Boston Photo Challenge: Pain

Today’s Boston Photo Challenge is #pain, I believe. Here is my picture of pain:

But, at least I outsprinted that girl in the background -- for second-to-last place.

This is actually another picture somewhere from Collegiate Nationals in 2006, where I got mildly altitude sick during the bike. As I came in off the bike, to T2, I unclipped both feet and then realized that wasn’t my best idea, so I just put my feet down while still on my bike and sort of skidded/crashed into the transition. I, then, woozily started running towards transition, dry heaving and crying as I went, before eventually sitting down and sobbing — but never letting go of my bike. There’s a picture of that somewhere and the expression on my face is #pain.
