|The best pictures for flatties are running photos, of course. The more fun and festive the picture, the better.
|Jennifer's comment says it all! When I actually got to meet her at Gasparilla this year, it was like we'd already run a race together!
As you guys saw on the post with Christine, bringing flatties along can be a means of keeping injured runners "running" and emotionally supported. Sometimes runners bring the flatties with them during a hard race for their own motivation and mental strength. I remember one time, we sent flatties by the dozens to a friend who was having knee surgery, so he wouldn't be alone.
