That Time I Accidentally Ran 22 Miles

“Oh, you’ve got this nice gymnasium floor.” And I do. It is cool. But dude works here. And I was probably the fifth gymnasium apartment he’d visited. The floor was not a new experience for him. The problem was. I forgot that maintenance was coming through to check the sprinklers. And I’m currently unemployed. So … Continue reading That Time I Accidentally Ran 22 Miles

Leadville Heavy Half

Y'all heard of this? Leadville Heavy Half? Not quite the Leadville 100. But not just a standard half marathon either. 15.5 miles. At 10,500 feet. And climbing on up above 13,000 feet. In Leadville, Colorado. As I've already mentioned. There is no oxygen in Colorado. These people just surviving on weed and views. We at … Continue reading Leadville Heavy Half

Leadville Training

“So you’ve just given J-Vicious all day to plan your workout.” *sigh* I know... Monday morning. I was lying in the comfort of Magical Roanoke Yoga’s basement. Allowing her to massage. And yoga my body. Into various states of stretching. And relaxation. I can’t even describe how amazing it is to have someone else stretching … Continue reading Leadville Training

A Little Late for the Cove

Look. We’ve done some shit. Rogue and I both have done some legit shit. In just the last few years that we’ve known each other. We’ve run Chicago Marathon. And America’s Toughest Road Marathon. Did that one twice. In the same race, matter of fact. Ragnars. Trail and Road. Spartans. We’ve Trifecta’d. That shit ain’t … Continue reading A Little Late for the Cove

That Time I Accidentally Ran 15 Miles

I accidentally ran 15 miles yesterday. In my defense, maps don’t really offer accurate mileage descriptions. See what happened was. Y’all responded. En masse. To my depression and anxiety post. And a lot of y’all are runners. And I’m not gonna lie. That had me a little shook. Like, running and exercise generates serotonin and … Continue reading That Time I Accidentally Ran 15 Miles

Promiseland 50k++ April, 2021

Went for a five mile walk down the greenway yesterday. Had to use Fall Risk and Rogue as handrails. When I stepped down off of sidewalks. Or embankments. Because my body was in full revolt. After spending the entirety of Saturday running. Up and down mountains. And just to add insult to actual injury. I … Continue reading Promiseland 50k++ April, 2021

Bastardized Blue Ridge Virtual Marathon

I keep clearing my throat. I think there may still be a little piece of cheeseburger lodged in there. See, what happened was... People kept posting about the need for volunteers for Blue Ridge Marathon. And I kept worrying about how in hell I was gonna run Promiseland 50k++ the week after running Blue Ridge … Continue reading Bastardized Blue Ridge Virtual Marathon
