Like all races right now, Pat’sRun was a virtual one. I missed crossing the finish line in Sun Devil Stadium and the beers with friends afterwards, but still glad I got to participate in someway!Read More Pat’s Run 2020
These are definitely strange times for all of us. Who knew that just a few months into 2020 there’d be toilet paper hording and quarantines! Like many restaurants, the one that I work at is closed, which gives me quite bit of time right now. There is some work stuff to, but right now it’s […]Read More These Strange Times
I raced The Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Half Marathon this past Sunday. It had been a while since I had done this race, as I’ve said December is a tough month work wise for me, and I don’t always do the best training through it. This year I was doing good, a solid spree of […]Read More Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Half Marathon
My major December work is finished at the restaurant! It’s always the toughest month of the year for work, which translates into a tough month to train through. I was on a solid 6 day a week spree ,but finally succumbed to then need to just crank through some work, much needed rest, and the […]Read More Time To Get Back At It!
I pulled the trigger and signed up for the Rock and Roll Arizona Half Marathon. I’ve been feeling pretty good running and wanted to go ahead and commit, so much easier to maintain motivation once you’ve paid your entry fee! I haven’t been running very fast lately, but it has felt good and I’ve been […]Read More Signed Up
I’ve been trying to get back on the running train lately. It’s been a few years since I was really running a good amount and I miss it. It can be a great morning workout, much quicker than a bike ride, and a great way to clear the head before a busy day. I’ve felt […]Read More Running!

For a long time I’ve been able to deal with and train through the summer, but in the past few years it has really started to effect me. I […]Read More The Summer Heat is Bringing Me Down
AKA: There Will Be Sweating The yearly Colorado backpacking trip can be a challenge, mainly because of the altitude. Coming up from Phoenix, AZ (elevation 1086’), makes for a tough first few days. I like to enjoy myself as much as possible, call me crazy, so being fit is the only way to get past […]Read More Time to Train for the Summertime Adventures
Like always Pat’s Run was an awesome, inspiring experience. With excellent hanging out afterwards! Hopped the Light Rail to get down to Tempe, a wise choice. The National Anthem, belted on a trumpet is very cool. Then with Jake Plummer’s starting horn, we were off to the races!Read More Pat’s Run 2019
Pat’s Run, the race honoring Pat Tillman, was April 26th in Tempe, Az. This was the 10th year, and like always, they had a huge turnout! I woke up about 5 and grabbed some coffee as I headed towards downtown Tempe. Walking to the start area you are in a sea of the yellow race […]Read More Pat’s Run
