RACE #170: New Year’s Revolution Run

It’s hard to believe that this is the seventh time I’ve run this race. I still remember the first I ran it back in 2011 — I ran it alone. I didn’t know anyone, I didn’t even talk to anyone. I just came, did my miles and went home. I am a surprised that I came back the following year with that kind of experience. But, I did. This has actually become a race I…

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…

Running in 2018 …

A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about my road to 180 races. My 180th race will be July 24th — pretty much SMACK in the middle of the year. So that means I’ve got January through July pretty much covered — but, what about the last half? What’s after my 180th race? That’s a good question. While I am trying to figure out my 2018 race schedule, I’ve had a couple focuses — one,…

I am soooooo close to my goal …

Wow. After this past weekend’s race — I realized that I am only 19 races away from my goal! NINETEEN! I’m in the TEENS! Time flies so fast. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been doing this now for over six years. But, it’s also hard to believe that I am reaching this 10 year goal — three years early! Who would have thought? Who would have imagined the experiences I’ve had, races I’ve run…

RACE #116: 2016 New Year’s Revolution Run

I love the new year — new possibilities, new goals, new focuses. It’s like a new clean slate. And, then on the other hand — it’s a great time to just refocus and recommit to your goals as well. I love this time of the year, because there’s a lot energy that carries me into the new year. In what has become somewhat of a tradition once again started off the new year running the…

RACE RECAP #85: New Year’s Revolution Run

And, we’re back! Welcome to 2015 and welcome to the first half marathon of the year. It’s kind of fitting that it would be on New Year’s Day. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the first day of the year. Well, I could … a Disney vacation, tropical getaway in Fiji and/or anywhere where it doesn’t snow. But, still, a running a half marathon is a pretty awesome way to kickoff 2015….

The 53rd Fartlek Friday™ – So this is 2015? Where’s my hoverboard?

Welp, this is it. This is 2015. What has changed so far? Well, the calendar for one thing. Other than that not much. So much for having hoverboards like Back to the Future tolds us we would have. And, dehydrated pizzas. Actually, it’s probably best that we don’t have that. I could picture myself eating one before it was hydrated and then unwittingly downing with a Pepsi Free causing a SERIOUS stomach ache. Now I…
