Why Do YOU Run?


Hello and Happy day to you!

Last week I challenged you to share with me the reasons why you do this crazy thing called running.

The response that I received was overwhelmingly awesome!

It was so cool to read everyone’s reasons, because they are all so different.

Looking for some motivation?

Read the stories below and I bet one of them will light a fire under your caboose.

I know it has for me!

So let’s get to it…

Hello and Happy day to you!

As many of you know, I just (praise the Lord!) recovered from a minor hamstring injury that forced me to pull out of Rock n’ Roll San Diego.


But! I am back running and haven’t had any problems with my hamstring since.


I do, however, feel as though I have lost some fitness.

Or maybe it is in my head?

Who knows.

I am feeling a little off this week. Continue reading

Hello and Happy day to you!


As a runner, there are certain things that really piss me off!

I am sure most people don’t understand, but maybe you (being a fellow runner) will agree with me…

1. When some moron sprints ahead and then stops in front of me in the middle of a race.

Pull your head out of your ass, man! I mean come on! It’s called peripheral vision, use it and check out your surroundings before you come to a complete freakin’ stop. I understand that you are tired, but really? Continue reading

Modesto Half Marathon Race Review & Recap


I can’t believe that the Modesto Half Marathon was over 2 weeks ago.

As I mentioned yesterday, my vacation to Arizona and San Francisco royally threw me out of wack, so I apologize for the late post.

If you read my pacing blog post, you already know that I had a blast pacing this race.

It was an absolutely amazing experience!

But, I digress… We already talked about that.


What about the race itself, man?!?!

San Francisco Hot Chocolate 15K Race Review & Recap


On Sunday, January 10, 2016 I ran for chocolate.

Although I usually run for bloody Marys, or pancakes… on this special day- I made an exception.

This race was off the charts awesome!
