Black Squirrel Half Marathon 2014

Saturday might have been the most beautiful day for a race I have photographed. A cool, foggy morning followed by sunshine just in time for the after-race celebration. As usual, Nick and Pete did an outstanding job of organizing and it was a great day out on the trails! Lory State Park was buzzing with smiling runners, volunteers and people just out to cheer. Here are some photos from the day! Race photos will be posted at Black Squirrel Half Marathon as well as at Erin Bibeau Photography.

Quad Rock 2014

I spent last Saturday up on the Arthur’s Rock Trailhead at Lory State Park photographing the Quad Rock 50 and 25 miler. It was tough trail for runners and the day brought sun, heat, rain, clouds and lots of scrapes and bruises. As usual, runners were in great spirits and rocked the trail! Here are some photos from the day.

Summer and Fall

As winter settles in and the snow falls I thought it would be a great time to recap my summer and fall with a new blog post. It has been a busy season and I enjoyed spending my days playing in the fall colors with some great families! Here are some photos from the summer and fall. Wishing everyone a happy 2014!

Below

My friend Ryan Lockwood recently published his first book! I just finished reading it and I couldn’t put it down. It is a great summer read – exciting, suspenseful, and just a little bit scary (especially for a girl who grew up swimming along the California coast!).

I was thrilled to do Ryan’s author portrait. Check out the “About Ryan” page for my photo credit. And go buy his book! :)

Quad Rock 50 2013

I spent Saturday up on the Arthur’s Rock Trail at Lory State Park photographing the Quad Rock 50 trail run. It was a beautiful sunny day and it was so great to see runners on the trail after the wildfire that burned 1000 acres in Lory just a few months ago. A snowy and rainy spring has done wonders for the hills and new grass is growing up everywhere. After a foggy run last year, this year I was able to capture runners heading up the trail with Arthur’s Rock in the background. This is a tough run and I am always amazed by the smiles, the skipping (yes it’s true!), the laughs, and the thank you’s I get from runners. What an incredible group of athletes! Here are a few photos from the day. The full gallery can be seen at Quad Rock 50 2013 Gallery. I am looking forward to photographing the Black Squirrel Half Marathon in August and the Blue Sky Marathon in October!

Thanks to my awesome husband Bryan Bibeau for helping me out as second race photographer!

Zimmerman Lake Ski

We went cross-country skiing up near Cameron Pass a couple weekends ago. We started off with sunny skies and as we drove up the Poudre River Canyon worried about the snow… there was none! Sure enough as we approached the Zimmerman Lake Trailhead snow started to appear on the hillsides and by the time we were clicking into our skis it was snowing like crazy. We had a great ski and the snow was just amazing. Here are a few photos from the day!
