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…

The Joshbys 2017: Friends & Family Winners

** EDIT: I thought I pushed PUBLISH a couple of days ago. I did not. So here you are. ** I have been doing The Joshbys now for 12 years. I laugh that this has lasted this long, because — I started it as a tongue in cheek way of labeling my favorite siblings. But, I get asked about it every year around November and December. Especially when a friend felt slighted from the previous…

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…

RACE #163: The Haunted Half — Salt Lake City

I absolutely love running in October — for many reasons. I love the cool October air, the changing leaves and the plethora of races during the month. You’d think July and August would be the most popular month to run, but it’s too hot during the summer months. October is PERFECT conditions for running. Earlier in the year I wasn’t planning on running The Haunted Half, but those plans changed when I resigned my position…

The 2016 Joshby Awards Family & Friends Winners!

The goal was to have these awards out — LIKE — two days ago? HA! Didn’t happen. I’ve been pretty dang busy. And, I am fine with that. Plus, I wanted to write a little blurb about each of the winners — but, time did not permit me to do so. So, I blurbed on a couple of the key winners. But, seriously, I am thankful for all of the nominees and winners. The impact…

InstaReplay: Revel Big Cottonwood Marathon

My race report will come here either tomorrow or Tuesday. Really just depends if and when I don’t die. But, below are some of the pictures from the Revel Big Cottonwood Marathon that I ran yesterday morning. Needless to say, it was tough. I am sore. I am slightly dead. And, I had a heck of time. It was a lot of fun. From the pre-race dinner to the pre-race festivities to the race itself…

Monday Morning Runner

It was a weekend of ups and downs for me. Luckily it was more of an up than a down for me. But, more on that later. I ran the Beat the Heat 5K with my friend Jordan on Saturday. This was Jordan’s first 5K and quite the accomplishment for him. I shared a good portion of his story on Friday, but Jordan has cerebral palsy so running doesn’t come naturally or easy for him….
