What I post on this blog:

Reality (30 seconds earlier):
I kid…Grace really is my best poser ever (and she’s gonna kill me for posting that), but seriously these pictures make me smile. They’re even better if you look at them in reverse order.

She’s all grumpy:

I tell her she better shape up and I love the fake smile:(I promise Claire is just a little mixed up on how to make a “peace” sign…not whatever my brother just told me that sign is in England…)

The point of these pictures though, is not just to put reality out there. I want to show these awesome shirts that Amy (the incredibly thoughtful racer) had made up and wore in her race as well as hosting a give-away. Some people asked about getting their own “I Love Lucy” shirts to run in and she wrote about how to get one here (she also tells an inspiring story about the guy who made her the shirts…my heart reaches out to him).

Let me know if anyone else runs with an I Love Lucy shirt because I’d love to include pictures on the I Love Lucy blog.

Thanks so much, Amy!
