The Runcast: S03, E01 — Part Two of ‘It Takes Heart’

Season Three of The Runcast​ kicked off last week with me interviewing co-host and close friend Jorge​ Garcia about his running journey.

And, because you can never keep a conversation between me and Jorge under an hour, we had to split this episode into two parts. This week, in part two, we talk…

Is it too early for that? Maybe. Well, okay, yes it is. But, I’m a planner, this is my blog … and I am determined to reach my 180th race this July at the Handcart Days Half Marathon here in Bountiful. It has…

Thyroids, Ankles & Blurry Eyes …

Yesterday was a marathon of a day. A day of doctor appointments. I find it easier to just take a day off from work and get as many doctor appointments in as I can. I made appointments for the orthopedist, endocrinologist and optometrist — also known as the foot doctor, thyroid doctor and eye doctor. It really was a marathon of a day. My first appointment was with the orthopedist at TOSH Foot & Ankle…

The bet is still on, but …

Ugh. Can I type that again? Ugh. It’s been a tough 8-9 months for me. After running 40 miles in 12 hours at the Jackpot Running Festival last February — I had the audacity to believe that I could do 100 miles at the 2018 event a year later. It actually really wasn’t a belief, it was a confidence that not only was it possible — but, beyond doable. I was excited to tackle this…
