Utah National Park Tour: Zion

Final day of our five day five park tour. And it’s raining. Like constant rain. Just all damn day. Raining. And I don’t know about y’all. But driving into a canyon during an all day rainstorm feels…sketchy. Like, perhaps we shouldn’t be provoking the universe like that? But we’re nothing if not the sort of … Continue reading Utah National Park Tour: Zion

Utah National Park Tour: Bryce Canyon

Air bnb dude: “Have you ever seen the Milky Way?” My dumbass responding excitedly: Yes! Air bnb dude: *looking at me skeptically* Fall Risk: *staring at me confused* My dumbass justifying my response: At my old house. I could see all kinds of shit. And then I threw in something about light pollution to make … Continue reading Utah National Park Tour: Bryce Canyon

Utah National Park Tour: Capitol Reef

Day three of no breakfast. Or dinner. I clearly owe Fall Risk’s co-worker an apology. We headed out this morning. Fueled with the knowledge that we were heading towards Giffords House Pies. Under the belief that. If we didn’t get there before 11:30am. We’d miss out on the pies. That would sell out by then. … Continue reading Utah National Park Tour: Capitol Reef

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
