hooks and nature – a perfect combo!

it may be my last post for a while (or maybe not), so let’s take a look at this:

The video is a lil weird, I do admit, but the article attached to it 😉 is certainly worth reading. Maybe you won’t agree with all the words and maybe you’d like to rephrase the experience itself with your own words but it’s too beautiful and amazing to just simplify and condemn it!

book review: Bled for Boston

bled for boston

If you are a runner, marathon holds a special meaning for you. You may have run it tens of times already or you’re thinking about doing it for the first time ever but, granted, once you start running and feeling how your body becomes fitter and fitter, you also start thinking about venturing outside your comfort zone and facing the Marathon Beast!

Among countless marathon events held every year all around the globe, the Boston Marathon is very special! It’s the oldest modern marathon race; you can’t just sign up and go for it, you have to earn the right to run it; it’s a legend on its own!

What happened on April 15, 2013 shocked pretty much everyone, not only runners! But you can’t stop or break a runner, so no wonder that soon after the bombings Bostonians and their supporters started helping one another, fund raising and just showing that no matter what, the race is still on!

Christopher Padgett, an American photographer, stepped out and recorded people’s stories, sacrifices, losses and strength and presented it in a book ‘Bled For Boston.’ It’s a moving collection of photographies of people who were witnesses of a tragedy and whose lives were changed. They wrote down their stories by means of their Boston tattoos and grew even stronger!

The only downside of the book? It’s too short!
