Seriously…have you all been on facebook lately (or twitter…I’m sure this crap is on twitter too)…if I see ONE more picture of a facebook friend wearing a paper number taped to their stomach, smiling smugly at a cell phone camera, their cheeks a rosy glow of health and vitality…I will lose it. I can’t handle it…I know it’s partly jealousy…jealous that I can’t (read: won’t) run unless I’m being chased…and even then, I might have to stop my assailant and ask for a quick ‘time out’ so I can catch a breather. But part of it is just confusion. WHY does everyone love to run? When did this become the ‘thing to do’ on the weekends? Can I see more pictures of people lying on the couch on a Saturday morning? Because I’m comfortable seeing that…I GET that…it’s fun, it’s relaxing, and nobody is going to pass out in a sweaty heap from lying on the couch. Hmmm…maybe this is a cry for help. My sub-conscious wants to see me run like the wind…but my own self-doubt and lack of motivation keeps beating me down. Dang it, NO. I just don’t want to run. Please stop reminding me that I suck. The next friend of mine to enter any type of running event: don’t share a picture of yourself…unless it’s a shot of you curled up in the fetal position, tears streaming down your face, the finish line still miles down the road. The caption can read: “Crap, sometimes trying to be cool hurts”. And then you can go to the bar, and take the ever popular ‘smile with your cocktail’ picture…because that’s a trend that everyone can relate to.
Allright, that was a semi-hostile vent…my apologies! Let’s move on to the last chunk of mini-session images from last fall! We were blessed with the most amazing weather last fall…The color in my backyard was perfect…I had 2 weeks of awesome color, and the mini’s fell right in the middle of it!
