I’ve planned out my races pretty much from here until July 21st when I run my 180th race. I have…

The Road to πŸ’―

Between processing the loss of my friend Robert Merriman and missing the Jackpot Ultra Running Festival — it’s kinda left me in a bit of a funk. Not a fun place to be. I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason. I’ve seen God’s hand in my life too many times to deny that….

Running from here onto July …

It’s somewhat because of the winter blues, but something horrible usually happens to me or others I love during the month. I have had a number of family members either pass away or get really sick during January — and it…
