Earlier today we said goodbye to my dear friend Robert Merriman. It was a very emotional day. I am drained. So much sorrow, so much gratitude, so many laughs and so many cherished memories. I’m truly grateful and changed by his friendship — like so many within this running community of our’s here in Utah. I was able to share a few thoughts of Robert during his ‘celebration of life,’, which I was completely humbled…

To 5K or not to 5K — that is the question.

I am a big believer that good things come out of difficulties. I have seen it too many times in my life to believe it otherwise. And, because of that I’ve also learned how to roll with the punches because in the end — something good will come out the mess. This past year has really tested me in that regard.

It’s somewhat because of the winter blues, but something horrible usually happens to me or others I love during the month. I have had a number of family members either pass away or get really sick during January — and it…
