52 week 15 - Earth

This past weekend I challenged myself to the core.  I ran a 5k race fill with obstacles, mud, grit, water and fire.  There was no music, no chaos, just the sound of my breathing as I felt the earth beneath my feet.  To be in the forest, to swim through the lakes, to crawl through the mud I felt the earth all around.  For 42 minutes we were one.  And I loved every minute of it. 

This photo was taken after I got home, that evening, washing off what stood beneath me and the elements.  I can't wait to do it again. 

  Now head on over to  the blog of Courtney Allison - Temecula Wedding Photographer -   see what earthly things are going on over there.
