These are things that I really don’t need to carry, but I find worth it. As my buddy, Josh says, “I carry less so I can bring more”. REI Flexlite Chair: This stupid chair is probably the most unnecessary item I carry, but I love it. There is something incredibly nice about having a dry … More Backpacking Luxuries
Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor/lawyer/scientist. I have been running for over two decades, as much as 70 miles per week and as little as zero. I’ve been injured a handful of times and it sucks. I came to a point where I was getting injured frequently and considered not running anymore, but it’s a lifestyle … More Injury Free Running

I found the best price and free … More New Balance MT100, SWEET!
In short, the race was a great experience and a lot was learned, but I have to admit that I ran quite a bit slower than my goal. I was aiming for a finish of 3:30 and ended up at 4:08. I based my goal time on my 24 mile run that I completed in … More “Race” Report: Denver Marathon
