If our world hadn’t been upended by the corona virus I would have been leading my second migratory bird workshop at Eldridge Park, but that was not to be. Even though I am not currently able to go gather a group and guide them through some wildlife photography I still kept faith with myself and went to Eldridge Park solo. It was cold but mostly sunny this morning. I thought I would… Read More

Runners have been training long and hard to run races, set PR’s, and take on new challenges. Then we were hit with the Corona Virus Pandemic. All events with large gatherings were cancelled. This meant all of our races were cancelled for the foreseeable future. Social distancing became the new normal. I think for many runners the initial news that races were being canceled was like a gut punch because so many… Read More

We are all going through a challenging time right now. There is a lot of uncertainty. Our daily routines have been disrupted and our way of life is turned upside down. The one thing we all need to remember is that we are all in this together and we need do what we can according to our means to look out for each other during this time. Here at KRNaturalPhoto I feel… Read More

Often in the early months of each new year I write about how the pursuit my goals went from the previous year. Then I subsequently write about what my goals are for the new year. And when I write about my goals I always write about two separate lists of goals. I list of goals was for my running goals and the other list of goals related to my photography. I am not doing… Read More

As we are becoming more aware of the potential health impacts of the Corona Virus it is becoming clear that we will have to adapt and change our behaviors and out lifestyles to some degree for the benefit of society as a whole. I big part of that is the cancelling of events and gatherings. I know many of us plan our lives around going to things or doing things that involve… Read More

Why run 100 miles? Well, it’s really hard to explain. The reasons are buried deep inside me and seem clear, but those same reasons are very hard to put into actual words especially into coherent thought out sentences that would seem sensible to most people. When most people hear that you are planning to or that you did run 100 miles they get this look on their face that indicates they think… Read More

This year has been the most challenging year of running for me yet. Not because I set big goals for myself, I mean yes because I set big goals for myself, but also because of other struggles. Going into this year, after running only two 50k’s I decided it was time to push myself farther and longer. First I decided that I would take on a 50 mile race. Later I decided… Read More

Saturday I take on a challenge that not only did I never think I would take on I never even knew such a thing existed. Even when I started running I wasn’t aware of anything beyond a marathon. Discovering the world of trail running and ultra marathons has been a mind blowing experience. I have gained so much since this adventure began. This year of training and running has been different in… Read More

Keep going. Keep Going. KEEP GOING!!!! Don’t stop. Don’t stop. DO NOT STOP!!!! These are the words that echoed in my head during the last half of the Worlds End 50K. Completing the Worlds End 50K under good conditions is no easy task. This year was made even more challenging by an injury I sustained earlier in the year, which I just could not resolve. The injury continued to nag me especially… Read More

Mid April I ran the Hyner View Trail Challenge. Ever since that race I have been nursing a nagging injury. It isn’t severe enough to keep me from running, but it does create some pain and discomfort on longer runs. It doesn’t seem to be getting worse when running, but it just doesn’t seem to be healing as quickly as I would like. Last week I had two races in one weekend… Read More
