Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 


For the last couple years I've been using a few photography tools regularly; iPhoto for basic image editing and cataloging, Smugmug for online sharing/backup, Photoshop Elements 6 for more in-depth photo editing. Actually, I've been using Photoshop for all editing, as I've just not taken to figuring out how to do thing in iPhoto, and it's my understanding that the editing tools in Photoshop are more powerful. So iPhoto was more for cataloging, and as a cataloger it's great. I can tag people in my photos, then find all the photos with that person in it. I can tag location in my photos. If I were to ever take a vacation I think that would be neat to see my trip laid out as a map that I can click on the stopping points to see the pictures there. I can also use the stars to rate photos, and key words to further catalog my photos. I can make Smart Albums based on all of these things. I could have an album that's made up of shots of my friend J, in San Francisco, CA,
