April 10: And Yet, All that Glitters Is Not..

This morning I hit 900 miles in my 1,000 mile year. It's kind of cool, because today is the last day of the ninth month in this year - so I am running rather exactly 100 miles a month.

 

I'm trying to take it easy post-halfmare....but I gotta say that taking a week off of running? I was a grump. Nobody likes a grumpy Brigid.

 

I was trying to do a more athletic photo to mark the occasion, but I didn't like what the photos were looking like, so this is what you get. I thought my arms looked a bit like wings. I'm reading a book right now (A Need so Beautiful) about a girl who is sort of an angel and her skin is peeling away to reveal all this gold beneath the surface of her. I love that image, so I was planning to do a photo with that concept....since this was already angellie, I figured why not go gold on the processing here.

 

....I may still try to do a more literal image of the book imagery though later this week.
