Why do we get up at the crack of dawn, and sacrifice sleep in order to pound the pavement as the sun rises slowly in the sky? Why do we run outside in sub-zero temperatures, our hands going numb from the howling wind? Why do we run miles and miles, sometimes giving up our social lives while gaining nothing but blisters and broken bones? For this. For the feeling that your body and the earth are one— that you are more alive than you ever have been, and more so than you may ever be again. For the sake of the race. For the sake of the run.
The entire family is now on Facebook.

this cow is prettier than me
Dude someone once told me I look like a cow and I was like “omg really? Have you seen cows? Because I have and they’re fucking gorgeous and adorable, so thanks”
Fun fact: “cow-eyed” was often used to describe Hera’s beauty since the Athenians considered cows faces so beautiful.

Architectural Density in Hong Kong
With seven million people, Hong Kong is the 4th most densely populated places in the world. However, plain numbers never tell the full story. In his ‘Architecture of Density’ photo series, German photographer Michael Wolf explores the jaw-dropping urban landscapes of Hong Kong. He rids his photographs of any context, removing any sky or horizon line from the frame and flattening the space until it becomes a relentless abstraction of urban expansion, with no escape for the viewer’s eye. Infinite and haunting.
