My stats are down a bit this week from last but I expected it. Instead of trying to walk as much as possible each day I have decided to shoot for consistency and attempt 20,000 steps each day (about 10 miles). I was able to do this for every day except Sunday where I walked just under 10,000 steps.
Sundays, when I looked back at my step history, have always been a low step day and that makes sense. I think I will not ‘worry’ about it and make Sunday my rest day and only shoot for 10,000 steps on that day.
The 2014 Richland Invitational is over. I was at the course for about 5 hours. Took 3500+ photos and according to my fitbit I walked just over 4 miles.
I have loaded all the photos into Lightroom and now I will sort the photos into their appropriate race folders, delete the blurry shots, and do whatever else it takes to get these photos online.
Ready (sort of) for the Richland Bombers Invite!
Last year I published a little over 7500 photos from this event. I am going to try to cut back a bit this year but not sure how successful I will be.
On the map above I have marked the locations I plan to shoot from to capture the race. Last year I believe I came down the hill from shot 3 and shot the kids as they made the corner to go up the hill. Cutting that out should help.
The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.

When this line was spoken in the book, a light went off in my head and I realized that many of the books I enjoy are not just a story but instead force me to think/rethink my own presuppositions and world view.
Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soiless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter.
It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor that transform ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men trade kingdoms for Shardblades. Wars were fought for them, and won by them.
One such war rages on a ruined landscape called the Shattered Plains. There, Kaladin, who traded his medical apprenticeship for a spear to protect his little brother, has been reduced to slavery. In a war that makes no sense, where ten armies fight separately against a single foe, he struggles to save his men and to fathom the leaders who consider them expendable.
