Its funny how something you were completely unaware of for along time can become one of your favorite things. Growing up we were a fairly outdoorsy and active family. We went camping and visited some state parks. But it is crazy to realize how much you don’t know that you don’t know regarding the wide variety of outdoor experiences that exist. I didn’t discover that we have this amazing trail system that… Read More

I love to run. If I have my choice I choose to run trails. Often I take a camera with me. There are things I can see out on a trail adventure that I may not see any other time. I may explore in ways on a run that I don’t other times. Longer, farther on the trail. Not where I would normally think to go with my camera. A couple years… Read More

I love going out exploring and finding just a little something unexpected. When we think of flowers we often think of beautiful flower gardens. Wildflowers growing in an open field. Other wildflowers growing along the forest floor often along a path or trail. But nature is full of surprises. Plants and flowers are hardier than we expect. This Trillium flower is growing out from between the roots of a large tree that… Read More

I am loving this race season. So many new experiences for me. And this one racks up one more. I toed the line at Lucifer’s Crossing. Lucifer’s crossing is a race put on by Red Newt Racing. I have been aware of this race for some time. One year I went and spectated and photographed the race one year because a bunch of my friends were running it. I just never really… Read More

I love to explore new places. Especially on trails. One exploration project I have undertaken over the years has been to try and explore as much of the Finger Lakes Trail as I can. I would love to see the entire Finger Lakes Trail eventually. And that is my goal. To slowly but surely set foot on every part of the Finger Lakes Trail. I started on the trails nearest where I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 343. Recently I went for a hike. And I went out for a very specific reason. I wanted to scout out an area I wanted to photograph. The reason I was doing this was so I would know how long a hike it would be to get there when I went with heavier equipment. Well, that day I did not find the location I was looking… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 243. Today I spent the day photographing different areas along the Finger Lakes Trail. The Finger Lakes Trail is an amazing and beautiful trail here in upstate, New York. The are many places I have been fortunate enough to run on the trail. These places are so beautiful. They deserve to be photographed. I have not had as many opportunities to photograph these places as I… Read More

Two years ago as part of my build up to my first 100 mile race I put the Finger Lakes 50’s, 50 mile race on my schedule. This year I was traning for my second 100 mile race. This 100 mile race is at the end of July so has the potential to be quite warm. Planning to train for a potentially hot 100 mile race. I wanted to gain experience running… Read More

I set out on a training run with a specific goal in mind. The goal had nothing to do with pace or really even distance. It had to do with the route I chose to run. I chose to run a specific route because I wanted to connect two sections of trail that I have run before. Finger Lakes Trail One of my favorite places to run is the Finger Lakes Trail…. Read More

I haven’t written much about my training or running this year. This run however was a little bit of a different experience so I thought I would take a minute to write about it. My training plan was calling for a 22 mile long run on trails. This is good because my biggest races are all on trail and I really have not spent much time running on trails this year. What… Read More
