Race Day Picture Tips

October 30, 2009 1 comment

Just got this email, I thought I’d pass it along.  Great tips on how to get photographed by BrightRoom, the official Photographers of the NYC Marathon!!  HERE IS WHERE THEY ARE LOCATED!! There are 11 Photograph Spots, also 4 video spots, you won’t miss them, plus people around you will be going nuts for the cameras.  Have Fun!!

1.) Please Take a Number – Wear your race number high in the center of your chest. We use the numbers to identify your photos. Also, remember to wear your number on a layer of clothes that we can see.

2.) Read a Map – Review our course shot locations on the aforementioned link and be sure to look for our photography teams wearing blue vests.

3.) Rub the Curb – When you approach our photography locations, move to one side of the road (don’t run right down the middle).

4.) Smile – Smile, yell or wave at our photographers – they love it!

5.) Do a Shot Before You Race – Be sure to get your pre-race commemorative photo by visiting our various corral locations (photographers in the blue vests) at the start staging areas between 7.00am-9.00am.

6.) Do a Shot After You Race – After you finish, grab your medal and get your commemorative medal photo by visiting our candid stations. Commemorate your accomplishment!

7.) Celebrate – Don’t Watch Your Watch – As you finish, put your hands in the air, or give a high-five to your running mate – DO NOT block your number by looking down at your watch. Let you chip record your accurate time.

8.) Don’t Tailgate – At our photo locations and at the finish, don’t run right behind someone else. Run in your own space (if you can). That way, you’ll get a cleaner shot and really showcase your finish.

9.) Run a 5 minute mile pace like Ryan Hall.

10.) Have Fun!

Easy Tempo, Weather Forecast, Next Weeks Dress Rehearsal, and Pictures!

New York weather is officially crazy.  Supposed to be 76 today, it was 43 a few days ago, back down to 55 by Tuesday.  Who knows what Nov 1st will be…accuweather.com says Hi 48 Lo 39, possible morning shower. Hi 60, Lo 51 and sunny.  Thats doable, would like it a little warmer, but I’d definitely prefer a little chilly to a little warm.  Big change from yesterday’s prediction…Sun I like, any warmer could be an issue.  Still hoping for 55 and sunny!

Today’s workout was just a tune up, 3x10min tempo with 2 min rest.  Ran with Nate and managed a brisk but comfortable 620-630 per mile pace.

Next week on Wednesday I plan to do a marathon “dress rehearsal” which basically is dressing exactly how I plan to dress on marathon day.  I’m doing this because 1. I’m excited.  Even at age 35, I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve.  2.  It will be good for my peace of mind to know I am not missing anything in my outfit.  3.  I will visualize a great race

I wanted to share some exciting pics from my facebook friend Dee of marathon prep around the city…
