"Maybe the duckface selfie wasn't that bad after all..." . . .
Recently I saw a post of a runner. I noticed the reactions were quite intense. . .
Of course, the post could have been written with more nuance maybe, but the post and reactions made me think... . .
Why ? Nothing wrong to share a post of a run, even when it was hot, you were tired, back from injury, fastest, longest etc.. .
Social media is about to share. Also to ask, although sometimes I might think why people didn't Google a minute before asking others. Never mind, we are keen to help. . .
Selfies before, during, after.. Prefered with your beloved app (fill in your choice from Strava, Nike+, Polar, Runkeeper whatever). Or maybe even better: photos of a run you competed in. .
Rise & shine at start to half-below-grounds after hitting a wall, till smiling with medal. Like these photos of a guy in green shirt who hit the wall and still had a lot of kilometers to go.. 😁 . .
Real photos from the world of running. . .
I think the other tried to make a point I recognize: there are some who seem to make more effort to get an action picture then the sports of running itself. Putting camera with selftimer in a tree and running several times till the photo is right... . .
I've seen bizarre photos. People who seem to run out of a lake with dry clothes.. I thought, what secret do they have I don't know, because when I get out of the water.... 😉 Also a million dollar tip for triatlon.. .
Another: someone came as it seemed on the photo - sprinting just 5 steps out of the Colosseum of Rome. Regarding architecture of that building, that is quite an achievement.. 😉 . .
At moments I wonder if a new subculture in photography is in the making from which we think in a while.. that maybe the duckface selfie wasn't that bad after all 😉 . .
Nothing wrong being enthousiastic about running. Understood you want to look good. To inspire others to start and keep running.. don't forget the essence of it 😉. . .
