VOTE NOW for the the First Annual Earn Your Donuts Bad Race Photo Contest Winner

After a month of not running and scrounging the dusty corners of my brain for blog post ideas, I launched the blog's first contest & giveaway: The First Annual Earn Your Donuts Bad Race Photo Contest (Brought to You by Road ID). As the name implied, Road ID contributed a $35 gift card for the winner, and I'm offering a $10.00 Dunkin Donuts gift card for the runner up.

Though readers said the idea was funny, participation was a bit lower than I'd hoped, leading me to believe that the idea was not as hilarious as I'd thought. Two brave souls participated, and it's now time to choose our winner.

Photos appear in the order in which they were submitted.

Danny, who blogs at "The Quest for Running Perfection" sent us this entry:

XLMIC who blogs at "Taking it On", shared this entry:

Please vote for your favorite in the poll below. Voting is open through the end of March.

Who has the best (worst) bad race photo?

Thanks again to both of our contestants for participating and to Road ID and Outside PR for their help!


  1. I'm torn; generally I believe in not voting for yourself.

    1. I would encourage both you and XLMIC to each vote for yourselves. (I'm sure I'm murdering grammar here, but you know what I mean...)

      Don't you want fabulous prizes?

  2. I thought you looked bad enough that it warranted voting for yourself...I'm convinced these photographers are trained to take the worst pictures of us on purpose!

  3. I still think mine is the worst, but I forgot to email it to you. Sorry! Can I vote for both of them???? Anyone willing to put their worst photo on the web deserves a vote, in my opinion. It takes balls to share terrible race pics with the world. Know what I mean?
