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 #146: Provo City Half Marathon

This past week has been a struggle — to say the least. After getting sick during the Salt Flats 50K last Friday my whole weekend and most of this past week was simply derailed. I’m still not 100%, but I am past the flu and bronchitis and I feel much, much better. Having DNF’d the Salt Flats 50K and DNS’d the Tulip Festival Half — I was ready for a race success this weekend. Not…

RACES #96 & #97: Utah Midnight Run and AF Canyon Race Against Cancer

Go ahead and push play on the AC/DC video above. I might have gotten this song stuck in my head two to too many times the other night. But, it is a fairly fitting theme song for the back-to-back feat. Because there was NO sleep going Friday night. Just running. Along with some Denny’s, but mostly running and waiting around for busses. This is the third time I have attempted this feat. And, the second time…

RACE RECAP #90: Provo City Half

Can you believe that I am officially HALF way to my goal? 90 races is A LOT of races, but at the same time I feel like I know each one personally. This is one reason I know I was born with the hoarder gene. If these my races were cats it would be safe to assume you wouldn’t want to step inside my house. But, I digress. Really though, I feel like each race…

A different kind of ‘BURN’

Oh, adventures … they’re pretty fun to have sometimes. Especially when go on them with friends. But, the adventure I had on Saturday morning actually wasn’t suppose to happen. Why? How? Welp, I totally spaced it and missed my race that I was signed up for, “The Burn.” You know, the race that put on by Extra Mile Racing (EMR) … which I am an ambassador for. Yeah … I suck at life. Or at…

RACE RECAP #81: Howloween Half Marathon

This race report is a continuation of my race recap #80 of The Haunted Half which was ran on the same day in the morning as this race. This race was ran in the evening making my running ‘ventures for the day a double half marathon day. #totesfun This is kind of a strange race report to write. It really just feels like a continuation of my previous race recap. Which in a way it…

I did it! I did it! Two Half Marathons in one day!

I love these little challenges. Back in July, I ran back-to-back half marathons that I dubbed an “All-Night Marathon.” I am not sure if there’s really a special name you would call this feat? Maybe, stupid? lol … okay, no. But, close. I ended up running the Haunted Half in Provo in the morning and then the Howloween Half Marathon back in Provo later that night. There was about a five hour rest period between races…
