Portrait of a Wannabe


I still love running - but I know God was having a good laugh at me running into that 34 mph gusting wind!

You look like a WARRIOR man...good for you

Jill said...

That's not a picture of a wannabe - that's a picture of a RUNNER!

Ewa said...

Hey, even God can use a good laugh.

Patrick Mahoney said...

Andrew I think that's a great pick.

Patrick Mahoney said...

sorry, pic.

Julie @ Hotlegs Runner said...

I agree! That's not a wannabe...that's a warrior right there!

TRI714 said...

INSPIRING for sure.

ShebaJC said...

you look like a whole new person, my friend

FruitFly said...

Man - and I thought I analyzed every bit of my face. You win this one, Friend!

Lisa said...

that's not a wannabe, that's a hard core runner!

Kiesha said...

I'm right there with ya...except the facial hair. I tripped MYSELF 3 times while running with wind the other day. It kept blowing one foot sideways into the other. So sad. I thought I was more coordinated then that.

Quinton J said...

Andrew...You look SO different from just a few months ago.
...In a sexy kinda' way.

Forward Foot Strides said...

What Jill said, you are a runner!

ShutUpandRun said...

The goatee is a nice touch.

You'll have to change the name of your blog to runningmannow or runningmaniam. No more wannabe here.

Anne-Marie said...

You gotta be a pretty hardcore runner to venture out into 34mph wind gusts!

Adrienne said...

That is some serious wind! You have lost some weight buddy! Nice work. Looking good to me. Girls don't like "pretty" slicked hair boys anyway we need manly men. :)

Her Name is Rio said...

Now that is WINDY! When you run despite the wind trying to stop you- you are a runner.
Wow- you have lost some weight compared to your profile picture!

Lesley @ racingitoff.com said...

Love it! (And I stinkin' HATE wind... especially during a race.)

James said...

Ouch that sounds rough. I just picked up a treadmill so I can avoid days like that. Do you have one or consider getting one?

Johann said...

The wannabe is certainly disappearing fast as the runner is appearing. It is fantastic to see how you have progressed! Awesome Andrew!

Kovas Palubinskas said...

Man you look like a skinny gangsta, thought I was looking at Q for a sec!

Heather said...

I agree with the others, you are no longer a wannabe! that sounds like some crazy wind gusts you were running in!

Karen R said...

I have no idea how you do your runs in that COLD!! :)

Rae said...

Wow! You are skinny! Holy cow!

Matty B. said...

You have successfully dissected your own self-portrait. I think my favorite one was where you had to grow out the bottom half of the mustache because your wife said you looked stupid. I'm not saying that you would/did but I'm saying it made me laugh.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Chris K said...

I said it before and I'll say it again. Who are you and what have you done with Andrew? Dude, email me.... how much weight have you lost? Pounds please. .

Adam said...

1. Good lord, you're dropping weight like no body's business!
2. Really glad you're doing the stash for prostate. Our cancer gets a bad rap.
3. That second ghost image of you freaked me out!

Paul said...

Cool to see your face pic vs your old blog face pic...!

BTW: you know your cheeks aren't 'sunken'..your standards are still from pre-running, fat Andrew 8)

Lee said...

Love the portrait - can relate to some of those features i.e. wind and toque hair! Fellow Canuck here and love winter running - harder for me in the +30 with humidity temps!
