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…

For the 144 …

This past week has been a VERY emotional week for not just me, but lots of people — nationwide and within my circle of friends. It’s been a week full of sadness, somberness, reflection, anger and frustration. Sometimes separately, sometimes concurrently. It didn’t help that the week started with the news of the Vegas Shooting. I woke up at 2:45am to use the restroom and couldn’t back to sleep as I was following the updates….

The Runcast, Epi. 004: Classic Rock

There’s a new episode of The Runcast out today. In this episode I sit down with Joe Coles from On Hill Events and jam out to some classic rock, while talking about some his upcoming races.

You can listen to the episode below or log onto theruncast.net to listen to this and…

Of Rest and Sickness …

I should have seen it coming. This always happens after I run long, long distances for many, many weekends. My body gives up and decides to rebel. It gets sick. And, if you’re wondering. Yes, I am now sick. No more than 2-3 days after running the Antelope Island 50K last weekend my body went into automatic sickness mode. It started around Election Night — and just got progressively worse. It fed itself into an…

RACE #134: Pony Express 50 Mile Trail Run

Going into my race on Friday I had a hard time expressing my thoughts and feelings about what I was about to accomplishment. Mainly because I was just so eager to experience what was ahead of me. But, now I’m here. The 50 miler is behind me and I’ve been processing the experience the past few days. I’m not sure if the word ‘experience’ is the right word — experiences — is more appropriate. There…

RACE #133: Red Rock Relay Park City

Man, I am winding down towards my 50 — which is happening NEXT week. It’s hard to believe I am almost there, especially after running three marathons in the past month. I just want to run that 50 and get it done with. This past weekend as part of my “tapering” miles, I ran the Red Rock Relay with Team Addict II Athlete. This was a race I’ve been looking forward to for most of…

InstaReplay: Red Rock Relay Park City

After the St. George Marathon last weekend, I’m now on the tapering end of my training for the Pony 50 — which is happening NEXT week. I’m still more excited than scared, but ask me again next week what my emotions are heading into the race. This past weekend I ran the Red Rock Relay in Park City with the Addict II Athlete team. I love relays. It’s a great opportunity to get to know…
