This should be my 2017 race schedule …

Okay, I think I’ve got my complete 2017 race schedule figured out. I think. Which is a definite maybe. But, let me explain it a little bit. I have a race each month except December. I might add a race in December, but I am not planning on it. It’s a good rest month after a long year of running. My busiest month is June. I have seven races planned for the month. Yes, seven….

My 2017 Race Schedule (January – June)

I have been writing about my 2017 race schedule for the past six months. I’ve gone through numerous revisions — additions, subtractions, more additions and then — even more subtractions. I’ve come to the realization that it’s pretty tough for me to keep a concrete schedule outside of 5-6 months. So, that’s why we’re here. As much as I would love to commit to my whole 2017 race schedule — I just can’t. There are…

The Joshbys: Top 10 Race Medals of 2016

This past year I’ve run some 20+ races. Well, more like 25. I had a few 5K races in there as well. But, I’ve collected quite the cache of race medals in 2016. Lots of blingity bling. As I have done the past couple of years I like to rank my favorites. There’s really no formula in my ranking. Other than what the medal means to me personally and whether or not I love the…

Changes once again to my 2017 race schedule …

I think it’s becoming a near reoccurring theme that my 2017 race schedule keeps changing. And, well, it is. Because, that’s what it’s been like for me the past couple of years. But, it’s really shaping up to where I want/like it. I want to train hard during the winter months and then lightening out with half marathons come June/July-ish. Plus, I want to maintain my ultra training as much as I can. And, to…

Tackling the 2017 race schedule …

As noted last week and pretty much ever since last December, I’ve been trying to work out my 2017 race schedule. And, I won’t lie — it’s been tougher than past years. Why? I think it’s two fold — one, I want to try out some new races. And, two, I’m making the conversion from road to trails slowly, but surely. There’s a part of me that REALLY wants to figure out my race schedule…

Another Look at 2017 …

I am really trying to plan out my 2017 race schedule. If you’ve been following my blog even for the past three months you’ll know I’ve been working on my 2017 schedule pretty obsessively. Which is fine. I mean, it’s always subject to change — especially being three months away from the turning of the calendar. There have been a few races I’ve been going waffling over — namely the DesNews Marathon and a few…

RACE #122: Ragnar Relay Wasatch Back

RAGNAAAAAAR!!! What a fun and wild weekend. What a fun and wild week! Not only did I have RAGNAR this weekend, but this week was full of family weddings, parties and festivities. My little brother got married on Thursday so most of the week was spent prepping for that. Since I had to be ready by 4am to ride up to Logan on Friday night — as soon as I got home from the wedding…

InstaReplay: RAGNAAAAAAAR!!!

RAGNAAAAAAAAAR!!! Going into a RAGNAR I never know what to expect. It’s always an adventure, it’s always a blast, it’s always a party. I’ve never ran with the same team twice and more often than not — I don’t know that many runners on the team. I love it that way, because we always tend to end up friends after some 200 miles. Anyways, I’ll write up a full review tomorrow morning, but in the…
