OMG

That picture needs to be cross posted in the "embarassing pictures" thread

What that picture says is "no matter how far I open my g*ddamn mouth, I am still not going to get enough oxygen to stay in this race for more than about 20 more seconds...."


That race was my first DNF.

I'd love to say it was my first DNF, but no...

I guess you were more photogenic than some lame-a$$ guy walking back to the start line with his front tire off the rim...

No, that's the 5's race. There is a guy in the 5's on our team who kinda resembles me, though...
