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.

Winter is making it's presence known with grey skies, and rain. I don't mind it when it rains and storms, but daily grey weather is kind of depressing. So with that mindset I came across this photo that I shot back in May(!) that, to be honest, doesn't come close to capturing what I saw. It wasn't a rainbow it was a streak. It took a lot of work to really bring out the streak, and in some ways I'm still not 100% happy with this. I don't know if it's an equipment issue, user issue (most likely) or not having the proper training/tools in post processing, but after far too long I've gotten it here. It's close to what I saw, but still lacking. Either way it'll be a good reminder that blue skies do still exist, just have to wait until May!
