RACE #158: Nebo Half

NEBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I love this race. Absolutely love. I would marry it if I could. But, alas, I can’t marry races — which is pretty sad. But, that won’t displace the Nebo Half within my hearts of hearts. The course race holds my PR (2:08) that I set back in 2013. I am nowhere near that pace right now — and that’s okay. That can of worms is a post and a half for another day….

Experiencing the “Keto Krash” …

Remember how, when I started this diet, I said that I didn’t know what I was doing? Yeaaaaaah — last Saturday — I had NO idea what I was doing. While running the Run Elevated Half Marathon down Little Cottonwood here in Salt Lake, I totally crashed. Not the kind of crash where you fall down scrape your knees and whatnot, but physically, mentally and emotionally — CRASHED. It took me almost over a half…

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: Timp Half

WOOWEE! What a race! I ran the Timp Half this morning down in American Fork. One of my favorite canyons and races — seriously. It’s hard to compete with AF Canyon in beauty and grandeur. Big Cottonwood Canyon is up there — but, AF Canyon is my favorite northern Utah canyon by a landslide (probably not the best use of words there, huh?). With this being my third race in the past week I didn’t…

Reshuffling my 2016 race schedule a tad …

Ugh. I’ve had to reshuffle a few of my races this year — again. I’m sad and happy about it. I’m sad, because I am going to have to drop the Nebo Half — my favorite race and goal race for the summer. But, I’m happy because I have a good excuse to miss it. No, I’m not getting married. But, I’ll be spending time with family in Idaho and Wyoming — specifically the South…

UPDATE: My 2016 Race Schedule

With the recent changes to my race schedule — including the addition of the Pony Express Trail 50 a few weeks back I thought I’d update my race schedule some. Most of these races I am racing — but, there are a couple that I am pacing with the RYR Pacers — namely the Alpine Half, Haunted Half and Thankful 13. All in which I will be sweeping. So you can be guaranteed to see…

Frigid 5K, Polar Plunge & other things I did in the snow …

First off, the title I wrote kinda sounds dirty, no? I did nothing else in the snow this weekend other than run and walk in it. Oh, wait, I did shovel. But, that shouldn’t count. But, I had an awesomely short weekend (the short ones are always the fun ones right?) — I had my second race of the year — the Frigid 5K — in Provo. I ran alongside Tim the whole way. Of…

The 2015 Joshby Running Awards

This is my eighth year doing The Joshby Awards — when I began my life was much, much, MUCH different. The biggest difference — my weight — and lack of running. It’s easy to say that my life is the life of a runner. It’s changed and impacted my life in many ways. I’ve been giving Joshby Running Awards now for a few years and while the nomination and selection committee is me, myself and…
