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 Bay Bridge

Usually thought of as the lesser Bay Area Bridge, the Bay Bridge (which connects Oakland and the East Bay to San Francisco) recently got some LED art installation. You can see more about it here. It's fun to watch and draws a large photography crowd most evenings. I took this at the oddly numbered Pier 14, which for some reason comes before Pier 1 and is the closest pier to the bridge. I think I'll try here again maybe for a panorama shot leading from Treasure Island/Yerba Buena Island (on the left) into San Francisco (cut off).
