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. 

Week 5 GPlus Project 52

This this wee's theme was eye, and though I had originally thought I'd try to get a shot of an animal's eye, life was busy enough to force me into taking a semi-self-portrait. Converted the unsightly image to black & white, then brought back the color of the eye. I kind of wish I had blue eyes, or any other color but brown, but such is life. Cropped it so there was less of me and more eye, and there you go. Is it one of my favorites? Nope, but it works, and is slightly more interesting than the original out of camera shot.
