When Motivation is Not Present

Do we always have motivation? Are we always driven? Do we always complete the goals we set for ourselves? For me, the answer is NO. I’m not always feeling it. I don’t always want to write. I don’t always want to run. I don’t always want to make my posts on my social media accounts….

An ambitious build up to the OHT 50K…

If you know me and/or follow the blog, you’ll know that I like to have a schedule planned out. It makes it much easier for me to prepare mentally and always helps to get me out of bed for an early morning run to work. As of this point, I will be waiting like everybody…

2018 Arkansas Traveller 100

Just like the 2017 version, the 2018 Arkansas Traveller 100 mile foot race was a scorcher! Personally, I have always done well in the heat but it makes for a tough day for the entire field. Who am I kidding?! It makes for a brutal day for everyone involved. Well, I asked for it and…

Carson Footwear: 10/10 Vs. 12/12

I have been wearing Carson shoes for almost two years. When I first started with the cheetah print pair, there was only the 10/10 mm sole. I fell in love with the shoe. I wore them at all times, to work, to run, to walk. They made my feet feel amazing. I no longer had…

NWA Traverse: The what, how and why.

These days it can be so easy to watch a video on the internet and without even thinking twice say, “Oh I could do that”. It didn’t go down exactly like that, but it was a brash idea after watching one that led to what ended up being called the NWA Traverse. The inspiration came…

Mt. Nebo Trail Run: 14 Miles

I have never raced much. It is nerve racking, making me see things in myself that I haven’t seen in a while, things that I need to work on. I’ve decided to do the hard thing, race more, train more. So to hype myself up for my adventures I am going to write about my…

Full Moon 50k….Puke and Rally

This article has been a long time coming. I’ve had some writers block, and lack of mental energies, which does not make for the best of writing. Many things happen during the 50k race. Throwing up is one of them. Along with leg, cramps, mental clarity, pain, determination, and a plethora of others. For me,…

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…. W´╗┐ell 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…
