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,…

RACE #114: Thankful 13

I have a lot to be grateful for in my life. Running being one of them — and what better way to celebrate a day of gratitude than by doing something you love? This was the fourth year I’ve ran the Thankful 13 half marathon in Lehi. I love the race. It’s not only a great way to burn some extra calories before Thanksgiving dinner — but it’s a great way to share the holiday…

Fight4Fartlek — Gobble, wobble, gobble and probably more wobbling after dinner today

This is a funny week. And, Thanksgiving is kinda messing it all up. Typically, today is my Fight4Phat post and then tomorrow is Fartlek Friday. Since, I am running the Thankful 13 this morning — I figured I’d do my race report tomorrow. I hate for it to wait until Monday when it’s WAY past the race date. So, I decided to merge Fight4Phat and Fartlek Friday into one jumbled up post. Exciting, huh? But,…

The Bugout Run and getting back into the groove after the 50K … among other things I did over the weekend

It’s been a fun past few days — and looking at the calendar in the immediate future it will once again with Thanksgiving and a four-day weekend coming up. I’ve got a number of projects that I have been working on as of late. Lots to do with The Bugout Run and PrepperCon — and then some also with Operation Underground Railroad aka “O.U.R.” This is all on top of what I have going on…

My 2015 Half Marathon Schedule

So, I blogged about this sometime in November or October (I could look it up, but honestly too lazy to do it), but since I was named an Ambassador for Extra Mile Racing some of my races have changed. Plus, my goal is to hit 100 races by my birthday (August 15) by running the Park City Half Marathon. So, I’m actually restricting myself on races between now and mid-August. GASP! But, don’t worry, after…

The Running Week that was …

It’s been quite an interesting week of running for me. Actually, the past couple of weeks have been pretty interesting as far as running goes. After running the Saltair Half on November 8th I took a whole week off from running. Mainly to just let my body heal and recoup from running eight races in seven weeks … or 13 races in 12 weeks. It was a nice little sabbatical for my legs. Since then…

RACE RECAP #84: Thankful 13

I love Thanksgiving races. Not just because they help you earn your pie, but because of the atmosphere, the people and the challenge. On a day of gratitude you come together and participate in something you all love and enjoy. Okay, I lied. I run for the pie. Yesterday was my third time running the Thankful 13 Half Marathon and let me tell you … I didn’t feel guilty ONCE OUNCE eating my Thanksgiving dinner. Sure,…

Happy Thanksgiving 2014!

Welp, today’s the day, eh? The day we show our gratitude and shovel pie in our … well … pie holes. Where gluttony and gratitude stand hand in hand while we argue with family and watch crappy football all day. The more we eat the more grateful we become. Oh, tradition. God bless, tradition. Okay, so maybe you don’t subscribe to the American definition of Thanksgiving. I don’t. At least anymore. I think sometimes we…
