There has been considerable debate amongst my friends as to how I look in this photograph…
They all agree on ‘bad’ and spontaneous laughter was the most common reaction, but what’s the expression all about? Some say I look disgusted, others, horrified and a couple just assumed I was exhausted, after all, I’d just run 10km.
It was my first fun run and I was approaching the finish line beaming with pride, the furthest I’d run without stopping in my preparation was 4km. I was absolutely thrilled with myself for running the whole way. I had exceeded my expectations by a long shot and was pretty damned pleased to see that finish line.
In the moment before I was snapped, my happiness turned to horror as I saw a man getting CPR no more than a metre from the finish line. Maybe I do look disgusted and I was exhausted but the correct answer is ‘horrified’.
