For the 144 …

This past week has been a VERY emotional week for not just me, but lots of people — nationwide and within my circle of friends. It’s been a week full of sadness, somberness, reflection, anger and frustration. Sometimes separately, sometimes concurrently. It didn’t help that the week started with the news of the Vegas Shooting. I woke up at 2:45am to use the restroom and couldn’t back to sleep as I was following the updates….

RACE #145: Saltair Half

Going into this race — I wasn’t having a very good week. Last weekend during the Riverton Half I started having a little pain in one of my molars.

It needed a crown, but he just couldn’t do anything…

RACE #141: March Madness Half Marathon

One thing I love about endurance sports — specifically running — is unlike other sports, like most team sports, the venue changes from event to event.

In running — especially distance running — distances may be the same, but courses (or playing fields) all differ. And, I love that. A race down…

Focusing on the road ahead …

It’s been a funny week. My mileage wasn’t as it ought to have been. But, I kinda expected that. Since I started working with Runtastic Events that’s kind of expected on race weeks. I had this idea about running 4-5 miles after I got home from the race on Saturday — but, yeah, no. Too tired. But, it wasn’t that bad of a week. I got a few really KILLER workouts in that made up…
