One photo a day challenge: Day 261. Today was a beautiful day for a race. The Southern Tier Running Club was hosting a local 5k and 10k. The race was right in my neighborhood. Perfect opportunity for some race photography. Here is one sample from the day. First male out of the gate. Check back soon for more photos from the race.
I spent some time volunteering with the Southern Tier Running Club‘s youth club SOAR at their monthly kids fun run providing photography. It is always nice to see all the kids, parents, coaches, and SOAR athletes that come out for these fun community events. Enjoy the photos.
Last year the Southern Tier Running Club launched its first trail running event. I was so excited for this and I had to participate by running in the first ever STRC trail race. This year the STRC is launched its second brand new Trail Running event: Trail Fest at Pinnacle. I was equally excited for this event as well. I love seeing our running club grow and provide more events for our… Read More
In three days I will be running the Skunk Cabbage Half for the second time. This wil be the first time I have run a race with a very specific time goal I want to achieve. I have been training hard ever since the last time I ran this race and I am in the best shape of my life. That said I am still nervous. What if I fail? I have… Read More
As runners I we are all excited when we see that a race we are running will have a photographer. It is great to be able to have our photographs taken while we do something we love. We don’t have to try to take selfies for this one. We will have memories created for us of this achievement. It’s a nice feeling. We wait patiently or perhaps impatiently for the photos to… Read More

They will all be posted online soon for the runners to see…. Read More
Why Run? For exercise. For fun. For peace. For solitude. For energy. For fitness. For health. For a cause. For friends. To see new things. To have new experiences. To be part of a community. To share in something. Who cares why, just run.

Other than that I just wanted to enjoy running with my friends. And on that note the first part of the year has been great. As with most things the… Read More
This year I have been focusing mostly on longer type runs. My shorter runs are usually 5-6 miles with long runs of 13 miles at least once a month, since last October. Yesterday the plan was to run 10 miles. I didn’t get there. I didn’t feel right the whole run and ended it with only 8 miles. It never feels good for me to end short of my goal. Today I… Read More
