Running

Cross country running is one of my favourite activities. I love exploring a new trail, taking some pictures, and sharing my journey with you. Hopefully, you will discover a new trail to explore with these posts and photographic tours.

  • A Muddy Trail Run with Chase

    Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to go for a muddy trail run with me? Here’s your chance. I recently watched some fun running videos here on YouTube and thought is was time for me to try making my own. I don’t have a selfie stick or a gimble so the shots […]


  • 2nd Time, 2nd Place (Pinery Fall Classic)

    Last year I ran the Pinery Fall Classic for the first time. It was really nice to be in a competitive race again. It had been a while since I had done that. It was a lot of fun and I knew I wanted to go again the following year. So, here is my recap […]


  • Pinery Fall Classic – 1st Place Finish

    I had a chance to run the Pinery Fall Classic for the first time this year. In fact, it was the first competitive run I’ve done in quite a long time. As they were starting to queue up the runners for 5-kilometer trail race, they announced that faster runners should come up to the front. […]


  • Naftel’s Creek Conservation Area Trail Run

    Naftel’s Creek Conservation Area is located at 79154 Bluewater Hwy, in Goderich ON. Canada. It looked like a nice place to go for a trail run. As usual, I stopped along the route to take a few pictures to share with you. Unfortunately, every time I stopped to take a picture, bugs started landing on […]


  • Bickford Oak Woods Conservation Reserve

    I recently downloaded the AllTrails app to help me find new places to explore and fresh new trails to run. I saw this description and was intrigued. “Check out this 4.7-km loop trail near Saint Clair, Ontario. Generally considered an easy route, it takes an average of 1 h 1 min to complete. This is […]


  • Chatham’s Mud Creek

    I found myself in Chatham and thought I’d explore a new trail and get a run in. I asked someone for a suggestion of where I could go and they suggested Mud Creek. The paved trail loops around a creek for three kilometers. I’m not sure what Lioness Park is. It just seems to be […]

  • Oh Deer, Unxepected Running Companions

    Komoka Provincial Park is one of my favourite places to run. I haven’t ran the front portion of the trail, the one that starts on Oxford Road, in a while. I have mainly been running the blue trail lately. But I felt like a change, and boy did I get one. When I got to […]


  • Cup and Saucer Trail Run

    The Cup and Saucer Trail is an absolutely beautiful place to hike on Manitoulin Island and one of the most popular trails in the province. There are 12 km of hiking trails through the hardwood bush, as well as 2 km of adventure trails. As you can see from the sign, there are some huge […]


  • M’Chigeeng Trail

    The M’Chigeeng Hiking Trail is located on First Nations’ land on Manitoulin Island. The trail starts off rather rocky and runs uphill for quite some time. The run was worth it just for this beautiful rocky terrain. But it gets even nicer at the top. The trail markers are easy to follow all the way […]
