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. 

Wings of Freedom

As a kid I grew up hearing stories of how my dad lived through WWII. And most of the stars of these stories were the planes of WWII; the Spitfires, Mustangs, Hurricanes, and the numerous bombers. I was mesmerized by these stories as only a kid could be, and felt cheated that my childhood wouldn't have the same type of stories. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to view some of these planes in person though a group called Wings of Freedom. They tour around the country with a group of WWII planes, the P-51 Mustang, a B-17 Flying Fortress, and a B-24 Liberator. Today's shot is of the P-51 Mustang, or more accurately the TP-51C Mustang. A trainer (2 seater vs. the normal 1 seater) version of the American fighter plane.
