It’s Embarrassing How Out Of Shape I Am

My Embarrassing Tale At The Gym

5k Run - Crossfit - wwwp5k - RawMultimedia Photography

Wow, that was really embarrassing today, I pulled off the slowest 5k run I have ever did in my life…  As I tried to do a 5k run in the gym on the treadmill to contribute to WordPress /Automattic Worldwide WP 5k (#WWWP5k), I pulled off the worse timing ever.  I finished poorly with a 37 min estimated completion time.  I was like dang, I am out of shape.  I usually knock out a 5k run under 30 minutes (on average 24-27 minutes).  There wasn’t anyone there at the gym to be embarrassed by, I was just embarrassment in myself.  How did I let my fitness get this far off.

It’s been almost 3-4 weeks since I been in the gym.  Work had been eating up my time, until I had to make some really serious life decisions about my career, health and future.  I just came upon a new job and had to start letting go of all the distractions and tell many friends and family member a lot of Noooo’s.  I just can’t help them right now.  I have lost a bit of focus on myself.  Me trying to do this 5k run which is never such a struggle to me was proof I was seriously off my game.

Either way, today is day one of the Annual Event in which anyone in the whole can do.  Just complete a 5k run (aka 3.1 Miles) between October 26 – November 1, and you are a winner in life.  My goal this year to whip myself back into shape is to do a 5k run everyday for the week time frame from Oct. 26 – Nov. 1.  It’s going to be brutal.  I plan on taking a different sneaker out the closet for my run each day to represent me making my stride to a 5k run a day to get myself and life back in shape.

Have you ever ran a 5k?

Would you start on this annual worldwide 5k run or walk starting this year?

Let me know your thoughts…

THE NEW YORKER SKYLINE x PORTRAIT

NEW YORKER | SKYLINE

Such a retro feel,
I love the sight I see,
I appreciate the art,
I enjoy everything it brings…

new yorker skyline x Portrait - RawMultimedia Photography Art and Life Photographer nyc

While out and about in New York City, coming from a the annual Photo Plus Expo at the Jacob Javitz Center, NY, I captured this image with my iPhone 6 plus and loved it.  I already seen the art adaptions I wanted to create with it. The buildings looked like a comic book from a Marvel origin.  I am not like the craziest comic book fan, but after seeing so many of those movies, I think I am right up there with the boldest and wildest of them all.

I literally had 20 seconds to capture this photo as I am rushing to grab some food at what happened to be a local Subway (yea, eat fresh…), I was like giving myself a challenge to capture an art piece of the city that many people have probably since being on the west side of New York.  There are many amazing gems of locations in that area in which I plan to venture to this coming autumn and winter season, in my many hopes to bring a lot of exclusive to everyone who views my website.
