I didn’t take these pictures obviously, but I can share them because of the wonderful photography of Joey Schrichte. He took a gazillion wonderful photos of the race (and lots of other mountain races).
I’m not sure why I feel like this. It’s not like something bad happened.
My cat and dog didn’t die. My wife and children love me. I have my health. Food to eat. Books to read. Music to listen to.
What I’ve discovered though is when I do feel this way, I need to exercise. More specifically go for a run. I need to move each and every day to feel alive and connected to world and not feel like driving my car into a wall or off a cliff.
1 mile warm-up

Cool down back to the house
Somedays I feel like the Universe hates me for no particular reason.
I just feel bad and nothing snaps me out of it.
Documentary photographer Lauren Greenfield was trying to form trusting relationships with members of a Mayan tribe in Mexico in the early 1990s when she picked up a discarded copy of Bret Easton Ellis’s Less Than Zero. Before she’d finished the cult novel – which charts the parties, drug taking and sex lives of rich college kids in Los Angeles – Greenfield had decided to swap photography subjects from the Maya of Chiapas to the rich kids of her home town.
“DATA SLAVERY.” Jennifer Lyn Morone, an American artist, thinks this is the state in which most people now live. To get free online services, she laments, they hand over intimate information to technology firms. “Personal data are much more valuable than you think,” she says. To highlight this sorry state of affairs, Ms Morone has resorted to what she calls “extreme capitalism”: she registered herself as a company in Delaware in an effort to exploit her personal data for financial gain. She created dossiers containing different subsets of data, which she displayed in a London gallery in 2016 and offered for sale, starting at £100 ($135). The entire collection, including her health data and social-security number, can be had for £7,000.
