O, Canada, O, Little Cottonwood Canyon, O, Quads!

My favorite weekend — or week — of the year is the stretch in July between the 1st to the 4th. It’s a celebratory week. From Canada Day to family birthdays to the 4th of July, it’s simply my favorite. Especially when you throw in the element of summer into it. So, when I wanted to organize a group run for this weekend, I knew I wanted to celebrate Canada Day in conjunction with the…

#FitnessFriday: On the homestretch of my second round of Whole30

It’s been an emotionally strange week. Obviously the high point being the 4th of July on Monday. After that — it’s kinda progressively gotten worse. And, the low point (hopefully) being what happened in Dallas last night. My head hurts. My heart hurts. My being hurts. I’m not a very political person — mainly because I don’t believe politics today (especially in our country) don’t represent our best interests aaaaaaand do nothing to unite us…

Tuesday’s Shorts

If you haven’t caught the latest episode of the Runcast USA — you should. I am sharing more of my favorite running music. Including probably my current favorite running song — sneak peek here. I was also a special guest on The Park Hoppers this past week. We talked about my Disneynerdiness along with my experience running Disney races AND we also did a Dole Whip taste test of places you can buy the magical…

RACE #124: 13 Miles of Freedom

First off — HAPPY FOURTH! I hope you’re having a great holiday weekend. This really is my favorite weekend of the year. So much family time, so many community activities and it’s summer to boot! Plus — USA! USA! USA! One thing that’s been missing ever since I started running some six years ago is a 4th of July race longer than a 5K or even 10K to run during the weekend (or on the…

InstaReplay: 13 Miles of Freedom

This morning I ran the 13 Miles of Freedom put on by Extra Mile Racing. It was a fun a little race along the Jordan River Parkway. I went into the race without any expectations — I got exactly what I prepared myself for! HAHAHA! I ended up getting lost and running 16 miles total, I ran into a naked homeless guy under the 2100 South overpass and just had the adventure of my life….

#FitnessFriday: Red (bloody nipples), White (pasty legs) and Blue (bruised toenails)

Before we start blabbering about the 4th of July weekend it should be noted that today is Canada Day. So to all my Canadian friends and Canada lovers — Happy Canada Day! This isn’t just a hollow salutation — not only am I part Canadian (1/8) but I actually have stories of celebrating Canada Day IN Canada. I don’t know how this makes me more special … it just does. It was actually 20 years…
