SAMPLING OF PICTURES TAKEN ON RUNS OR WALKS, MORNINGS AND EVENINGS, 2015 THROUGH 2018. (updated from October 14, 2017) The exception is the image of the Mackinac Bridge; to view it from this perspective I needed to be on a tour boat! There are too many memorable images to post them all, but this year's selection shows roughly a progression through the seasons from October to October. They are taken from all the years but not necessarily in chronological order.
It became apparent early on, as the website was being built and the blog posts written, that the need to find images opened my eyes to the beauty awaiting me on everyday runs and walks, both at home and while away visiting. Now, one of the highlights of a business or family trip is the hunt for interesting photo opportunities. There are less people out and about early and late in the day, so there isn't much need to ask permission to use images.
The surprise is that the most familiar places may suddenly reveal hidden visual gems at just the right time. Like the unexpected glint of a rising or setting sun reflected off a natural or structural surface. A prism of color, plume of fog, or a frosty coating created by atmospheric vapor on a hazy or brightening day. Headlights or brakes lights of vehicles. Vibrant colors that don't show themselves in full daylight, best appreciated when the sun doesn't dominate the scene. And glowing light that is most precious because it is momentary, scarce, distant, or small.

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
