Congratulations, I had no doubt you could do it. I am mostly through week 8 now, will finish it tomorrow. I have felt more tired through week 7 and 8 but think I am getting through that a bit. So just keep going . I do think I would say it gets harder but instead now it is just pushing while your body gets stronger. I am oddly getting the itch to run 4 days a week which hopefully if my body holds together for a few weeks of 3, 30 minute runs I will do. I'm not sure why now at 48 I've decided that running is a good thing but for now it is my thing I want to get better at.

Oh and you have a great view and I am a fan of the light minimalist design.

Finding that I can do a lot more with one photo in Lighroom 5 than I used to understand. I've gotten much closer to doing HDR work with one photo that I ever thought possible. 

This is a bike from Loose Cannon Fabrication at the Sacramento Easyriders Bike show. It is funny I know little about motorcycles but the minute I saw this bike I knew it was special, just amazing and different. It ended up winning best in show which I guess is second in a row for the designers. Current dream is to shoot this without all the event distractions not sure it will happen but hopefully

Thanks to watching just a couple very good tutorials by +Serge Ramelli  I managed to edit 1 photo in Lightroom 5 to look almost equal to what took me a 9 exposure HDR photo before. The HDR still might have a bit more detail here and there but for my 1st attempt at expanding what I can do with Lightroom I am really happy.

Congrats on finishing week 6. On Saturday I officially finished the program. I would love to say it got magically easier but like you have said those first 5 minutes are rough. I have found that each week I have gotten a tiny bit faster but much like you I am not worried about speed just getting consistent and more comfortable.

Even now I having completed the program i can't do 5k in 30 minutes. How I treated week 7 through 9 was to decide based on how I felt if I was after time or distance. So if the day said 28 minutes or 2.75 miles I would decide if I was having a good run at 28 minutes I would keep running until I got to 2.75 miles but if I felt bad I would stop at the time even though I was short of the distance.

Basically that meant in week 9, 2 days I ran 5k both times it took around 38 minutes. Mostly just listening to my body. My knees and quads tell me pretty quickly what the plan is for the day. For now I am planning to run a 5k race in a few weeks and then slowly keep upping my distance to be able to do 10k's in the fall.

I am really enjoying following along with you. A trip to Australia is on my bucket list so running Sydney harbor sounds amazing. Keep up the great work.

This video is amazing, as a photographer I know how much more I can do now than even when I got my first digital camera 10 years ago. Now looking at this video I expect that all of the shots in this video cost less to produce than it would have cost to do just one of them 10 years ago just because of how amazingly far camera and drone technology has come.

I have a quad with a GoPro and find new and interesting view to explore every day.  Love the new frontier of photography/videography.

Another before and after using only Lighroom 5 based on the +Serge Ramelli tutorials. Mostly a proof of concept. This was shot out my window at work this morning with my Fuji X100. I bought that camera to carry all the time since the Canon 7D is just a bit too much to have with me everyday. It is god to see that I can get a good amount of detail back in the Fuji raw files. I need  to work  on shooting photos specifically make use of the editing techniques but for now sunrises make mornings at work just a bit easier.

The Sundial Bridge in Redding is amazing but at least for me a huge challenge to photograph. I couldn't seem to find an angle to capture as much of it as I wanted but I did get some interesting shots.

In-N-Out is always reliable and this location despite being busy always seems to be quick. Great lunch after braving IKEA.

I've been here twice approximately 5 years apart. In a good news bad news twist the place was exactly the same both times. Literally nothing had changed in the intervening years including the decorative bottles behind the bar. But cheap stiff drinks in a place only the people you tell will find you can be attractive.

Great sandwiches and pasta, reasonable and fast. Can get busy during weekday lunches because of the proximity to many state offices so be prepared to go a bit early or a bit late. I am a huge fan of the Turino panini.

As good as any Chipotle but unfortunately this one gets knocked for having one of the top 5 worst parking lots I've had the displeasure of trying to park in. Everything about it is too narrow and there are at least 20 too few spaces. Pro-tip if desperate you can park on 15th Avenue behind the building and walk through the Mini Mart parking lot. Often a lot easier than fighting for that last space.

I want to love Miller Park, it is free, near the river, convenient to downtown, and right on the trail I run on often. However several of those pluses lead to minuses. There are often sketchy cars hanging out. While I've never really seen anything I've always had the distinct feeling that there is always something about to happen there. The second issue I've run into is the skunks. One trip a couple years ago to take photos at sunset was cut short when I ran into at least a dozen skunks. One greeted me at every turn and so I let them have their park and went on my way. That said if you need a place near downtown to sit in your car and eat lunch while watching the river it can be a nice place.
