Sometimes attending an event is about taking photographs, capturing it, sometimes attending an event is about the event. This was about the event. The photos, I hope, tell the story in spite of that. A small town, remembering lives lost and honoring the greater principles that give those sacrifices meaning.
There really is nothing better than a sunny spring day on the trails photographing Ultra Runners! Especially when I get to bring my son as an assistant. here are a few of my favorites. There's a collection of about 200 on Peak's Facebook page.
Two great takeaways for me personally in this week’s Spartan Up Podcast with Yanik Silver . The first is a simple but brilliant way to understand what it is you truly love to do - ask yourself “what would I do even if I knew it would fail?” The second is to experiment with your life. Try something for 33 days. See how it feels, if it feels good then keep it. With that in mind, I am on day two of a morning journal. Thanks, Yanik. www.Spartan.com/194
On March 27th I was envious of the "pause" to reassess and learn I kept hearing about. I was fortunate enough to still be working, so I committed to a more active blog. This is my chance to think out loud about podcasting, messaging, story, nature, family and life.
