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

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

If you have read my blog before this may sounds like a broken records, but I really love running. What do I love about running? Well, just that, the running. The fact that running can really be just about anything. I love the variety that is available through running. Variety in distances, in surfaces, types of events, scenery, comradery and everything in between. I am rarely satisfied with repeating the same things… Read More

Last year I ran the 12 hour version of the Hills Creek Endurance Challenge. I had such a positive experience there that this year I really wanted to return to the event, but in a totally different way. This year I was back at the Hills Creek Endurance Challenge, but not as a runner as a photographer. As a photographer I love these loop course races. They present so many opportunities for… Read More

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
