About Me

I have a lengthy history as a runner (partially because I have been around so long). I was always a football, basketball, and baseball player until I happened to walk by a middle school track meet on the way back from baseball practice in the 8th grade. I was hooked. The next year I was running and jumping. I had a good high school career in XC and track, but I drifted away from the sport for a decade.
I looked at myself in the mirror at 30 years old and knew that not running had taken its toll. I slowly built myself back up and continued to run for the next 20 plus years. My oldest son was late getting into track. He came out his junior year and found out he was one of the top triple jumpers in the state. This got me reacquainted with the sport. The next year I became the distance coach at East Forsyth. I later started coaching jumps. I coached AAU/USATF track in the summer and XC in the fall.
After the 2009 season I decided to dedicate all of my efforts to photography.

For photo inquiries e mail jsides3@triad.rr.com
I have a photo site that will be favoring The NCHSAA running events.
