Here it is. It wasn't a great race for me -- I had lingering effects of a cold, and while I battled back and forth with the same four women from mile 2 to the end, all four of them ended up beating me -- but at least this awesome photo came out of it. I look like I deserve my elite number! The photo is by Brightroom, of course, and I am seriously considering purchasing it. In most of my race pictures, I look either uncoordinated or dumpy -- but not this time!
I am a graduate student, working on my PhD in math. I do research and teach calculus to college students. In my free time, I work on becoming an elite distance runner. This blog contains my reflections on math and running, including race writeups.
