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.
I love it when my passions merge into one opportunity. I can put together all the different aspects of my life that I enjoy. It is like the various parts of my life merge and become the person I am supposed to be. I love photography. I have been doing it for 20 years now. I love running. I have been running for 7 years now. I love nature. I have always… Read More
My approach to this series of trail runs has been sub optimal for maximizing performance. Running two hard runs on back to back days is not likely to provide consistently improved performance on each subsequent run. But you run when you can run. It is dark before I leave for work. And it is essentially dark when I get home from work this time of year. So weekends are the time I… Read More
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 was on social media as one is and I stumbled across a post about Run for The Hills! I was excited to see this fun event scheduled to take place at one of my favorite places. And on one of my favorite trails. Tanglewood Nature Center. I have been hoping something would pop up specifically featuring the Red Trail at Tanglewood. It is my favorite trail there and I run it… Read More

You build lasting friendships. You become a small part in the amazing journey your friends make as well. Being part of a community. Making the friends I have made. Being a part of other people’s journeys…. Read More
One type of project I have been wanting to create was a project where I am photographing one specific athlete doing what they do. Most of my sports related photography centers around photographing an entire event. So that is basically the opposite of what I want to accomplish in a project like this. I have worked with a couple of athletes on a smaller scale to work on something similar to this…. Read More
