you! Looks like good fun.

  5. Ugh..I'm sorry you're still sick! I hope you get better soon!
    I love those finisher pics..they are awesome, and what a great story to go with it!

  6. I'm hoping you are finally feeling better! :(

    Those are great photos... mines are NEVER that good! :)

  7. You look like your had a lot of fun that day!

    Take your rest. I dislike it too. You will be all the better and rock it out once you are 100%!

  8. I Love the photo of you laughing! It's alwas cool to have photos like that.
