If you hang out with the bad boys long enough, you'll eventually find out about chocolate-covered bacon.

This summer I ran 400 miles (or, from Denver to Santa Fe on I-25) to attempt to finish a 26.2-mile race in one go. It happens this weekend!
I don't know why I keep running. Maybe it's because I'm too much of a sissy for any major contact sport out there. Maybe it's because I'm part Mexican-Indian, maybe it's simply because I'm human and I enjoy getting back to my roots.
What I do know, is that it's possible.
I'll be so glad to cross "Run a marathon" off my bucket list for this year. I'm looking forward to getting my social life back (it takes a long time to run these miles, people!). I'll be glad to have something other than RUNNING dictating my schedule. I'll be glad to fully concentrate on my business. And to be able to just enjoy the holidays.
Major props to Hal Higdon and his novice training schedule for marathons. It works perfectly for someone who's never ran more than a half-marathon. Go get it!

At Hilary & Tim's wedding this summer, I had a feeling that when I started spying on these two with my little spy lens (Canon's 85mm f/1.8), I'd see this couple again. And it turned out that they got engaged right after, and here we are, in the midst of my favorite season of the year, taking engagement pictures before their December wedding.
Guanella Pass was closed about three miles up the winding road, so we raced the setting sun for Breckenridge, where I knew there'd be a million more yellow trees.
Anand was born and raised in India, but has spent the past twelve years in the US. He's an effervescent soul. Lindsey is a sweet gal with a beautiful grace about her (thanks for listening to me jabber on about cameras and why the leaves change color all the way up and down I-70!).
Their wedding will be one for the record books. It'll have the largest number of guests, as well as the largest wedding party ever in my career. They're taking friends-and-family to the next level. It's going to be epic!
But that's not what I'm most excited about.
On top of all that, it's going to be my first Hindu wedding. Well, a Catholic wedding with Hindu traditions woven in here and there. They are literally going to tie the knot, and there will be turquoise saris.
And the ceremony will be held at a very amazing venue here in Denver; I've wanted a photograph there for the longest time. Serious colors coming my way! And yours.
More Colorado autumn madness on this here blog right quick. Stay tuned...
