I think I might regret this (why do I keep putting myself on blast?), but … I’ve been looking at old photos to use for my father’s 70th birthday celebration this weekend and came across my first race photo ever. Since it’s “Throwback Thursday,” I figured I’d go ahead and post it.
Thirty years ago on May 31, 1982; my father, Nicole, and I ran in the Bolder Boulder 10K Classic in Colorado. It was my first race and I think it was my last until recent years. Gasp!
Don’t you just love the headband and the fashionable sweat socks?
I look like I was about to die and that’s the one thing I remember about that race – I thought I was about to die. I would have never guessed back then that I would end up running marathons.
Nicole, my Dad and me in 1982. I was 11.

How about you? Do you have your first race photo ever?
