Finally with the Red

Daily Photo

On my hike today, a successly lovely Zone 1 and Zone 2 hike, I had to stop to take a picture of these red flowers. I usually skip red anything in nature because the camera, any, all cameras, just doesn't capture reds well. This image is closer than most, I'm happy to say.

One Week In


Well, I'm one week in on this 82 week training plan, and I have to say, wow, having a trainer is surprisingly motivating. I hadn't quite understood how much having accountability for training and really, really, really not wanting to waste (lose) the money I'm paying for the trainer would motivate me. Historically, that accountability would come from my teammates, I don't want to let them down, but I seriously lack a team these days. Perhaps that "not letting them down" was too much of a motivating factor, I'm not sure. I'd like not to disappoint myself in particular, which means putting in the work now, for the success later.
