New trails are almost always the best trails. This is never more true for me than in this year. On my quest to do a lot of new to me running I have been fortunate enough to log so many miles in places I have not run or raced before. I have been wanting to run the FLRC trail circuit for years. But year after year a commitment to a race I… Read More

So here we are again. Time for the Finger Lakes 50’s trail races. This was my 4th time running in this event. My first time going in for the 25k version since 2017. Back in 2017 the Finger Lakes 50s 25k was my first ever 25k distance. And this has been a wild and crazy ride to return back here for my second go at the 25k distance here at finger Lakes 50s….

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 don’t run a lot of road races, but I like to run a half marathon each year. For me the half marathon is the perfect distance on the road. It really hits the sweet spot. Just the right amount of challenge no matter how you are approaching it. Apparently Skunk Cabbage Classic by the Finger Lakes Running Club has become my annual tradition. It is not a particularly easy course and… Read More

I usually have a standing rule. No races in the winter. It’s not that I don’t run in the winter I just like to choose the conditions in which I run instead of running in whatever winter throws at me on race day. The one winter race I remember signing up for prior to this year, the weather ended up being so bad that our whole group that was planning to go… Read More

One of my favorite things about running is that there is really just about endless variety and options available if you are open to it. I love to do new things. There are just so many aspects of running that one can tweak or change to shake things up differently. Add in more joy when things are getting a little stale by doing something different.   Ran first 12 hour timed event As… Read More

Live racing is always fun. It was a lot of fun to photograph this event. I love seeing all the runners enjoying time out on the roads. People pushing themselves. Families and friends running together. People smiling and even people looking determined to finish. There are all great things about running. You can follow the link below to Facebook gallery I have created. Feel free to share the photos with your friends…. Read More

I spent all year training for this one event. Speed Work. Hill Repeats. Weekend long runs. Mid-week long runs. Back to back long runs. Cross training. Cycling. Yoga. Strength Training. Core work. All the time I spend putting my feet on the ground. One foot in front of the other. All the hours of hard work. All the time slowly progressing towards this day. I am thankful to all my friends who… 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

Starting of my January one photo a day challenge. The goal is to take at least one photo every day for the month of January. Then share one of the phots I take each day here on the blog. The only restriction I am giving myself is that the phot must be taken with a camera other than my cell phone camera. What a way to start off a new year. 13.1… Read More
