I'm not sure if this is just the 4:10 pace group, or a larger group, such as the Marathon Maniacs. (Download)

These next five photos have some minor differences (i.e. flaws) among them, such as someone who may have been looking elsewhere, or blinked when the photo was taken. Rather than post one imperfect photo, I thought I'd post all of them in order give everyone a chance to find the photo that portrays them best.  (The second photo seems to have the least noticeable flaws.)
