When you are a runner you eventually become enveloped by an amazing community of people. Near the end of 2019 a fellow runner created a Facebook page for a group challenge of running or walking a given mile each day and it was going to go from Thanksgiving through the New Year. Participants could choose a distance they wanted to maintain through the challenge from a minimum of 1 mile a day… Read More
I am half way through week 4 of my training plan with one short run and my first 16 mile run of the plan left for the week. Trying not to stress about the numbers during training this year as my goal race is a long way off and little differences won’t have an impact. I’ve only had one run where I really did not feel like running. Otherwise training has been… Read More
I woke up in the morning the day before the race and just could not get out of bed. I was so anxious. I couldn’t get out of bed and get the day underway. I just lay in bed thinking and trying to get a little more rest. There wasn’t anything much to be done. Finish packing the car and drop off our dogs at the kennel, then drive down to Pennsylvania… Read More

This weeks long run in my training plan called for… Read More

The winter weather in Upstate, NY has been a bit brutal in January. I was really hoping for a milder winter like we have had the past few years during which to train for my first trail marathon and 50k. Last week I ran my long run of 14 miles on a treadmill. Something I never thought I would do. This week I was determined to run outside. Yesterday the temperature was… Read More
Here is a randomly chosen photo from the time lapse series I shot back in July at the Finger Lakes 50’s 25k I ran. Not the smudge on the left side of the frame from the water droplet on the lens. It was a bit wet and rainy that day. Just a little.
I am trying to sort and edit some of the many photos that still remain in my backlog. I finished one events worth of photos from last month. Now I have moved on to something farther in the past. Some Lure Coursing from 2014. That is where the last two photos are from. Enjoy me editing my past. The camera just loves this dog.
