3 Days, 3 Winter Photo Expeditions

There must be something photogenic about the snow. For the third day in a row, I found myself out making winter videos, taking winter pictures, and generally enjoying the cold weather with a GoPro camera fastened to something or other. On Friday, I ventured out into the cold and took a “Let’s Run” video on the icy trails. On Saturday, I took the GoPro running again, but this time made use of the Gorillapod to prop it up in various snowbanks and do some staged running pics. And then today, Sunday, I took Claire and her cousins sledding on the big hill and took some pretty awesome sliding footage, including one of my father-in-law blowing a tire at full speed on the hill: as of right now that clip’s got about twenty-five likes on Facebook. But now I figure that if it takes a cold winter weekend to motivate me to do this kind of outdoor photo effort, I’ll take a few more days of chill, thanks.

Find an excuse to go outside.

Contemplating the Annual Goal

There are, essentially, two weeks (counting today) until the end of 2015. Each year I set an annual goal for my distance. If this is a good practice or not, I can’t say; But it keeps me running, especially on a day like today. As I sit here in the cafe typing, on my Friday off, feeling the chill of the minus twenty air coming through the glass of the nearby window, I’m contemplating my goal. I’m contemplating that I have another forty klicks to run in the next two weeks in order to meet my goal. And I’m contemplating that I really need to find a way to do a run today –despite the weather. I think a deep, contemplative sigh would be appropriate here.

...tickets to the new Star Wars movie. And popcorn, of course.

Writing is sometimes turning off the filter between the narrative in your brain and the fingers typing on the keyboard. It doesn't guarantee good results, but it gets things done.
