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 Weekly Photo Project for 2013

After a successful 2012 of following a 52 week project over on Google+ I was looking for another to do. I was half expecting The old group I was in to just carry over into 2013, but turns out I was wrong. And, as the saying goes, if you want something done you're better off doing it yourself. For 2013 I will be helping to run a 52 week project over at +Weekly Photo Project 2013 with a couple other great curators; +Andrew Willard and +Tiina Niskanen. This is a great low stress way to shoot throughout the year be it a full sized DSLR, a point and shoot, or your trusty phone. Head on over to the page to check out the details and share with your friends. 

I might be biting off more than I can chew as I will also be doing a black & white 52 week project, +Project 52 B&W. And still posting weekly photos outside of these projects. As for the blog postings I don't expect much to change. I might just make Monday my project posting day, so two photos, and Thursday my other photo of the week. I have hopes of doing other non-photography related posts, but we'll see how it goes. We'll see how this goes!
