RACE #162: Jordan River Half Marathon

One of my greatest learned life lessons didn’t come from my Dad, a grandparent or some guru — it actually came from Kenny Rogers. Back in 1978 — before I was even a twinkle in my parents’ eyes, Kenny Rogers came out with a song called The Gambler with this advice — You’ve got to know when to hold ’em Know when to fold ’em Know when to walk away Know when to run You…

RACE #147: Jordan River Half Marathon

YEAH, I’M RACING!!! After a couple weeks of low mileage and uncertainty with my ankle it sure felt great being back on the course. Albeit, nowhere close to the pace or time I expected a couple months ago. But, I was running and that’s what mattered. The past month or so has been tough. Well, the past couple of months have. Okay, maybe the past three months? Setbacks big and small have kind of plagued…

This should be my 2017 race schedule …

Okay, I think I’ve got my complete 2017 race schedule figured out. I think. Which is a definite maybe. But, let me explain it a little bit. I have a race each month except December. I might add a race in December, but I am not planning on it. It’s a good rest month after a long year of running. My busiest month is June. I have seven races planned for the month. Yes, seven….

RACE #93: TOSH Jordan River Half Marathon

In what seems like eternity, I finally got a race that I didn’t need to wear rain gear for! Than again, I didn’t get much cloud cover either so the temperatures weren’t the most ideal. But, still … NO RAIN! I’ve been looking forward to this race for a couple of weeks. Originally, I was planning on pacing last week, but since I was off modeling up in Ogden I had to cancel that. So…

So, I’m officially a male model …

Talk about a resume builder. I am now officially a male model. It’s been a long and arduous road, but I’ve finally made it. I guess technically I would be a considered a “plus-size” male model under most model “standards” … but still … I am one. So how did I become a male model? Well, for one, I am ridiculously good looking. So there’s that. But, also because I was modeling for something that…

My 2015 Half Marathon Schedule

So, I blogged about this sometime in November or October (I could look it up, but honestly too lazy to do it), but since I was named an Ambassador for Extra Mile Racing some of my races have changed. Plus, my goal is to hit 100 races by my birthday (August 15) by running the Park City Half Marathon. So, I’m actually restricting myself on races between now and mid-August. GASP! But, don’t worry, after…
