Inspired by a practice established by my father, every day I send a Photo of the Day (POD), taken with my iPhone, to interested friends and family. I also write about why I chose it and how I edited it on my phone. I hope it encourages others to also be mindful and aware.

What Sunscreen’s For

For two years I resisted the inclinations of many female runners here to a) run with a hydration backpack, and b) to shield every shred of skin with clothing, even in the heat of summer. I recently broke down and got a hydration pack, and I actually love it, especially on days like today when I found myself on a trail run in the late morning blazing sun that lasted almost three hours (not the original plan). But you will never catch me in tights and a long sleeved shirt in summer here. My friend, on the other hand, is a beast.
