Today, 1 year ago, 2 years ago

One year ago today I was on a plane to Boston with my wife and parents to run the Boston Marathon.

The year before that I was running the first official race I really trained for which was the Robie Creek Half Marathon.

And today, I found found myself on Rocky Canyon road which is the Robie Creek course for a 22 mile run that will in all likelihood be my last long run before my second 100 mile race in two weeks.

As I ran it first by myself and then later with my friend Mike Blessing I thought of how far I have come.  When I trained for Robie in 2010 I ran that road so many times I could tell you where ever rock and every pothole was. Today it felt very different.  I have only been on Rocky Canyon 3 times in the last 6 months.  But, it brought a smile to my face to see all the runners out putting in the miles for the race next Saturday.  I will be running it with Michelle which will be fun!


  1. Your story is so inspiring!! Have you ever heard of Jill Knapp from Idaho. She lost 100 pounds after getting a diagnosis with type 2 diabetes. I found your story on Youtube. You should google Jill knapp and hook up with her. You should start to share your stories together. I am so inspired by both of you!! Keep up the good work. I am down 22 pounds since following Jill's success and driving from her motivation to get fit and live healthy. Keep up the good work. Your Awesome!

    1. Thanks Leslie, I think I have met her before briefly. Congratulations on your success! Keep me updated on your progress and let me know if you have any questions I can help with. I love helping other people because it reminds me that I was there myself which motivates me to keep moving forward!
