Our area has a great running community. There is even an organization called SOAR that focusses specifically on youth running. They work with youths of all ages and even put on a wide variety of events for the young people to participate in. I have had a lot of fun photographing these events over the years. This photo is from a free color run event that SOAR put on. Photo details: Nikon… Read More

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

I love photographing nature and I love photographing sports. The perfect marriage of that is photographing trail running. One of my favorite places to run some trails is at Tanglewood Nature Center. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to photograph a fellow trail runner while he was working on a personal project in conjunction with the nature center. Having the opportunity to focus on a single runner as opposed to a… 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 love to explore new places. Especially on trails. One exploration project I have undertaken over the years has been to try and explore as much of the Finger Lakes Trail as I can. I would love to see the entire Finger Lakes Trail eventually. And that is my goal. To slowly but surely set foot on every part of the Finger Lakes Trail. I started on the trails nearest where I… Read More

There are so many different things to love about running. I love having a goal that I am training for, but it is also great to be done training for a specific goal or race. I try to incorporate as much fun into my training as possible but when you are training for a specific goal or event there are certain things you can and probably can’t do. You do certain 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

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
