Now it’s time for the fun part. The finish line is in sight and, admit it, you can’t wait to stop running. The finish line of every race is typically where there are the most photo opportunities. This is a great time to let the emotions of the race finally take over. Throw your hands up in the air and roar triumphantly—you’ve earned it!
While you’re likely focusing on the time on your watch, refrain from stopping your watch until after you’ve crossed the finish line. Photographers will be taking your picture right at the finish, and it makes for a much better photo when you’re looking up and smiling rather than looking down at your watch.
Keep in mind that not all races have photographers on course. If you want photos of yourself racing during a smaller race, consider having a spouse, parent or close friend stand along the course at a predetermined location with a camera or phone.
