Subverting the forward-running hegemony!

(Alternate title for this post is "OMG AL IS A CAMWHORE".)

They got tons of pictures of me at the half-marathon, especially pictures of me running backwards across the finish line.

Linky.

I definitely don't look so good in the Cannery Row-area shots. In fact, I look like I'm stumbling and about to fall on my face.

Early in the race I waved at one of the photographers, but 'e must've either missed me or decided that I looked like a dumbass.

I love how you are *totally* representin' for "Back off man, I'm a scientist" by wearing your Wild West Relay bling...

Running backwards? You're such a nut!

I was considering wearing my yellow team shirt with my yellow shorts for the race, but I went with the *bling* because it's the best running shirt I own.

Well, that would have been pretty rad to cross the finish line backwards with the team shirt too :-)

That would have been a whole lotta yellow. You could have gone as the sun for Halloween. :)
