I always have my eyes open for any running or outdoor adventures going on. So, I was really excited when I stumbled across the post from Tanglewood Nature Center introducing Run For The Hills! Even better than that was reading about a fellow runner that was excited about the same trails I was and was trying to make an impact to help support our local nature center through Ben’s Long Run. I… Read More

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

With the fall season upon us most of my opportunities to hit the trails will be on the weekend. So its back to back days of hard runs on the red trail at Tanglewood Nature Center. Red Trail Attempt 2 We have been having some unusually warm weather for the season here in upstate New York. Temperatures have been in the 70’s. How do I celebrate the great weather. Get up early… Read More

When you become a runner you begin to slowly build connections. You build connections with people who share this same crazy love you do. You become part of a community. You are part of a journey.  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

The Challenge In the past I have never been a big fan of virtual races. I don’t think I had ever done one before this year. However, with the unusual circumstances we all find ourselves in it is a good time to embrace something new. As everyone is away most events are cancelled and this has included races for runners. I haven’t run a regular race this year and all the ones… Read More

I do fun, for me, strange, crazy, weird things. I do things that other people might not want to do or see the value in doing. I do them for many reasons. One reason I do them is because it allows me to enjoy nature in a way you just cannot enjoy nature in any other way. When you spend over ten hours out in nature moving across this landscape on your… Read More
