During most of the big races in the world photographers take pictures of the runners and put them online so you can order them. For the Shanghai Half Marathon I ordered a CD with my pictures on it (price: RMB 298 for about 25 photos, which is less money than a single picture at the New York Marathon costs) and I received it a couple of days ago. They also put some general pictures of the race on there, quite nice to get them actually. Below a few pictures of me during the race.
Start of the race at the Bund with the Pudong skyline in the background
On the EXPO 2010 grounds close to the China pavilion
Easy running! As you can see I run on my Vibram FiveFingers, not on normal running shoes
Giving it all in the last meters before the finish line. Gross time 1:36:05, net time 1:35:53
Going to the limit while crossing the finish line
But two minutes later I feel great again for the post finish photo!
