Cue up the “Rocky” music…

As I sit down to write this, I just realized that it is exactly two months until the Traveller. Feeling great after a solid week of training. I was able to get in 50.7 miles and had a long one that was a bit over 18. Looking to build on it and get in another…

Ten Weeks to Traveller…. Well 68 days.

Preparations for the Arkansas Traveller 100 mile have gone super smoothly so far this year. For me that started on the drive home from Camp Ouachita last October, after crewing/pacing our friend Justin in the 2016 version. Sure I’ve had other races in the mean time but every thing in the last year has been…

Carson Footwear-Review

I have been very excited about writing a Carson Footwear review for quite a while now. With over 550 miles at this point in time, shared between 2 different pairs of Carson’s (over 400 on my Stingers), I feel that I am fully prepared to give a thorough and proper one. I want to mention…

Mt. Magazine 18 Mile Fun Run

I come to you today with a story of triumph and pride. This story will show determination and sweat. This story is my journey down and up Mt. Magazine (the tallest mountain in Arkansas). At a distance Mt. Magazine looks like a hill with the top cut off. It is covered in beautiful trees and…

2 Months to Beaverhead…5 Months to Traveller.

As I was in my shop this morning, putting the finishing touches on a set of irons that I had just built it hit me like a ton of bricks. Today is May 8th, and that means I am exactly 2 months out from the Beaverhead 100k! Now I wouldn’t say that I had a…

Mt. Magazine Trail Work Day

On the 15th of April, Summer and I were able to lend a hand at a trail work day on the Mt. Magazine trails. We both ran the 18 mile race that is put on by AURA(Arkansas Ultra Runners Assoc.) last year and are registered to run again this year. Mt. Magazine is home to…

Primal Journey Has Begun

Have you ever heard a podcast and what they were saying just clicked? Josh had me listen to Primal Endurance # 46 with Jeff Browning (a favorite ultra runner). He started to talk about the dietary changes he has made and how they have benefited his life and running. It all made sense to me. We lived a 90% healthy lifestyle, but had occasional…

ABF Marathon…. First DNF

It’s hard to put into words a race that I have DNFed (did not finish), but I will do my best. I will also try not to whine as much as possible, but this was a hard race. There were positives that came out of this experience, not just pain and agony 🙂 Lets start with a little…

Trailmanners-Beaverhead 100k Contest Winner!!!

If you’re like me then you enter a ton of contests on Facebook and all over the social media outlets. 99.9% of the time we never hear back and think nothing of it. So when my favorite podcast, Trailmanners, mentioned their contest for a free entry to the sold out Beaverhead 100k I figured “why…

So humbled and excited to announce that I have joined the Ruhn Co. team! Ruhn Co. is a new, up and coming apparel company that specializes in seamless technology on an impressive lineup of compression gear. It is seriously the most comfortable clothing that I have ever worn! Not only for running but anything else…

Our 2017 Schedule…well so far

It has taken us a little bit to get our race schedule for the year hammered out. There may be a few 5 or 10k’s that we throw in for fun but we have our “A” races and the build up all set. The hardest part for me is not registering for too many races!!…

Lake Atalanta 

Today was the kinda of morning that was just too nice to not take a few pictures. On my normal run commute to work in the morning I get to hit the trail at Lake Atalanta for anywhere from 4-10 miles. I feel blessed to have this awesome trail system less than 2 miles from…
