LOOK BACK: Revolution Run

2018 will be my eighth year of running. I have done numerous races multiple times and I thought it would be fun to look back at some of these races throughout the coming year as I prepare to run the current year’s race. I have documented all of my races toward my 180 race goal on my Instagram account @joshruns180. It includes my time, the date of the race and a brief synopsis. I will…

Top 10 Race Medals of 2017

These are some of my favorite posts of the year. Each year I basically choose my Top 10 favorite race medals. There isn’t really a set criteria other than they’re my favorite and usually either catch my eye or mean something to me in relation to that race. The Runtastic Trilogy Medal is on the top of the list and shouldn’t be much of a surprise considering it also won The Joshby for Medal of…

My Top 10 Races of 2017

As part of Joshby Week, I rank both my favorite races and race medals (coming tomorrow). Today I am ranking my top 10 favorite races of 2017. After doing over 33 races I’ve had a number to choose. I won’t lie, it was tough. I’ve had a number of awesome experiences, moments, triumphs — and quite a few defeats too. But, that’s a whole other post for another day. Needless to say, it’s been an…

The Joshbys 2017: Family & Friend Nominees

I love this time of the year. Well, I love most everything of this time of the year — I love the time spent with family and friends along with the holidays. The whole Christmas thing is my favorite. Just don’t ask me to like the snow or The Christmas Shoes. Otherwise we won’t be friends. One thing that I love about December is The Joshby Awards. This is something I’ve been doing for over…

The 2017 Joshby Running Award Winners

First off, I want to thank everyone who was involved with The Joshby Running Awards this year. Not just my adorably cute announcers during the Awards Show last night, but everyone that nominated fellow runners, races, etc. for the 16 categories — and voted! I was floored that over 200 people voted for each category. Amazing. When I started The Joshbys over 12 years ago, I did it as fun way to acknowledge my family…

An update of things and whatnot …

Not going to lie, I’ve been in a funky funk lately. It’s been a challenging couple of weeks coming off of my vacation. I have the motivation, it’s just the execution of what I should or should not be doing hasn’t been there. I jumped back into my keto diet after my vacation. That hasn’t been the problem. My plan is to stick to it hardcore for the next couple of months. I will then…

… and I’m back …

After 15 days abroad — I am back! There is so, so much to say about the trip. Not only did I tour Paris, Rome, Athens and other places alongside my family, but I was able to meet cousins in Athens and Crete as well. It was a life changing trip — to say the least. But, after living out of a carry-on suitcase and on some very questionable mattresses (one in which I broke,…

KETO UPDATE: Three Months In

Well, here I am. It’s been three months since I started my keto diet. And, I reached my goal of losing 30lbs. — which I truly excited and grateful to meet. It was a weird about way getting here, but I am here. When I made the initial goal, I didn’t expect the initial weight loss. I reached my goal pretty much within about six weeks of me starting the diet. This got me excited…
