We all spend hundreds of dollars on running shoes thinking they will make us faster, then Meb goes out and wins the Boston Marathon running in a pair of Skechers.

I feel this on a personal level.

Mebs Skechers are over $100 which is more expensive then a good amount of marathon racing flats, it’s not like he’s running in a pair from Fred Meyers or Target

  4. i like to think i’ve inspired at least one person

Anonymous asked: what are tips for scheduling runs as a student

just wake up early or run during the day, its pretty simple once you get a schedule worked out.  Just gotta stay committed to it.  Right now I’m a full time student, work 30+ hours a week and still run.  

All the compression!

All the compression!

So instead of buying my cap and gown to walk for graduation I bought new compression gear… And it is awesome!

Its made by 110% and the concept is it combines compression with ice so you can start your recovery immediately. The gear has pockets so you can slide the flexible ice packs directly into them. Definitely a solid purchase.

Race photos from the 1/2 marathon this weekend. So much fun with everybody just taking it easy and enjoying the day. Talked and laughed the whole way up the 2500 ft climb then cruised down the back side. Finished the race then turned around and ran back to Alex, ended with close to 17 miles and 4000’ gain.

I really loved this weekend. Went and ran the Robie Creek 1/2 marathon with Alex and all of our friends, laid around in the grass after, just spent every second of this weekend together. I am so in love with this girl, I can’t wait to spend our lives together.

Ran the Race to Robie Creek Saturday, consists of a 2400 foot climb in 8.5 miles, then 4.5 miles down.  At the summit grabbed a nice cold IPA from a friend then knocked out 6 minute miles to the finish.  Was a good day.

One more day till I get to see Alex and two days till we get to spend the day racing a trail 1/2 marathon and hanging out together.

It’s been a month since I’ve seen her, this weekend can’t come fast enough.

Here is the video of my proposal at the finish line of Antelope Island 100 mile to Alex.  I’ve shared the pictures but forgot that I uploaded the video and then got some questions if we had a video.  So here it is
