New RunnerDude Contest! Funniest Running Photo

Since the Running Mantra Contest was such a huge success, RunnerDude is sponsoring another contest—The Funniest Running Photo Contest. We all have (tucked away in a drawer somewhere) those not-so-flattering race-finish photos where we look like a zombie. Or maybe you, a family member, or a running buddy ran in a costume or theme race as the back-half of a cow or sported a pink tutu. Or take new shot of that goofy runner hidden in you or a running buddy. Doesn't matter as long as it's running-related and humorous, just make sure it's G-rated and appropriate for all audiences. RunnerDude will select ten photos to be judged by you the readers. The owner of the winning photo will receive a $50 REI gift card!

After the winner is determined, a posting will be added to the blog showing all the submitted photos. So email your photos to runnerdudeblog@yahoo.com by midnight Saturday, June 6th, 2009. RunnerDude will have the top 10 photos posted for you to vote on by Monday, June 8th. You'll have until Sunday, June 14th to cast your vote. The winner of the funniest running photo contest will be announced on Monday, June 15th.

Hey Jo Lynn! Well, if your pic wins, maybe we can do a gift certificate from a competitor. LOL!

I don't have a picture, BUT here's the visual: During my Chicago marathon, at about the 7 mile mark I came upon a guy in RaceReady shorts. He had so much gel, keys and coins in his pocket that his shorts were literally falling down. Yes, crack was heavily involved. A guy running next to me "cracked up" as did I. I had to burn some rocket fuel to get around him because I was laughing so hard. I grabbed a Gu myself once I was around him and because I was still laughing, I totally missed my mouth as I shot the Gu and it went all over my shirt and cheek. (That's actually 2 photo opps in 1, huh). Needless to say, two funny moments I will never forget.

Hey Jeff! The vision I have in my mind is pretty hilarious! Wish you had a pic of it! LOL!!

Dena said...

I learned about zombie pics in my first marathon. Now, I can be coughing up blood but I'll still paste a big "I'm a winner!" smile on my face when I see a camera. Oh vanity....

RunnerDude said...

Hey Dena! See if you can find that first Zombie pic! LOL!!

Gabby said...

I'm with Dena. I don't have any zombie picks of myself and are quite the opposite. My fellow TNT mates are jealous! Ugh. I know I shouldn't be ugh-ing this fact but that means I can't enter the contest. Or can we enter photos of other people?

RunnerDude said...

Hey Gabby! Sure you can send in a goofy pic of friends or family.Probably best to let them know you're entering their pic. LOL!

Adam said...

Dang, I wish I had more fun pics. More often than not, i'm just staring off into space.

RunnerDude said...

Hey Adam! Dig deep, I bet you can come up with one. Or take a new goofy one!
