A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words -- Check Out These Images!

At the end of my last blog writing, I included links to online photo albums that contain pictures from my running adventures across states and countries. Surprisingly, my blog statistics jumped as people followed those links -- although the photos have been available through my website at www.paulstaso.com for many years.

When I was doing school assemblies, an often-asked question was, "Who takes all of the pictures of you when you're on the road?" The simple answer is me. I would use a timer on a digital camera and occasionally use a small tripod to hold the camera steady, particularly on windy days. I would give myself about 10 seconds to get into the frame and would just hope that the scene was captured. Some of the photos in my albums were taken by others, such as when I did the Alaska run and my mother photographed me from a distance in order to include the vastness of Alaska's mountains and wilderness. However, I can say that I've taken about 95 percent of my photos.

In case you've missed seeing the photos, you can click on any of the links below to view the albums.
