Road races are fun to photograph. It is great to see so many people out and running the roads all at the same time. I like using my long lens to photograph road races because I can photograph people form a a distance and keep tracking them as they get closer. I can capture multiple images of one person as they move down the road. One challenge of photographing a road race… Read More

One of my favorite activities is running. Running brings me a lot of joy and satisfaction. One of the ways I keep the good time rolling with my running is by finding new things in running to do. This year I have been jumping into a lot of the things the Finger Lakes Running Club has going on. One of the cool new things happening at the Finger Lakes Running Club is… 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

I love to try new things and on this day I got a twofer. I put snowshoes on my feet for the first time ever. And then I went and ran a 5k wearing said snowshoes. I don’t know if I would have participated in this event otherwise, but I made a commitment to myself to run all the events in the Finger Lakes Running Club trail series and the Super Frosty… Read More

I love the challenge, commitment and the process involved in running ultra-distance events. The downside is the time required to train and prepare properly. If running was my only passion I wanted to carve out time for it wouldn’t be a big deal. Unfortunately there is this things called a full time job I have to show up for. And there are other passions in my life that I want to make… Read More

One of my favorite things about running is that there is really just about endless variety and options available if you are open to it. I love to do new things. There are just so many aspects of running that one can tweak or change to shake things up differently. Add in more joy when things are getting a little stale by doing something different.   Ran first 12 hour timed event As… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 345. Attended probably the biggest 5k I’ve ever attended. Over 3000 people. Fun Christmas themed race. So many people. Not just the runners but so many people from the community our supporting the runners and having a good time. The weather was surprisingly mild for an evening run in December with temps in the 50s and me trying to be festive with my ugly sweater on…. Read More

This year I once again ran the Green Monster 25k. I love and hate this race. The trails and the forest are amazing and beautiful. The course however is the most challenging course per mile for me that I have run. There aren’t a ton of races I run year after year. Especially races that are as challenging as this one. Usually that is a one and done type of race. I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 276. Today was a big day for a lot of people in our area. One of the biggest races in our region. Wineglass Marathon and Half Marathon. So many people show up to this race. Going out and running to give it their all. Fighting for PR’s. Striving to run the farthest they have ever run. First time marathoners and half marathoners. All in the mixed… Read More
