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. 

The Fog Comes Rolling In (Photocentric) UPDATED

So Blogger has finally updated the way it handles photos. I'm not so sure that it's better than what I was using, but it's not bad. What's so different? When clicking on an image in one of my posts it will show the image in a Picasa viewer, very similar to the Lightbox viewer I coded into the site. It's not as elegant as what I had, but it's a darn sight better than what they had to begin with. I was kind of bummed about it at first because when it was first showing up my Lightbox and their viewer both opened giving essentially 3 layers (the original page, my Lightbox, their viewer) and the user had to close two of them to get back to the page. Thankfully I just needed to take out a bit of code put in the template to get everything working again.

Todays shot is a companion to this shot that I shot earlier this month. Originally I didn't like because it was too colorful, but now I like the different feel of the shot.

Update: Of course after I blog about the changes Blogger made to viewing photos Blogger went and changed things back the way they were before. I tested it this morning and it showed the nice viewer, then sometime today it went to their old way of viewing. I've updated the site to show pictures in my Lightbox. Sorry for any confusion.
