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.

When you spend over ten hours out in nature moving across this landscape on your… Read More

I enjoy running as an outlet, as a way to socialize, and as a way to stay healthy. What I enjoy even more than running is just being outside and adventuring. I have not really just gone out adventuring in a while. I don’t know if was due to a lack of motivation or inspiration, but it just hadn’t really happened since my last big race. Then along came this interesting opportunity…. Read More

I spent some time today trying to relearn what I had previously learned how to do in Photoshop. At one point I had learned how to create a composite image from several shots that I took at a race I photographed. I was able to create an image that I really liked but I did not keep in practice with doing it and forgot how to do it. So, now I get… Read More

The weather in Upstate, NY has been getting progressively nicer lately and today the forecast was for warm weather. The snow is currently mostly melted.

Racing season is over for the year for me, unless one of my friends somehow convinces me otherwise. My last race was one I wasn’t really planning to run for sure. Once I decided to run the race I actually got pretty excited about it. The race was Last Rebel Survivor presented by Rebellion Running. Last Rebel Survivor is a last person standing style event in the vein of Bigs Backyard Ultra…. Read More

Last year after running my first two 50k ultra marathons I decided to take the next “logical” step and test myself out at the 50 mile distance. Perhaps many people would not see any of this as logical but it made sense to me. I wanted to find a race that suited my preferences. My first two 50k races were very different from each other. One being very flat and one being… Read More
