On Running

I started running last weekend. I read an article somewhere about starting off so small that it's almost laughable, and not pushing yourself too far in the beginning. So that's what I'm doing.

I decided to start by running only 10 minutes each day. I don't run fast, I (clearly) don't run far. I run at a pace that's comfortable for 10 minutes, and then I stop. And for now, that's enough. I want to learn to LOVE running, and the less I HATE running to begin with, the better chance I think I'll have in the long run.

By this time next year I would like to do a Triathlon by myself. Not a crazy full-length one, but maybe an Olympic length. By the end of April next year I would like to be able to run a 10K without a second thought.

Oh, and remember that goal I had of being in the best shape of my life for my 30th gift to myself? Yeah... that's not going well. But loving running is going to get me on my way.

School update

In case any of you were wondering, I still love school. (What I am currently NOT loving is working until 10 every night, but that is going to change next semester).

I love certain aspects of each of my classes, but I feel like I've learned the most so far in my photography class. Not that I'm an expert, by any means. But I feel like I've learned a few things that have really helped me improve.

Here are some of the photos I've taken up to this point:

Until next time...
