An update of things and whatnot …

Not going to lie, I’ve been in a funky funk lately. It’s been a challenging couple of weeks coming off of my vacation. I have the motivation, it’s just the execution of what I should or should not be doing hasn’t been there. I jumped back into my keto diet after my vacation. That hasn’t been the problem. My plan is to stick to it hardcore for the next couple of months. I will then…

… 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,…

KETO UPDATE: Three Months In

Well, here I am. It’s been three months since I started my keto diet. And, I reached my goal of losing 30lbs. — which I truly excited and grateful to meet. It was a weird about way getting here, but I am here. When I made the initial goal, I didn’t expect the initial weight loss. I reached my goal pretty much within about six weeks of me starting the diet. This got me excited…

RACE #166: The Haunted Half — Provo City

I am winding down on so much right now — not only am I winding down on my 2017 race schedule, but my 180 goal as well. This was my 29th race over 13.1 miles this year and fourth to last. That’s a lot of running. Then on top of that this is the 15th to the last race of my 180 race goal. That last one is a harder one to process than this…

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,…

KETO UPDATE: Two Months In

It’s hard to believe that I am two months into this thing. This past month has gone by quite fast to be honest. My weight loss has slowed down which was kind of expected. But, overall I am close to losing 30lbs — which was my overall goal for the whole three months. So, though I only lost about 5-6lbs., I am still ahead of my projections — and I am losing inches at the…

Running Thoughts …

So, the Mad Pooper is still at large, eh? Also, why couldn’t we have given her a better nickname than Mad Pooper? Seriously. Mad Squatter? Poopy Runner? Sh*tty Runner? So many better alternatives than Mad Pooper. Just sayin’ … There’s a new episode of The Runcast out today. I interview my friend Meridith in a special breast cancer awareness month episode. Give it a listen. Today is National Coffee Day or as we like to…

KETO UPDATE: One Month In

I’ve meant to post this earlier this week. But, thanks to not feeling too hot after my race this past weekend and working on that race recap, I’ve taken my time to get to get to it. But, that’s okay, it’s still relevant. The past month has gone by pretty quickly — it’s hard to believe that I am a month into my 36th year. Almost as hard as it is to believe that I…
