  1. Those are great pics, and you look great, not sure what you're worried about! You look like the strong runner than you are! It's funny how you see your running gait while looking at race pics... :/

  4. OMG, you are so tough on yourself. Pics are great! LOVE the arm warmers, in fact, love the entire outfit. You have your game face on. Good.

  5. great pics! do we all dislike our own race pics? 'every one else looks normal, but..my god! look at me' sort of scenario...
    you look fine..a fantastic marathon to race in...

  6. You are too critical! Aren't we all though... I do love the pics to see running analysis. Yours with the heel strike, mine I look like I am hunched down. you looked pretty speedy to me!

  7. Love the commentary. ;) Really, who looks good in running pics? If you do, you aren't running fast enough...or that's what I tell myself. If you're rolling from the back heel to the front of your foot, its actually pretty efficient over the course of a marathon. Of course, if you toe off its less efficient :-/ My form is actually pretty similar. I'm pretty good at rolling off the ball of my foot BUT towards the end of NY? I was landing pretty horrifically flat footed. Eep.

    Either way, hill bounding can do a lot to straighten out your form.

  8. D'oh...that should read if you DON'T toe off its less efficient.

  10. Great pictures Lindsay, you look tough and intense which is just the way you should look. We are always our worse critics but guess what? YOU RAN NYC Marathon, you're awesome!! Do you think you'll do that marathon again?

  11. Can I just tell you how wonderful it is to see that a super-speedy kick-ass running ROCKSTAR like you has a heel-strike like me?

  18. I wish I could get a set of photos that are as good as those!

    And I don't care whether I have cottage cheese thighs or not (which by the way, you obviously *don't*), I find short shorts sooooo much more comfortable to race in!

    You look so strong and relaxed. And focused! No wonder you PR'd. What a great race!

  20. Giiiirl, what-ever! You are rock solid, looking HAWT! And what's that about flab and cottage cheese? You look awesome! Your body is fantastic.

    I don't know how many compliments it takes to begin sounding obsessive and creepy, BUT I'll also note that I love how serious you are - a true marathon face!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. LOL cottage cheese? you kill me! and btw there is NO cottage cheese to be seen. i love your arm warmers!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love your race pictures! You look awesome! Like a serious butt kicking runner!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't see any cottage cheese!

    I'm thinking of taking the taper down to just one week, but I'm just so scared to experiment with it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Your running pics are better than mine. I always look constipated. You look athletic and like you mean business. Like the sleeves too. Very cute.

    ReplyDelete
  25. great pics - you look INTENSE!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I found you right away, Waldo!
    You need to spend this week giving yourself compliments and love!


    and pie. :)

  27. Great race pics, you should be very proud! I have a few from my race, but still waiting on the official ones.

    Congrats again!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow I would never want you to watch my gait, if you think your heel strike is bad.. UGH!!

    And Girl try to find the positive, truly!! I think your commentary is FUNNY, but you look great!

  29. Here I am, thinking: Man! She's fast! What a hard-core marathon chica! You were thinking: Cottage cheese, anyone? Made me feel better about my own race-photo self-critiques, but still: Ease up on yourself, woman! Kara Goucher told Women's Running last month that she hates looking at race photos because she runs with "women with incredible bodies." There's a pattern here ...

    I think we running ladies of all shapes and sizes and paces need to step back and remember to focus on what our bodies can DO, not how they look!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just found your blog! Congrats on NYC! I love your pics!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Lindsay!!! Be nice to yourself! You totally rock and you look like an incredibly awesome runner in those pics!

    I guess if you're running well and pain-free you don't necessarily need to alter the heel-strike. But if you really wanted to change it, I think you'd have to slow down and make a conscious, focused-effort to pay attention to that for many training runs until it becomes second nature.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures!

  32. In that first "Where's Waldo" shot I totally picked you out, almost immediately!

    I know race pics are hard to be smiley, but having read all of your race reports, it did look like you were not happy in those pics - do you remember if you were feeling nauseous during any of them?

    Oh, and are you sure it's only that many number of squats and not 2 million? LOL, you crack me up.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ok,...so I eat cottage cheese every day and I didn't see any in those pictures, but you did get me to laugh out loud on your commentary. You are so funny.

    If anything you looked strong out there. My gosh, who's face wouldn't look a little strained running as fast (baby) as you were kicking it out there!

    You got a good man to have him take all those picts of you. Good job, Lindsey. Thanks for the photos; I love photos.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow - you got lots of good pictures!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You sure don't look like you didn't feel well! Great pics! No matter what you say!

    ReplyDelete
  36. You look like a serious runner running seriously...that's the point right?

    ReplyDelete
  37. You look just great Lindsay!!! For real. You look really runner like. Awesome thanks for sharing!!!


    I hope all is well and you had an awesome Thanksgiving!!!!!
