Race Recap: Bad Omens, A Wall and “The Pot”

Welcome to 2018; my first race of the new year, and one thing really still hasn’t changed… I’ll still find ways to harm myself in the middle of the woods surrounded by darkness, death, and poor choices. Why change what works? Prior to adventures…

Less Is More: A Guide to 2018

Someday’s it is best to be cliche. Looking through the last week of 2017, and the first week of 2018, I noted the people who braved that rabid society of judgement and departure, and posted their goals in the running/health world for the upcoming…

Volunteering Ultra: High Lonesome 100

Race Recap: Bryce Canyon & Satan’s Front Door

Running with Tank Tread: Peregrine 7 Review

While reading through the different blogs of trail running experts, with non-stop envy seeking knowledge, I noticed that so many of them have participated in reviews of equipment, gear, books, food, and shoes. It is only natural that after doing this blogging stuff for around…

Race Recap: Gravel, GOATz, & The Headless Runner

There are road races. There are trail races. Then…in the awkward, isolated corner of society; where it is damp, dark and full of poor choices is the strange, step-child hybrid: the gravel road race. For the record I am going to make the claim…

Just over a week ago I found myself in a dark room, laying on a table top in nothing but my boxers, and someone continued to grab my feet with their slimy hands. This went on for 90 minutes…. NOW THAT’S AN ATTENTION GETTER!…
