Tomorrow is December – I’m still running barefoot/vff’s and trails. YES!!!!

When you run barefoot you can expect to feel some aches and pains in your feet and ankles when doing some hard training — especially when you wake up in the morning. At least that is my experience. What I did not expect was blood in my urine when I returned from a fast 8 [...]
My Dad had a heart attack directly related to diet and stress in 1992, and again this year he needed a number of stents put in to open some severe blockages. I made some changes in my life, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, and doing a few repeats up the hill on my bike every day, but I kept the Mountain Dew habit, and the stressful job. … We were under direct orders to eat everything on our plate, and if for any reason we left food on the plate we were served up a good dose of guilt “don’t you know people are starving in Africa.”
Half way into the Sapper Joe 50K I was craving carbonation. I was saving a can of Guru for after the race and I slammed it during the race. The craving did not come back even after the race. So I thought I would put up this poll to see if any of you out [...]
Here is a couple of pictures from running up and down Angels Landing in Zion’s National Park. I brought my Five’s as I thought the surface might be too rough. Did not wear them.

What good is a run without pushups at the top.

There is a new trail next to Barrel Roll, in Santa Clara, that I discovered last week. I realized that this trail did not exist a few weeks ago. I was completely stoked to make this discovery, thinking to myself, that this trail rivals the best in Southern Utah. I found the trail while on [...]
As a Clydesdale endurance athlete I am struggling with how to ditch my belly fat. I am putting in longer and longer LSD runs and my muscle mass increases, my body fat on my arms, chest, and legs decreases, but my belly stays the same. If I eat too little I crash. My Garmin typically [...]
I have an out and back run into Snow Canyon State Park from my home that I just love. The last time I ran it, I was barefoot, in preparation for the St. George Marathon. So in preparation for the Salt Lake City Marathon I put this 16 mile run under my belt again barefoot.
On a trip to Provo Utah this past Saturday I leisurely repaired my Vibram Five Finger KSO’s. Today was my first run since the repairs were made. I did a fast and hard 10 mile run on both trails and asphalt. I have photographed the results of my repair job for all to see.
As you [...]
Before running the St. George Marathon I buried my Huaraches in the desert. So I was left to run my favorite trails Barefoot. So I was quite surprised to find a $100 gift certificate in the mail from www.wasatchrunningcenter.com for a pair of Vibram Five Fingers. It was like early Christmas when they arrived last December.
Since that time I have [...]
