What's a girl with a running/photography blog to do...when she's not running or taking photos! I finally have a flexible enough schedule to squeeze in some actual training miles and my doctor puts the kibosh on running until October. And I have an amazing, not to mention amazingly expensive, camera that I'm barely even using. It's a sad, sad state of affairs.
On the upside though, I've finally started making some decent progress on my master's project, I'm learning to love the elliptical machine, can swim two sets of 400 meters and...as of last weekend I'm an aunt! My brother and his wife had a beautiful little girl named either Sara or Gabriella, depending on which name they like better at any given moment. The best part is that this inspired me to take lots and lots of photos, including a few that could make a nice seed fund for my newborn photography portfolio once I move to St Louisan suburbia to try my hand at capitalizing on the local child-worship culture to support myself. I still hope to find some opportunities to actually commit photojournalism in my future life, but I'm realistic enough to know that life there is going to be very hectic for a while and student loans need to be paid off first.
