Want to know why I have races lined up for nearly every month of the year? Because of this - meeting someone out on the road or trail, chatting with them, struggling with them. It was this young guy's first trail race. He's a cross country runner from Bakersfield. How do I know this? Because I'm the guy cheering you on whether you're passing me, I'm passing you, or we're running toe to toe. Maybe we'll get to share some miles together, my friend.
Unfortunately this may be my last race for awhile. Doc told me I likely have a torn ACL and meniscus tear, in addition to a MCL strain. When he asked when it happened and how it got worse, a pic like this popped in my head. Clearly I love running. So much so it's hard to stop. Time now for me to volunteer and be a sherpa or cheer squad... just now from the sidelines
I may not be where I want to be, but I’m not where I used to be. I’m not going to lie, there are times that I get upset by the number I see on the scale and, believe it or not, upset about the flabby skin I see when I look at myself in the mirror. I don’t like to say that these thoughts make me hate myself cause that’s not me but I’d be lying if I told you that I felt beautiful, strong and badass all the time cause that’s not true either. What I will tell you is this, I’m grateful for days like today when I look past those negative thoughts and look at what my body can do. I’m progressing in my current sport and that’s beautiful, strong and badass to me!
What is the line between determination and stubbornness? Determination yields results. Stubbornness does not... If I'm not good to go for the slo half, I'm going to try and help volunteer and cheer! I know how much I appreciated the spectators and volunteers when it was my time to shine.

From running in shorts and a tank last week to running tights and long sleeves this morning! Not to mention ski mittens because I couldn’t find my running mittens. Luckily it was dark so no one saw!! 🤣🤣🤣😳 #neverstopever#trimafia#vendettaraceteam19
