|Photograph obviously belongs to MarathonFoto|
So the lessons learned here were:
- Fake it till you make it.
- Smile even if it feels like it will kill you because it will look like you had a great race.
- When you are a slower runner you get better pictures. If I'd been faster there would have been other runners in the shots. However, when you're pretty much on your own you have the photographers' full attention.
