{Link-Up} Runners Tell All: Share a Running Picture

I have to admit, when I saw the prompt for this month's Runners Tell All link-up, the first thing I thought was ew. Because I have the ugliest running face ever.  Don't even try to convince me that yours is worse because I can guarantee that it isn't.  It's pretty much the running equivalent of Kim K's crying face.  No joke.

But then I decided to make this fun and create a little contest to find the ugliest running face picture of myself that I could possibly find.  And there were some real gems to be found, let me tell you!  However, considering that 1) I don't want to scare everyone away and 2) this is the Internet and my lovely running face pictures would be available for anyone to find at anytime, I decided that if you want to see the winner, you possibly could bribe me with a Barnes & Noble gift card.  Just saying.

But to make it up to you (since I know you're all incredibly disappointed . . .), I found my absolute favorite running picture ever!

My mom took this picture during my very first 300 hurdle race (aka, The Mean Mother Race) my freshman year of track and I'll admit that the winner of the ugly face contest was taken about seven seconds after this one.  And no, I'm still not sharing that one.

Link up with Amanda and Beka and share some of your running pics - the good, the bad and the ugly (I know you have them too!)




I've seen so many bloggers post their own "Currently" posts and it seems like such a cool idea.  So get ready because here comes a crash course on what I've been up to!

I'm currently . . .

listening to "Roar" by Katy Perry because I'm listening to Spotify and I ran out of skips.

finishing up When God Writes Your Love Story by Eric and Leslie Ludy - finally!

worried about the A.P. U.S. History test that I'm taking next week.  What happened to "being worried" because it was "only 2 months away?" Please, I would give nearly anything to put this off for a few more months!

researching cameras!  It's time for a new set of lens for this girl and I'm excited to upgrade my photography game!

excited for the trip to Europe I'm taking this summer! Less than two months until my adventure overseas!

recovering from prom.  Recap to come later this week (maybe!)

wanting to run a half marathon. Or a marathon relay.  Or basically anything over 3 miles.

eating nothing.  Because three fajitas, rice, refried beans, and chips and salsa are extremely filling.  Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Now that you have the exclusive dish on the fascinating life of Allison, it's question time!

Do you have any camera recommendations for me?
Did you celebrate Cinco de Mayo?  If so, how?
