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…

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…

Carson Footwear Ambassador Team!!

Sooo….. we are now Carson footwear ambassadors!!! Josh and I are so excited. I thought that there was no way they would choose me (I knew Josh was a shoe-in). When Josh text me that he was in, I was happy and jelly at the same time, but he told me to check my e-mail. I did, the surprised feelings I had were wonderful….

Altra Olympus 2.0- Review

Since they came out and I got my hands on some, the Altra Lone Peak 3.0’s have been my go to shoe. After close to 400 miles on a pair I found myself around 30 miles into the Back 40 trail race. Thanks to my trusty Mino shoe trackers I knew that this was going…

Putting together an amazing team for 2017!!

You start at the bottom of “Groms”, go up through “Controlled Burn” and finish at the highest point of “Backbone”. The segment is…

Womens Altra Neoshell Lone Peak 3.0

I have always been an Altra fan. I love the wide toe box and how they fit my feet. I have multiple styles of their shoes lining my closet. I have road and trail styles. I’ve not come across one of their shoes that I do not like. Today I want to talk about their…
