RACE #167: Snow Canyon Half Marathon

A few months ago this weekend was very much an unknown variable. I wasn’t expecting on racing, but I wanted to. There wasn’t a half marathon in Northern Utah, but the Snow Canyon in Southern Utah was — and it’s a favorite of mine. So with some urging of friends I decided to make a quick trip of it. I figured adding another race this year would help alleviate my race schedule in 2018, especially…

RACE #132: St. George Marathon

Back in 2012 when I started marathoning I ran three marathons in three months. I thought I was nuts (I was). I never thought I would be in a situation again where I would be doing that many marathons not just within three months, but within four weeks. That’s crazy … to at least me. I know there’s nothing special about it — there are many many many more impressive feats by much much much…

InstaReplay: St. George Marathon

I’ll get a whole St. George Marathon recap up here on the bloggy blog within the next couple of days. I’m going to first let it process for a bit. I had a blast and I hit the goals I wanted to hit during the race. Well, most of them. Anyways — here are a few snaps from the weekend … and by a few, I mean a lot … ST. GEEZY OR BUST, BABY!…

The 100th Fartlek Friday™ – I feel like I should be popping some bubbly for the 100th “Fartlek Friday” — no? Okay, I’ll just take an orange juice then.

As I mentioned yesterday — I’ve had an up and down week. Mainly down because of this stupid cold. Or whatever it is? I was hoping it was just allergies — but after a couple days I realized that wasn’t the case. But, still it hasn’t been an overall bad week. Just crummy. It really was kind of a buzzkill after coming off an amazing week with the O.U.R. fundraising gala here in Bountiful. Being…

RACE #112: Snow Canyon Half Marathon

I know I gush a lot about my races — especially about the scenery and courses. But, this race — takes the cake. It’s such a beautiful course. The scenery and course instantly became one of my favorites. There is a reason why Runner’s World named this one of the best half marathons in the country. Well organized, great volunteers, beautiful course and scenery that can’t be replicated any other way than experiencing it in…

The 96th Fartlek Friday™ – It’s all about “St. George or Bust” baby!

If there are two things I hate in this world it’s Satan and snow. Which is funny — because my middle name is Snow. But, I wasn’t because of the weather element — in fact, I was born in the middle of August — it’s a family name. But, yeah, I hate the snow. That’s one reason why I am looking forward to a quick little trip this weekend to St. George in southern Utah….

RACE RECAP #86: Dogtown Half Marathon

Who let the dogs out? Who? Who? Who? Who? I am sorry, I had to get that out of my system. I just had to. But, no one really wants to reminisce much about the summer of 2000, especially when it involves the Baha Men. Please forgive me. Anyways, back to the point of this whole post … the Dogtown Half Marathon. Which was race 86 in my run towards 180. The race held each February…

The Sweethearts 5K & More …

It was a long and crazy week for me, but it sure ended on a great note. Death is never an easy process to go through, especially when it is a person that you care for a lot. And, because of the family obligations and needs I didn’t run much at all this week. Though I was able to enjoy running a 5K with Elsha here in Bountiful. The past couple of weeks I have…
