Life has been crrrrrrrazy busy lately so I just cracked open the July issue of UltraRunning Magazine. I was thumbing through the pages and then got to the centerfold. I realized it was a picture I snapped during the Buffalo Run 50 miler!
I got goosebumps thinking about what an amazing blessing running has been to me. Not only was the race itself such an awesome experience, but to have others get a taste of that experience in the magazine.......I just feel very thankful. I am so, so thankful. I noticed a few of my other pictures as well.
I really love this magazine. It has been known as "The Bible of ultrarunning" for 30+ years. There are three things that they do so well in each issue:
1) Informative, educational, and inspiring articles.
2) Great race reports (often from the race directors).
3) They post the finishing times of ALL finishers of the ultramarathons. Not just the top three finishers. They include EVERYONE. First place to last place. I think it's pretty symbolic of ultramarathons in general. The races feel so inclusive. Slow runners respect fast runners for their amazing abilities. Fast runners respect slow runners for their grit and determination.
If you're looking for inspiration or considering going beyond 26.2, you ought to subscribe to UltraRunning Magazine. I'm not sponsored by them and I get nothing if you subscribe. From one runner to another, this is worth checking out.
Wow that is so amazing! Congrats and great pictures! I think I might subscribe even though I only run shorter distances. You never know what the future holds and I find ultra runners so inspiring.ReplyDelete
That is so, so cool!! And your line about fast runner / slow runner respect was one of the coolest revelations I had after I'd been running for a while...and freeing! It's ok if you aren't fast as long as you're out there.ReplyDelete
So cool! Maybe that tarantula picture will make the next issue! :)ReplyDelete
I definitely will be subscribing pronto! Awesome photos! I really hope that saying is true about fast runners appreciating slow runners for their grit and determination. I definitely am awed by the speed of people on the trails. I just don't know how they do it. No matter how hard I try I can't quite make this old body of mine go any faster. I am super inspired by those fast people though!ReplyDelete
I really enjoy reading the magazine! Cool that so many of your photos were featured.ReplyDelete

So neat! Congrats!ReplyDelete
That's an angel of a centerfold, Cory! You're a great photographer. It looks like a beautiful magazine. I will not feel worthy until I run an ultra (someday!).ReplyDelete
Wow that is super cool! Great picture!ReplyDelete
AWESOME. You got some serious cred now! Nice work!ReplyDelete
Pictures are really nice! Congrats!ReplyDelete
I saw those. Great job Cory, I think this is the first time they have put a few pics from the Buffalo Run in the magazine. Usually all we get is the silly report I write plus the results. I love seeing pics of the island in print.ReplyDelete
