More marathon photos!

I finally got my official marathon photos ordered and received and scanned.

The marathon hires these photographers, see, who take bajillions of pictures along the marathon route. Then some poor schmuck has to look at all the pictures and identify which bib numbers are showing in them. Then you can use your bib number to find your photos online and mortgage your house and sell your kidneys to buy your very own copies. I ordered four 5x7 prints for a whopping $80. It's information superhighway robbery, if you ask me.

And here are two of my expensive new pix: me crossing the finish line (looking surprisingly awake and alive and happy) and me smiling like the proud parent of two gifted quadriceps at the finishers' photo op. Enjoy!

CONGRATS! From what I've read, and from these pictures, I definitely know you deserve every accolade you get.

You SO must have the first pic made into a poster.

I really hope you're proud of your accomplishment, Jake. You should be.

Oh, and nice arms.

Great Pics!
When do we get to see your bathroom pictures?

David said...

Jake, how many times do I have to tell you about goosing the runners in front of you?

Sam said...

*ahem*... Please excuse me while I objectify you: HOT. ;-)

Sheesh! Jake! How tall ARE you? You totally blocked out the 'Finisher' banner behind you. But well done, of course.( I.Cant.Imagaine. )The NYC marathon went past my house on Sunday. It was cool for about an hour. After about FIVE hours, the screaming and clapping had me ready to kill. But that would have meant getting off the couch.

At least you got your photos...they couldn't find mine after I did Chicago last year.

Congrats anyway! If you can smile that big at the end of the race you obviously didn't push yourself hard enough... ;-)
