I have gone out and pursued more photography with a purpose this year than I ever have in the past. In the past I would go out and generally just search for something interesting to photograph. Then once I found a subject and photographed it I would come home and have to figure out what to do with those photographs. This year more than any other year I have had more of… Read More
Why Run? For exercise. For fun. For peace. For solitude. For energy. For fitness. For health. For a cause. For friends. To see new things. To have new experiences. To be part of a community. To share in something. Who cares why, just run.
We have always enjoyed camping but we had never taken a dog camping before. That is until we added this fun guy to our family. Caspian presented some challenges so we decided if we wanted to take a trip our only real option was to take him with us. Little did we know the world of fun he would open up to us. Caspian loved playing in the water at Allegany State… Read More
This year I have been focusing mostly on longer type runs. My shorter runs are usually 5-6 miles with long runs of 13 miles at least once a month, since last October. Yesterday the plan was to run 10 miles. I didn’t get there. I didn’t feel right the whole run and ended it with only 8 miles. It never feels good for me to end short of my goal. Today I… Read More
When you are photographer and a runner. You photograph running events and then get to share photographs of your friends running in those events.
One of our friends decided we should take on the Mt. Tom Challenge instead of our regularly scheduled local trail run. So at the last minute the night before the event we decided that was just what we would do. The Mt. Tom Challenge consists of going straight up a mountain. Then going around and down the other side. And you do this as many times as you can in two hours…. Read More
The last race I ran was the Wineglass Half Marathon in early October. The next race I was planning to run was the Red Baron Half Marathon in early November. In the month in between I was focusing on recovering from some minor nagging injuries and getting over a bad cold. So, my running was not what I would have liked it to be. I was already anxious about running Red Baron… Read More
Running the 2016 Wineglass Half Marathon: I’ve known for about 52 weeks that I would run this race again. I ran my first half marathon here in 2015 and I knew I wanted to do it again and do it better. This was the one race I knew early on I would run this year. Last year I was nervous if I would even be able to do it, but I did…. Read More
I have been undergoing quite a transformation recently. About a year ago I decided I wanted to try and eat healthier and exercise more and lose some weight. However, even as I worked to increase my amount of exercise I rarely included cardiovascular workouts in the form of jogging or running. Occasionally I would get on my treadmill, but I never did it on a regular basis. I have just never been… Read More
