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

I love to explore new places. Especially on trails. One exploration project I have undertaken over the years has been to try and explore as much of the Finger Lakes Trail as I can. I would love to see the entire Finger Lakes Trail eventually. And that is my goal. To slowly but surely set foot on every part of the Finger Lakes Trail. I started on the trails nearest where I… Read More

I usually have a standing rule. No races in the winter. It’s not that I don’t run in the winter I just like to choose the conditions in which I run instead of running in whatever winter throws at me on race day. The one winter race I remember signing up for prior to this year, the weather ended up being so bad that our whole group that was planning to go… Read More

I love to try new things and on this day I got a twofer. I put snowshoes on my feet for the first time ever. And then I went and ran a 5k wearing said snowshoes. I don’t know if I would have participated in this event otherwise, but I made a commitment to myself to run all the events in the Finger Lakes Running Club trail series and the Super Frosty… Read More

I love the challenge, commitment and the process involved in running ultra-distance events. The downside is the time required to train and prepare properly. If running was my only passion I wanted to carve out time for it wouldn’t be a big deal. Unfortunately there is this things called a full time job I have to show up for. And there are other passions in my life that I want to make… Read More

One of my favorite things about running is that there is really just about endless variety and options available if you are open to it. I love to do new things. There are just so many aspects of running that one can tweak or change to shake things up differently. Add in more joy when things are getting a little stale by doing something different.   Ran first 12 hour timed event As… Read More

Getting out in nature. Stopping to take a few photos during a day of running. This is what its all about. I haven’t taken many running scenery photos lately. It makes me so happy to capture the… Read More

This year I once again ran the Green Monster 25k. I love and hate this race. The trails and the forest are amazing and beautiful. The course however is the most challenging course per mile for me that I have run. There aren’t a ton of races I run year after year. Especially races that are as challenging as this one. Usually that is a one and done type of race. I… Read More

I spent all year training for this one event. Speed Work. Hill Repeats. Weekend long runs. Mid-week long runs. Back to back long runs. Cross training. Cycling. Yoga. Strength Training. Core work. All the time I spend putting my feet on the ground. One foot in front of the other. All the hours of hard work. All the time slowly progressing towards this day. I am thankful to all my friends who… Read More

Then I went for a 10 mile trail run of my own on the trails at Tanglewood. I love being out on the trails creating photography. It is so much fun to see all the participants… Read More
