This race was forever ago, the beginning of December. I’ve written two different drafts on it, but I didn’t like them. So here it is. TL;DR — I got 4th place in a 46 miler against some stellar runners. There were a bunch of mistakes made by everyone, and it was a cold, rainy , muddy … Continue reading Pine Mountain – GUTS 46 Miler
I haven’t posted any writings in a minute, so here’s a post of Post-Its. Share the power of doodles! *Nothing Against Eric Church, I actually just needed to make a note on a Post-It* So there! I am actually so much better at drawing than writing, I know. I’ll return to that lesser art of … Continue reading Post of Post Its
Alright weirdos, Paris Mountain Ultra is this weekend. I’ll be volunteering/sweeping the course, so try to stay alive out there, I can only carry so many bodies. Unless you’re a crazy person chasing podium, power march those ascents, and I guess roll like a Goron downhill. I’m excited to revisit the course, and to support the nutters … Continue reading Paris Mt Ultra Time

Sometimes you’ll use all fours climbing the path. A section of the trail tosses you into a Tarzan-esque … Continue reading Anybody Considering Running the Paris Mountain 50k, Do It!
Just wanted to give everyone a chance to see the impressive display of toenails at ultrarunnerpodcast.com. If the grotesque awesomeness of ultrarunner feet does not sit well with your stomach, maybe this gallery isn’t for you. But, it’s still pretty delightful how proud people are of their destroyed foot parts. Check out ultrarunnerpodcast’s Black Toenail … Continue reading Ultra Toenails
Obviously, I like running. Some would even go so far as to say that I love it. It takes up substantial amounts of my time throughout the week. A lame-ass retail job with cool co-workers, running, wiggle-dances with my dog for housemates and friends, and sleeping. These are my most timely commitments. Sometimes, it takes … Continue reading Running and That Other Stuff
