Friday Foto

Today I felt like being as random as Chris and Becca, thus, the Friday Foto!

This is a series of pictures of Kevin after he ran the Grandma's Marathon with Becca...Goes to show, you should never underestimate the power of the sun or the great need to wear sunscreen...especially if you are a cute haole boy who has marble-white skin!
You can't tell in the pictures, but Kevin actually was covered in small blisters and now has scars on his shoulders from the burn!


Lesson learned though. Kevin is now trying much harder not to get skin cancer and has been wearing long sleeve shirts to the pool and running later in the evening when the sun doesn't beat down on him so hard! Still haven't been able to convince him to wear sunscreen though! Baby Steps!

Owie! That hurts just looking at it! In Kevin's defense, we DID put on sunscreen before the marathon. It just wasn't water proof, sweat proof, and running for almost 5 hours in the hot sun proof : )

Ummm...I'm really confused on why he would prefer to wear long-sleeved shirts in the middle of summer instead of sunscreen...

Brian has scars on his shoulders, too, from a really bad sunburn from years ago. He's still not great about wearing sunscreen. Totally stresses me out. The guy thinks he's invincible. :/

Ouch!! So which was worse Kev, the pain from the sunburn or the pain from actually running the marathon?

Forget the blisters and peeling skin...the skin cancer years later is the big worry!

Here in Thailand it is hot as sin. The sun just sears everything. Thai's, despite the heat, wear long sleeves outside while on their mopeds, or running to get food. They don't wear the long sleeves so much for protecting the skin from (cancer, blisters, etc.) but more to keep their skin from getting tanned. Darker skin here is not preferred like in the States. The whiter and paler your skin, the more beautiful it seems to be considered.

Kev, have fun peeling all that off, that's the funnest part of a good sunburn!
