Weekly Photography Challenge: Contrast

3 Jul

Once again a photograph from my run.  Can you tell I am spending more time training to run than taking photographs lately. This one was taken on an evening run, so the shade created even more contrast.

That is in large part because I am signed up for the Girlfriends half marathon in October, which is affiliated with Komen Race For the Cure. I have not done a half before,  in fact my first 5k was just this past St. Patrick’s Day.

I have a running partner now and she is good at pushing me,  which is great.  So we signed up for this run in part because we needed a run,  and also because I lost my best friend to breast cancer at 29.

I also have another friend who had been diagnosed recently and is now going through treatment.  I like the idea of raising funds for a cure,  but I also wanted to help her raise funds for uncovered expenses. 

My Grandma has also had breast cancer twice, so I think this is a fitting run all in all.

Needless to say,  my mind has been on running lately.

    Love the dreamy feel to this photo. On another note, you are really taking up a great cause!! My mom was diagnosed in the 1970’s at age 47 and died of the disease at age 59 in the 1980’s when detection and treatment were not as sophisticated as today. I feel fortunate to have made it to my 60’s with no evidence of the disease :) Kudos to you and your friends !!

    Great that you are taking this on. Best of luck for the half marathon, then, it’s quite the challenge!
