RACE #166: The Haunted Half — Provo City

I am winding down on so much right now — not only am I winding down on my 2017 race schedule, but my 180 goal as well. This was my 29th race over 13.1 miles this year and fourth to last. That’s a lot of running. Then on top of that this is the 15th to the last race of my 180 race goal. That last one is a harder one to process than this…

RACE #165: Howloween Half Marathon

[CLICK HERE FOR MY SOJO HALF RACE REPORT] After getting home from the SoJo Half I had an agenda — get some food and take a nap. Unfortunately, I only succeeded in one of those two. I didn’t get the nap I wanted. But, after some steak and eggs I was pretty much good to go for my second race. This was the second time that I’ve done the Howloween Half. The last time it…

RACE #135: The Haunted Half — Provo

After a week off from running and pretty much anything strenuous after my 50 miler, I hopped back into the saddle with the Haunted Half. This is my sixth Haunted Half (three in Provo and three in SLC) and I love these races. They’re always a party and just tons of fun. They’re a great race to cap off the racing season. And, for the fifth time — I have also swept the course. In…

InstaReplay: The Haunted Half — Provo

The race season is slowly coming to a hault — and it’s fitting that it ends with one of my favorite races. I love the Haunted Half — it’s a gorgeous race down a beautiful canyon and just a lot of fun. Once again I’ve swept the course — this was my fifth Haunted Half I’ve swept since 2014 — that includes both Provo and SLC. And, once again, I had a blast. I was…

Frightmares 5K: Maya’s First Race

There’s a motto that I love living by. It’s simply, “Love what you do, do what you love and share what you love, with those you love.” I am sure someone probably said it before me. But, I believe that in that concept lays a key to happiness. Of course this doesn’t relate JUST to running, it’s true to any passion or love we have in our life. Being the only runner in my family I’ve…

RACE #111: The Provo Haunted Half

It’s hard to believe that this race is my second to last pacing gig of the year. I’m kinda bummed about that, because I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience I have had pacing and sweeping so many races this year. It’s really enriched my running experience. It’s taught me to (literally) slow down and enjoy the beauty that running has to offer. Saturday’s race in Provo wasn’t any different. As I have mentioned before I…

The 95th Fartlek Friday™ – So, um, this is Halloween? Can it be Christmas already? Cuz — I’ll gladly trade in all my candy corn for a chocolate Santa

Okay — let’s be honest here. I have a love/hate relationship with Halloween. Well, actually, I am not sure if I would call it love or hate — I’m indifferent. Indifferent leading towards hating it. As a kid — I loved the candy (well except for Bit-O-Honeys, peanut butter taffy and Nerds), but I hated the act of Trick-or-Treating. Kids these days have it easy — all they have to do is go to some neighborhood…
