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

Two aspects of running that I love are exploring nature and testing myself. Running the Hills Creek Endurance Challenge was going to give me the chance to do both. The Hills Creek Endurance Challenge takes place at Hills Creek State Park in Pennsylvania. The event is a 3 mile trail loop. There are options to run the loop for 3, 6, or 12 hours. I have only ever run one other timed… 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

I spent some time today trying to relearn what I had previously learned how to do in Photoshop. At one point I had learned how to create a composite image from several shots that I took at a race I photographed. I was able to create an image that I really liked but I did not keep in practice with doing it and forgot how to do it. So, now I get… Read More

I have now run 7 half marathons but this last one I ran might just be the one that means the most to me. I ran my first 5k around 6 years ago and my foray into running dates to before that time. I never really thought I would have a chance to experience what I did in this last race and it was truly special to me. When I started running… 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

Here are some media clips I created from footage I captured during my running of the 2019 Hyner View Trail Challenge.

In 2018 a group of my friends were all registered for the Hyner Trail Challenge in PA. I was not registered for the race, but had heard my friends talk about it. I was interested in the event and I wanted to see what the hype was all about. So I joined them for a group training run at Hyner to run 14 miles of the 16 mile course. It was really… Read More

Training for my first 50 mile race continues. I have several races built in as more serious training runs essentially prior to my 50 mile race. I “planned” other races into my training before I reach my date with a 50 miler, but I will admit most of them were not particularly strategic. They are more that I just want to run that race.  I am a little under a month away… Read More

I have been trying to volunteer at some of the races I photograph. Usually my volunteer duties keep me stationed at the race start line and then I can head out to photograph the race before it starts. For this edition of the Southern Tier Running Club Red Baron Half Marathon I volunteers to help with course set up. This entailed putting cones and signs along the entire 13.1 mile course. I… Read More
