When I Lose the Battle, But Not the War

It’s no secret that running has been a struggle for me ever since my most recent knee surgery. No, not because of my knee, but because of my heart. My small heart issue makes cardio difficult. When I condition my heart to get used to cardio aga...

Half Sleeve in Full Effect

Yesterday was an epic and kind of life changing day for me. I got my half sleeve tattoo done. So, technically not a full half sleeve since it doesn’t wrap around my entire upper arm, but close enough in my book. Here is one of the last pictures...

2015 Race Review

Looking back, I’m surprised that I ran a total of eight races this year. Off the top of my head, I could only name four. This was a very lax running year for me. I didn’t run all of the normal races that I have in years past, but 2016 is...

No More Waiting

I have done a lot of waiting in my life. I have waited to travel. I have waited to compete. I have waited to run my next marathon. I have waited for sublime happiness. I have waited to have children. I have waited for someone to love me unconditional...

Weekly Street Photos #38

This week's theme: RANDOM GROUP SHOTS Group shots,  particularly in street photography, (I believe) are some of the hardest photos to shoot. Even in the studio, taking photographs of people in groups must be timed precisely so that each person w...

This week's theme: OVERHEAD SHOT 2 (Color) Part 2 of last week's theme. I find the "Bird's Eye-View" of the world refreshing. It gives us a detached 'godlike' view of humanity from above, where we can observe ourselves more objectivel...
