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

One of the best things about being a runner is that there are so many other people out there that enjoy the same thing you do. There are whole communities just waiting for you to show up and say hi. Or in my case to just show up stand around awkwardly and say nothing. Then all those wonderful people will talk to you because you are there and you also love running…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 338. So happy to get out on the Green Monster Trails today. Great fun going with friend from home to meet up with other friends and run some trails. 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

One photo a day challenge: Day 243. Today I spent the day photographing different areas along the Finger Lakes Trail. The Finger Lakes Trail is an amazing and beautiful trail here in upstate, New York. The are many places I have been fortunate enough to run on the trail. These places are so beautiful. They deserve to be photographed. I have not had as many opportunities to photograph these places as I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 205. Today was a fun day with lots of time spent out on the trails. First I photographed the Run For The Hills 5k and 10k at Tanglewood Nature Center. 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

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 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.

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
