One photo a day challenge: Day 257. Today was a very fun and interesting day of photography. I went on a short road trip with my dad to check out some photography subjects. The planned subjects for our photography were the type of subjects I generally do not shoot. It was interesting to make a plan to go out and stretch my creativity and work on some new subject matter. Our goal… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 242. I had a fun adventure today. Today I explored a trail that was new to me. Last year when I set out to explore some nature areas in Pennsylvania using my newly acquired Purple Lizard maps I learned about even more places I wanted to explore at some point. I was exploring the Pine Creek Rail Trail when I learned about the Golden Eagle Trail…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 51. I love nature. Being out in nature is one of the best things I am fortunate enough to experience. There are so many natural places I love. I have favorite places that I visit often. And there are places I don’t get to often enough. There are places I dream of going in far off places. There are also places right in my own back… Read More

I have been working more on my overall fitness of late, but my running has been taking more of a back seat than it has in the past. I probably have not run nearly as much as I have in winters past. Especially considering 2 of the past 4 years I have been training for ultras in the spring. Last year I was training for a half marathon PR. This year I… Read More

Thank you Tyoga Running Club. There are not many race that I have run three times. I am happy to call the Green Monster Trail Challenge… 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

Every time I take on new adventures I learn things. The bigger and more challenging the adventure the more you learn. The first time I took on an ultra distance run, I was alone on the Finger Lakes Trail, I learned a lot. Now taking on a much different more complex challenge I stood poised to learn even more. When you set off to go on any type of adventure ideally you… Read More

When I ran the Pine Creek Challenge 100 I knew that I had a great support team consisting of my wife and my closest running friends cheering me on and supporting me. What I did not realize is how many other peopl would be cheering me on and supporting me without me even knowing it that day. My crew is awesome. I knew they would take photos of me throughout the day… Read More

I headed down to the Pine Creek Rail Trail for my second training run on the site of the upcoming Pine Creek challenge 100 mile event in September. The plan was to start in Blackwell, where the end of the out and back section of the 100 mile distance is, and run back towards the start finish line area. The goal for this run was 20 miles at a little faster overall… Read More

It is now less than a month away. I will be lacing up to attempt to run 100 miles and this has been a crazy year for my running so far. I set bigger, higher, more challenging goals than I ever did before. I suffered my first running related injury, hip bursitis, which is still nagging me. I DNF’d my first attempt at 50 miles due to the heat. And in really… Read More
