This has been a very interesting experience for me. I have never taken on a course and tried to run it faster and faster over a period of time before. Outside of the few exceptions of some races I have run multiple times over the years, but there aren’t many of those. Running one route 6 times in one month. Trying to get faster and faster each time. This is new. Do… Read More
I always have my eyes open for any running or outdoor adventures going on. So, I was really excited when I stumbled across the post from Tanglewood Nature Center introducing Run For The Hills! Even better than that was reading about a fellow runner that was excited about the same trails I was and was trying to make an impact to help support our local nature center through Ben’s Long Run. I… Read More
I love running the Red Trail at Tanglewood. It is probably my favorite trail. I am really enjoying this challenge of running it at a fast pace. It is different than most of my runs here.
Today I ran the Red Trail at Tanglewood Nature Center. This was my third attempt at running my fastest time on that loop. I had a decent time on my first attempt. On my second attempt I shaved some time off. I thought maybe I could get even a little bit faster. On my third attempt I went out a little later in the day than I would like to because I… Read More
Tanglewood Nature Center is one of my favorite places to get out and experience nature. I first ran the trails there when my brother, a few friends and I decided to take on a mud run. I ran my first ever trail race on the trails of Tanglewood. That was the first step to developing the passion for trail running I share with so many now.

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
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
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
