Tough Mudder New England

Well I am writing just to inspire myself once again to get the Tough Mudder New England course under my belt. I had a dream of doing it this year however I found myself expecting a little bundle of joy who was due around the time this course even took place! I had trained really hard for the Tough Mudders I wanted to participate in and found myself in the best shape of my life, even better than when I was a Division 1 college athlete!

Tough Mudder New England takes place in Mount Snow Vermont and the course is designed by British Special Forces. I believe it is one of the most difficult Mudder courses on the circuit, hence the reason why I am wanting to do this event. I am more invested in training for the Mudders of 2012 than ever before as I have the dreaded baby fat to lose!
Check out the New England Tough Mudder video from this year...

It is hard to believe this was me just 11 months ago before baby:

Birthday Shots

My studio is nearing completion and I am hoping it will be fully done by August 1 so I can begin working. Time is ticking July, is a busy month of travelling for us so our time to work on the studio is running away from us. I will be leaving for Block Island and Connecticut for the week of July 4th then we will be leaving for the Jersey Shore the last 4 days of July and then I am off for a wedding shoot in Dayton Ohio.

I did manage to pick up my camera this weekend for myself, not a hired job, so I didn't bring my best equipment with me, but I did get some cute shots of my nephew and my own newborn son :)

Also played around in my lilly garden last week shooting some abstracted macro shots...
