Memorial Day Weekend

I was up bright and early Saturday morning. Well, early… not so bright. I was awake before sunrise. I had a date with 2,000 other early birds for the 30th Annual Eglin Air Force Base Gate-to-Gate Run/Walk/Ruck. I’ve been there, done that before, and was excited to join in again.

The event, held Memorial Day weekend each year, is a way to remember our military members who died in service to our country. Participants were given red, paper poppies to leave at a tribute to Fallen Soldiers.

The route looped through part of the base for 4.4 miles, 8.8 miles for all the overachievers.

I finished the course at 1:08:50… not too shabby.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.
