Two years ago as part of my build up to my first 100 mile race I put the Finger Lakes 50’s, 50 mile race on my schedule. This year I was traning for my second 100 mile race. This 100 mile race is at the end of July so has the potential to be quite warm. Planning to train for a potentially hot 100 mile race. I wanted to gain experience running… Read More

I set out on a training run with a specific goal in mind. The goal had nothing to do with pace or really even distance. It had to do with the route I chose to run. I chose to run a specific route because I wanted to connect two sections of trail that I have run before. Finger Lakes Trail One of my favorite places to run is the Finger Lakes Trail…. Read More

I haven’t written much about my training or running this year. This run however was a little bit of a different experience so I thought I would take a minute to write about it. My training plan was calling for a 22 mile long run on trails. This is good because my biggest races are all on trail and I really have not spent much time running on trails this year. What… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 142. Today was race day. Ran Sehgahunda trail marathon relay. 2nd half of a two person relay. 11 miles. Carried my GoPro to capture some images of the fun and beautiful nature scenes along the way. Up and down gullies all day long. This photo features on of the up downs that are a prominent feature of this race. The gullies also create some of the… Read More

Two aspects of running that I love are exploring nature and testing myself. Running the Hills Creek Endurance Challenge was going to give me the chance to do both. The Hills Creek Endurance Challenge takes place at Hills Creek State Park in Pennsylvania. The event is a 3 mile trail loop. There are options to run the loop for 3, 6, or 12 hours. I have only ever run one other timed… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 92. Today I did something a little bit different with my one photo a day challenge. So far the challenge has focused on using my DSLR and Mirrorless cameras to create photography. Today I wanted to expand that to use my other tools I use to create photography. Today I went out on what turned out to be a 17 mile trail run with a friend…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 84. Todays daily photo is brought to you by having running friends. I didn’t know if I would run today or not. I thought I probably would, but I had a Zoom meeting right when I got home from work. So if I ran I would be more inclined to just run something short right from home. I would not have thought to take my camera…. Read More

I have been working more on my overall fitness of late, but my running has been taking more of a back seat than it has in the past. I probably have not run nearly as much as I have in winters past. Especially considering 2 of the past 4 years I have been training for ultras in the spring. Last year I was training for a half marathon PR. This year I… Read More

Starting of my January one photo a day challenge. The goal is to take at least one photo every day for the month of January. Then share one of the phots I take each day here on the blog. The only restriction I am giving myself is that the phot must be taken with a camera other than my cell phone camera. What a way to start off a new year. 13.1… Read More

This has been a very interesting experience for me. I have never taken on a course and tried to run it faster and faster over a period of time before. Outside of the few exceptions of some races I have run multiple times over the years, but there aren’t many of those. Running one route 6 times in one month. Trying to get faster and faster each time. This is new. Do… Read More
