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. 

An Oldie

I'm going through my photo library to try and clean it up. I'm a bit of a pack rat when it comes to photos, since they don't really take up space. Anyway, I've come across some older shots that I'm liking and thought I'd post some up. I'm also trying to figure out some better ways to work with photos in this blog. Unfortunately Drupal Gardens won't allow me to do what I really want to do which is use a Lightbox viewer, which would darken the screen and bring up a larger version of the photo. So for now clicking on a photo will show the original sized photo stored on the site. It's not nearly as slick as the Lightbox way, but if you're wanting to view a photo larger it'll work for you.

This photo was taken shortly after sunset at Lake Merritt in Oakland, CA. I like the reflection of the office buildings in silhouette, the incoming clouds, and the sliver of the moon.
