My plan for my racing season is coming to the close. The final race in the Finger Lakes Running club’s Trail Circuit is Danby Down and Dirty. And Danby down and dirty was the final race on my schedule that I knew I was going to run this year. Danby Down and Dirty Danby Down and Dirty offers two race distances. This year the race features a 23k distance for the long… Read More

Last year I attempted the Mighty Mosquito solo 100 mile race. I was fortunate enough to be crewed and paced by a great group of people. This year I am back at the same venue. And I am here seeing many of the same great faces. However there is one big important difference. As much as to me running a 100 mile race is a team accomplishment where only 1 person gets… Read More

I love that Tangelwood Nature Center regularly holds trail races. This is really the only trail race that is in my backyard. And I love these trails. I have run trail races at Tanglewood twice. Once was my very first trail race. And I ran on the trails here when I first began to think about getting into running. These are the trails I most regularly visit. Equal parts beauty and challenge….

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….

Will I be the tortoise or will I be the hare? Pretty sure I won’t be the hare, but I am feeling a little swifter than a tortoise these days. It’s time for the next Finger Lakes Running Club trail race. This event is the Tortoise & Hare Trail Run, which has a distance of apx 10k. You know trail distances. It’ll be kinda close. This is the fourth race in the… Read More

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

If you have read my blog before this may sounds like a broken records, but I really love running. What do I love about running? Well, just that, the running. The fact that running can really be just about anything. I love the variety that is available through running. Variety in distances, in surfaces, types of events, scenery, comradery and everything in between. I am rarely satisfied with repeating the same things… 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
