The gun went off and the crowd of people started to run up the bridge. The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is the longest bridge span in the Americas and the 11th in the world. When it was built in the ’64, it was the longest in the world. We were on the bridge for close to 2 […]

It all started with arriving in New York on Friday night. With our backpacks on, we headed over to the race expo to pick up my race bib. After getting my bib, we walked around a bit looking at all of the NYC Marathon gear and the vendors. We took some moments to capture some […]

Of all the photography disciplines, night photography, and especially when the subject contains stars, patience is advised. On a few occasions over the past couple months I had my camera with me in the evenings and decided to take some shots of the open skies. Somehow each time I’ve been out, the moon has been […]

The last colors of fall

We have been treated to a longer than usual fall this year. Typically, the ground has been covered with snow by now, at least for a couple days. It is fortunate for me though, since I’ve procrastinated on scheduling a sprinkler blow out. Last week, Jess challenged me with planning a fun date night for […]

Less than 2 weeks…

The NYC marathon is now less than 2 weeks away. The countdown is happening, the runs are almost done and vacation is coming. Last Wednesday, I got my start time which is 10:30 am Eastern. I have been looking at the details of the morning over and over again. The elevation map makes me excited. […]

Fall is still here.

Brent and I had a great date night last night that started with taking some pictures on our favorite trail in town. Fall has been holding on here in Bozeman which is not normal. We have had one of the best Octobers in years. Today it got up to 70 degrees. We’ve been enjoying the […]

The excitement is building.

During the day, I sit at work staring at the computer just thinking about my up coming marathon and trip. (While I am working of course!) The excitement is building. I almost cannot contain it. I get to run the in worlds largest marathon in just over 3 weeks! I get to go to New […]

Grounded: A long day made longer

A CRJ sits outside Shreveport Regional Airport in Louisiana.

I woke early this morning, quickly and quietly gathering my items, most of which were already packed away. Pulling my phone out, I noticed that I had a missed call and voice mail. Looking at the number, I recognized it from my travels earlier in the week as the Delta “your life just got a […]

Business Travel: New England and Louisiana

Posted on October 3rd, 2014 by Brent Life Photo/Video

This week I departed on the longest business trip so far. I left for Boston early Monday morning after a long night of emergency server maintenance with only 3 hours of sleep. Just before boarding, I ran into some friends with some exciting travel ahead. They were adopting a newborn from Florida and had been […]

And the marathon training continues…

Posted on October 2nd, 2014 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

Marathon training has been going better for the most part over the last several weeks. I think I needed that half marathon race to give me a boost in my training. Today I am one month away from the New York City Marathon. I am getting excited! The weather is changing here in Bozeman. I […]
