Dexter-Ann Arbor Run Pictures

Since my Official Photographer/Gear Wrangler was out of town when I ran the Dexter-Ann Arbor Run two weeks ago, I caved and bought some pictures of myself ($80 for three digital picture files? Highway robbery, I say! But I bought them anyway).

Somewhere around mile 3, I think, on Huron River Drive.

The typical finish pose of many a runner. Make sure to hit that stopwatch as you cross the finish line!

I like this one the best. I look like a Real Runner. Now, if only the time on the clock over my head started with a "4" instead of a "5"...recall, dear readers, that my official finish time was 50:00 on the dot.

Great pics...I have maybe 2 photos that I don't look like a complete dork in out of all the races I've done. The day where I get a few good ones I will buy all the digital files, too!

Great shots and I'm still having speed-envy over your time :-). I hope someday to catch up with your happy arse!

I'm with Kirsten - I'll only buy the digital files if they're good. Fortunately, that day will never come, so it looks like I don't have to worry about shelling out a ton of money!

I do look at all the race pictures they take, and save the small versions on my computer.

I was asked by the club to photograph the 5&10k start and the section of course on Maple. While searching the net for other photos of the race I came upon your site. I agree with your sentiment about the excessive cost of photos. Anyway, I did a quick scan and saw one of you on the HS Track. Here is the link to it. Just right click and down load if you like (ignore the buy photo that is for having prints sent to you). The DxA2 run web site has a link to my site as well.
