Last week I received an email with my ‘official’ race photos from the Asheville Half Marathon at the Biltmore Estate. For once I look mostly human, so I thought I’d share a few. All official photos are from Carolina Snapshot.
Mile 6 at the house:
Before mile 7 going past the gardens:
Here is a picture I took of the gardens during the race:
And here is a picture of what the gardens look like in full bloom. I took this picture when I went to the Biltmore Estate with Barry, his mom, and his sister during May or June when I was in college.
Okay, back to race photos. Finish line:
Not sure where this is, possibly somewhere on the west side of the Estate during the second half:
How do your official race photos typically turn out?
Half of the time I liken mine to my driver’s license photo…. I don’t really look like that, do I?

Pictures are good.They really seem to capture the moment.You both look wet and cold.LUD.
Wet and cold. That about sums it up!
I love the pictures of you in front of the mansion! I like my 5K photos much better than my marathon ones. In my marathon photos I usually seem to have either both feet firmly planted on the ground, or I am completely slouching (no wonder I hurt my back). In my 5K photos I look like a runner! 🙂
They picked a good spot for those first pictures. The faster you run, the better your race photo will look! We should start telling people that as a motivator 🙂
Oh my. I know you said it rained, but these pictures make it look like it poured non-stop! Glad you survived and stayed warm.
It didn’t pour until the end of the race, but it rained steadily throughout. The pictures captured it pretty well. It took me forever to get my hair combed out after the race!
Good pictures! Poor Barry looks so WET! 😦
He was soaked to the bone!
