Hey all!  Hope you had a great week!  I just spent the weekend playing the photographer at a race my husband and a friend co-directed- The Catskill Trail Marathon.  It is one of the gnarliest races on the east coast of the USA. I got to witness and photograph some of the best emotions EVER- relief, pain, accomplishment, and elation.  It was such learning experience! Be sure to check out the post and pictures HERE!

Playing Photographer at the Catskill Trail Marathon 2016…

OCome see the looks of excitement, accomplishment, relief, and elation of the finishers of the Catskill Trail Marathon 2016!

Yesterday was the 2nd annual Catskill Trail Marathon, directed by Mike Siudy and Charlie Godol.  Did I run it you ask?  HECK NO!    It is one of the “gnarliest” trail marathons on the east coast of the USA.  It takes a very special kind of runner to finish this beast of a course.  It is a rugged 26+ mile course, with 7000+ elevation gain- many miles in the backcountry, rock ledges, steep ascents/descents, and since its start- wet and slippery conditions! The winning time was 4 hours, 41 minutes.  Ben Nephew saved the day and showed what a true athlete is made of when he helped race-mate David Kilgore patch up a gash in his head after having it meet with an angry tree.  Both ran it in together to tie for first place!   Makes for a fun day, huh?  I got to bear witness to this amazing story, and watch another 87 people cross the finish line as the rain subsided (for the most part). I got to play photographer and capture some pretty amazing shots of relief, happiness, accomplishment, and elation! It was such a great learning experience!!!  WOW~  (more…)
