Happy World Photography Day!!

Didn’t know if you knew this, but today is in fact World Photography Day!! Below is one of my favorite photos I’ve taken. It’s a self-portrait and it was a part of series I did entitled “The Personal Ad.” It actually was the first thing Ela, my now fiancee saw of me.

So, I hope you enjoy World Photography Day and keep snapping :)

Two NEW Goals by Jason Broaddus

I have decided I have two new long term personal goals:

1. Run in a marathon – this is something I’ve always wanted to do and I think I’m going to follow a plan out of the Dean Karnazes book “50/50: Secrets I Learned Running 50 Marathons in 50 Days” among some other books. I know it will take time, I will struggle and in the end it will be worth it. Plus it will help me get into good shape for the wedding!!

2. Learn to speak Polish – this is because my fiancee is Polish and she often speaks Polish to her parents and I’d like to join in the conversation. Also, I’ve ALWAYS wanted to learn to speak another language. Since Ela speaks Polish I have the perfect person to practice speaking my Polish!

I’ll keep you updated! If you have any suggestions to help me in my pursuits please let me know!!!

I also wanted to share this photo I captured at the 2010 Chicago Marathon of Richard Whitehead – wow talk about some inspiration…
