Be Prepared … and other stuff.

No race this past weekend. In fact, not much running at all. And, by much, I mean — none. I got some good miles in during the week, but my time and feet were used at PrepperCon this past weekend. Honestly, it wasn’t that bad — I got a lot of time and mileage on my feet walking around the South Towne Expo Center — which is great prep for this weekend’s running adventure. If…

#FitnessFriday: A Midnight Run, Pokemon Go and some Whole30 fun …

FRIDAY, FRIDAY, FRIDAY! I haven’t been this excited for Friday — since — last Friday! I definitely work for the weekend. It’s been a good and productive week, but I am ready for a reprieve. And, summer weekends are the best at providing that. It’s actually been a really good week — had a few really good runs. Not so much the physically great, but the emotionally great runs. I had a double run day…

Phat Tuesday Matters & Such

I feel like a bum. I wasn’t able to get my long run in like I had hoped on Saturday. And, by long run — I mean any run. This past weekend — and subsequent week are crazy busy leading up to PrepperCon on Friday and Saturday. Plus, on top of that, I am taking Thursday and Friday off of work, so I am working ahead as much as I can. Busy, busy, busy. But,…

Friday Matters: Cranking up the miles, getting prep’d and mourning a loss on my race schedule …

Every year as the calendar and seasons go into spring — I am always reminded how much I love this weather. There’s something wonderfully renewing about Spring that rejuvenates my goals and resolutions better than New Years. But, for someone who loathes the snow — spring weather — is simply the best. Whether it’s the cool morning weather, spring showers or small glimpses of summer … I love it all (I feel like I just…

My favorite temple run, surprises on Antelope Island and much, much more …

What a fun weekend! And, I mean a — FUN — weekend! I ended up calling a few audibles But, thats okay, everything worked out the way I wanted it to — maybe even better? Saturday was a pretty loooooooong day. It started with a 4am wake up call — after about two hours of sleep. If that. I wasn’t getting up early for a race or even to run — but, I was meeting…

Fight4Phat: Fightin’ and actually seeing some results!

What a great week — especially leading into a great weekend! I am very excited for this weekend for a number of reasons. I think the exciting news is that I am actually starting to see progress with my weight-loss. It’s been a month or so of tweaking diets, workout regimes and runs to come up with something that works with my body. Thyroids are tricky things — but the more I’ve read and learned…

Fight4Phat Friday: Time to double down on this fight …

I won’t lie — kinda bummed that I don’t have a race this weekend. I was so excited about my half marathon last weekend that the excitement has kinda carried over into this week — with nothing to give it. Well, that’s not entirely true. I have no race and it’s going to get tricky getting a long run in tomorrow — because, I am attending the UCAP (Utah Coalition Against Pornograpy) Conference at the…

Two more weeks of Daylight Standard Time! Can we … LEAP .. ahead already?

Happy Leap Day! Is that an actual thing? I know four years ago it was billed as an ‘One More Disney Day’ with the parks being open 24 hours. I won’t lie — I’d rather be celebrating Leap Day that way instead of a typical Monday. But, it is what it is, right? I shouldn’t be complaining though — I am excited about the change of the calendar. Spring is coming and it’s literally in…
