The 2017 Joshby Running Award Winners

First off, I want to thank everyone who was involved with The Joshby Running Awards this year. Not just my adorably cute announcers during the Awards Show last night, but everyone that nominated fellow runners, races, etc. for the 16 categories — and voted! I was floored that over 200 people voted for each category. Amazing. When I started The Joshbys over 12 years ago, I did it as fun way to acknowledge my family…

… and I’m back …

After 15 days abroad — I am back! There is so, so much to say about the trip. Not only did I tour Paris, Rome, Athens and other places alongside my family, but I was able to meet cousins in Athens and Crete as well. It was a life changing trip — to say the least. But, after living out of a carry-on suitcase and on some very questionable mattresses (one in which I broke,…

RACE #169: Mt. View Trail Half

I had many emotions going into this race — gratitude, excitement, relievement and — yes — even a tinge of disappointment. So, let’s breakdown those emotions … Gratitude — because Saturday not only marked my 169th race, but the 8th anniversary of the beginning of my journey. The day I decided to make up and LIVE. Excitement — This was my 169th race, meaning I am just 11 races away from 180 goal (which I…

RACE #168: Joshua Tree Half Marathon

[CLICK HERE TO READ MY SNOW CANYON HALF REPORT] After picking me up from the High School, Julianna, Michelle and her daughter booked it out of town so we could get to Joshua Tree in time for the Joshua Tree Half Marathon. Crystal was going to make the journey with us, but she ended up going to the ER to get some fluids after her race. Sadly, she didn’t make the trip at all. The…

RACE #167: Snow Canyon Half Marathon

A few months ago this weekend was very much an unknown variable. I wasn’t expecting on racing, but I wanted to. There wasn’t a half marathon in Northern Utah, but the Snow Canyon in Southern Utah was — and it’s a favorite of mine. So with some urging of friends I decided to make a quick trip of it. I figured adding another race this year would help alleviate my race schedule in 2018, especially…

RACE #165: Howloween Half Marathon

[CLICK HERE FOR MY SOJO HALF RACE REPORT] After getting home from the SoJo Half I had an agenda — get some food and take a nap. Unfortunately, I only succeeded in one of those two. I didn’t get the nap I wanted. But, after some steak and eggs I was pretty much good to go for my second race. This was the second time that I’ve done the Howloween Half. The last time it…

RACE #164: SoJo Half

Sometimes I make good decisions. Sometimes I make bad decisions. But, often, I make really bad decisions — yet somehow turn out to be good all along. That pretty much sums this past Saturday for me. I haven’t done a double race day or two within less than 6-12 hours of each other for quite a while — back in July of 2015. Or about 63 races ago. Oy, that seems so long ago. Anyway,…
