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…

This is Bananas …

Running has become a large part of who I am — a very large part. And, it’s something I want it be a part of me throughout my lifetime. When I made my goal to run 180 races by age 40 — I did so because I wanted running to be a challenge that took me a decade or so to acheive. Well, I am 35 — going on 36 in August — and I…

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…

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…

The 94th Fartlek Friday™ – Pizza Hut has failed us all — the future contains NO dehydrated pizza

If you couldn’t tell … I’m quite a fan of Back to the Future. I’ve always loved the trilogy. I remember seeing Back to the Future III in the theater with some friends of mine. I think it was one of the first movies I saw in the theater without parents? Well, it was either that or The Little Mermaid. But, for the sake of looking cool, I’m going to say BTTFIII. The trilogy is…

A raceless weekend update … what should I do with myself?

I won’t lie, it’s kinda strange not having a race this weekend. I should have. I was originally signed up to the Corner Canyon 25K in Draper, but I sold the spot because we held a Bugout Run this weekend. Slightly, bummed … but … not really. I committed to the races months and months ago and another reason why I am not racing AS MUCH in 2016 then this year. But, that’s a post…
