In continuation of what has been a very different running year for me, compared to the last several years, I headed to Wellsboro to run the Green Monster Trail Challenge. This year I planned a running season that focused mostly on shorter races so I could try to feel what it would be like to run faster with more effort put into each mile. My norm for the last several years has… Read More

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

Lure Coursing. I love watching dogs do what they do. This is especially true when dogs use the full potential of what makes them dogs. Watching dogs run full speed. Legs moving as fast as can be in hot pursuit. This is a sight to see. Dogs chasing the lure around a predetermined course. Hot on the tail of the lure. The dogs are so excited and ready to go. Joy and… 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

In 2021 the Finger Lakes Running Club created the FLRC Challenge. During this time in the COVID Pandemic in person racing was still a challenge to do safely. This essentially virtual challenge was a really fun option. It looked really interesting. However, I decided not to sign up for it because I already had a lot of running on my plate planned to 2021 pandemic permitting. After seeing this challenge pop up… 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
