One photo a day challenge: Day 15. It has been really gloomy outside lately. I really want to get out and photograph some landscapes, but it has been so overcast having any nice sky in the photo will be difficult if not impossible. So Dark I went for a run today with my Nikon mirrorless camera clipped to my Peak Design Capture Clip on my running vest. But it was so dreary,… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 13. Today I set out to focus my daily photo challenge photos on a specific idea. I wanted to capture some interesting photographs showcasing the ice on the rocky ledges I see every day. In recent years it seems like Upstate New York hasn’t had many time frames where there has been snowfall that has persisted for long periods of time. Our winters just haven’t seemed… Read More

I spent most of November writing about one of my favorite places, Tanglewood Nature Center, here on the blog. The motivation to write about this place was generated by the fact that they were holding a fundraiser and I wanted to try to play a small part in helping them with that if I could. I wanted to try to draw some attention to the place I enjoy so much and help… Read More

This has been a very interesting experience for me. I have never taken on a course and tried to run it faster and faster over a period of time before. Outside of the few exceptions of some races I have run multiple times over the years, but there aren’t many of those. Running one route 6 times in one month. Trying to get faster and faster each time. This is new. Do… Read More

I have been a fan of Tanglewood Nature Center for a long time now. Finding way to be involved there over there years has been something I have enjoyed. Some of my first ever on display artwork was hung at Tanglewood. I have photographed running there. There is photography available for purchase on my website that when sold I make a contribution to Tanglewood. I have been talking with the staff at… 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.

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
