Desert Triathlon In Pictures

Dear Brightroom,

On the one in a million chance someone from you company visits my blog, I want to assure you that I did in fact purchase a jpeg from you for, ahem, $24.99 earlier this evening.  So I hope it's OK that I Shift + Command + 4'ed a few screen shots off of your site for my blog.

Thanks

P.

Wow, I'm coming out of the water both disheveled and defeated looking?  Shocking.  Look how my zipper strap has somehow worked it's way over my right shoulder.  And then there is the dainty grip on my swim cap.  I should be on fire right about now taking off my suit.  Pathetic.









On the bike and thus more in my element.  I remember when this shot was taken actually, because I recall almost hitting the photographer.  You are a gutsy guy, my action sports photographer friend.











What do you guys think?  Should I keep rocking the Andreas Raelert head band look?  This, by the way, is probably about a 1/4 mile before the bonk.

I love the bike picture, my fave! You don't look like a potential bonker to me in any of the pictures, you look strong and concentrating hard! (And smokin' again! IMHO)

The white headband says a lot... what exactly I am not sure...

Jason said...

I would definitely keep the headband and I would promote the fact that you are about to pass Angelina Jolie on the run.

Does she not look like AJ?

KC (my 140 point 6 mile journey) said...

I like the head band look. You should keep rocking it!

Good bike pic!

You know I am all for the headband look - keep rockin that bitch!

Christi said...

I agree with KC and Jeff, keep rockin' the headband!

Kovas said...

The headband makes you look like you forgot to take your swimcap off - maybve that's why you bonked?

Karen said...

Love the bike pic - Kudos to gutsy sports photog!

Tri4Success said...

Great bike pic and I think you're safe keeping the headband.

Oh, and we all screenshot photo sites from time to time.

Caratunk Girl said...

The bike picture rocks, but I want to see the picture of you telling that dude who shoved you off ;)

Great job Patrick. Oh, and the headband rocks, and you should keep it.

You look focused in all the pictures. Personally I like the swim picture. Coming out of the water is a sloggy feeling and youve just been grinding away horizontal for 24 minutes + . What is it with you and these zipper straps ? Do we need to run a clinic on velcroing the tab ?

And FYI- i always Function/Prt Sc my race photos...I never pay the ridiculous amount of money they want for them...if they lowered the cost they would make more I guarantee it...

Big Clyde said...

Badass, man.

Laura said...

Your pics way surpass anything I have had in a race. I look like death.

Allison said...

Your race pics rock. Mine always look crazy .... I have a "I hate this face" or a "this hurts - make it stop face".... you on the other hand, look intense and awesome

Jill said...

Oh how many times I've 'shift, command, 4'd'!! :)

I like the pics, I know next to nothing about how someone donning a wetsuit is suppose to look but it appears good to me, as do the rest. Totally loving the headband look!

Colleen said...

Definitely keep the headband! :)

Aimee said...

Great pics! The bike one is awesome!
And, I agree with the others, keep the headband!

The Green Girl said...

Chris K said...

F yeah wear the head band. It's you. And, you can pull it off. I could not.

Great bike pic - I hope that's the one you bought.

lindsay said...
