Who ever would have thought?

I was never athletic. I mean I smoked for years and years. I was the artsy, hippie girl. I never, ever thought of running unless it was running away from my problems. Yet here I am, 28 years old and I run. I run to keep my depression at bay. I run to stay in shape. I run to stomp out all my frustrations. I run because it's a way to be alone. I run because I love to challenge myself... I have a love hate relationship with running. Some days it's hard to get going. Some days it's hard to finish. Some days I cant wait to hit the pavement. Most days it's just something I have to do.

I might not be as strong and as tuff as the rest of the Atencio clan but I am doing the best that I can. Classical music. That's the key. It keeps me going.

Today my friend Jennifer and I went to Liberty Park to take some pictures. We have decided that this will be our summer of photography. She is going to be my partner in crime! Together we are going to go on fun photography adventures and help each other learn and grow. And in the fall we are going to school together.

Today was fun. Even though we were in the same place we saw different things! Here are just a few of mine a'la Black and White.
