stand up straight

I just got the photos from the Santa Cruz Half Marathon (I mean I "borrowed" them from the race photo web site). You remember? This was the race I totally didn't want to run and let myself walk a ton. Lazy me.

Coincidently, Kaylynn just recently posted about running posture on Love to Run. I commented that it took me a while to learn that I really have to pull back my shoulders for race photos, because I tend to hunch when I'm getting tired.

But I was so excited when I saw my race photos! I wasn't hunched at all, and I certainly don't remember posing for a camera guy. Although I probably blocked a lot out of my memory from that race, so I'm sure I saw the camera guy, since they're usually hard to miss.

So exciting!

I take walks out to that lighthouse all the time. I love it. And now, there are swallows building nests under the eaves of the lighthouse, and at dusk you can see them swooping around catching bugs in the air. : ) What a nice place for a marathon.
