This should be my 2017 race schedule …

Okay, I think I’ve got my complete 2017 race schedule figured out. I think. Which is a definite maybe. But, let me explain it a little bit. I have a race each month except December. I might add a race in December, but I am not planning on it. It’s a good rest month after a long year of running. My busiest month is June. I have seven races planned for the month. Yes, seven….

RACE #125: Utah Midnight Run

I’ve said this a lot the past week — but, I’ll say it again. It’s kinda hard to believe that I’ve ran 125 races in my 180 race goal so far. I’ll be celebrating the fifth anniversary of the beginning of this little journey this weekend when I run the Handcart Days Half. Not only was that my first half marathon, but it was my 100th as well. So, naturally, it has a special place…

#FitnessFriday: A Midnight Run, Pokemon Go and some Whole30 fun …

FRIDAY, FRIDAY, FRIDAY! I haven’t been this excited for Friday — since — last Friday! I definitely work for the weekend. It’s been a good and productive week, but I am ready for a reprieve. And, summer weekends are the best at providing that. It’s actually been a really good week — had a few really good runs. Not so much the physically great, but the emotionally great runs. I had a double run day…

RACES #101 and #102: Utah Midnight Run & Timp Half

A funny thing happened this past weekend. I went into the weekend planning on just running the Timp Half. Well, actually, I was planning on pacing it. And, then come Thursday night I added another race to the docket and ended up doing another back-to-back all-night half marathon. I might have a running problem. Might. I really didn’t mind doing it for a number of reasons. First, I was sweeping the course for both races…

RACES #96 & #97: Utah Midnight Run and AF Canyon Race Against Cancer

Go ahead and push play on the AC/DC video above. I might have gotten this song stuck in my head two to too many times the other night. But, it is a fairly fitting theme song for the back-to-back feat. Because there was NO sleep going Friday night. Just running. Along with some Denny’s, but mostly running and waiting around for busses. This is the third time I have attempted this feat. And, the second time…

RACE RECAP #67: Utah Midnight Half

Ugh. Can I say that again? Ugh. Triple ugh. Quadruple ugh. Fiftruple ugh? I’m pretty sure I just made that word up … but I don’t care. This run was just miserable. I’ve ran this race twice before and it’s really not THAT bad of a race. I just don’t think I want to really do it again in the future. Let me explain myself here. When I ran it in 2012 I did as a…

All-Night Marathon: COMPLETE

Welp, I did it. I accomplished my goal of running a back-to-back half marathon. That’s … TWO. HALF. MARATHONS. In two days. I’ve wanted to do this for a while and I can now finally checked it off my Honey Bucket List. I won’t lie folks, this was one of the toughest things I’ve done. Tougher than a marathon even though I ran the same distance. I underestimated the the affect of running a half marathon after…

The All-Night Marathon: Farmington Edition

Welp, my dreams are coming true tonight (there really isn’t anything to read into that statement). I am running my first back-to-back half marathons. I tried to do this last year when my friends the Gabicas and I were planning on running the Utah Midnight Half on Friday night and then drive up to Idaho Falls to run a half marathon up there. But, the second leg of our journey was for nought after Jill…
