Giveaway winners, Go away negativity – TSAinTraining Week 2


Happy Monday Gangeez, hope this day finds all of you in good health and spirits.  Over here, we are ending #TSAinTraining week 2 and beginning week 3.  We are ramping up pretty quickly as we try to build up my mileage base.  On the mental side, we begin strengthening our mind and try to do away with all the negative talking that goes on between our ears.   We all do it…we all talk ourselves out of being great.  Hopefully I can help shed some light on the issue and get all of us to think a little bit more positive.

1 Year Blog Anniversary – TSAinTraining Week 1


Aloha Monday gangeez!  Long time no blog?!  Wow, it surely has been a minute since I’ve had the motivation to write.  There’s been quite a few things going on in my life and this blog unfortunately or fortunately has had to take a back seat #familyfirst.  It’s crazy though how fast the year has gone by.  Only a year ago, a very enthusiastic, naive hawaiian boy was hitting the “Publish” button for the first time.

Happy 14th Birthday Kaleo!


Hey, aloha Friday Gangeez!  Hope this Friday finds you all in good health and spirits!  Hope this is a jump off to a great weekend!  It’s been quiet here in TSA’s world.  There’s no major runs or races coming up.  I’m letting myself take a break mentally and physically.  I’ve been concentrating on cross training and trying to work on my nutrition.  So, it’s been a pretty relaxing couple of weeks.

2015 Phoenix Pride Race Recap and Takeaways


Wassup gangeez!  It’s humpday.  I hope the week is treating you well, and I hope this post finds all of you in good health and spirits!  For me, it’s been a pretty uneventful week.  I’m having to reset on my training for my fall runs, so all the miles have been slow and easy.  

This weekend I had a pretty cool running experience.  I needed to feel that coming off of my last debacle of a run.  But let’s not rehash those 3 letter right now.  Let’s move along, yes?!Today I’m re-capping the 2015 Phoenix Pride run… and as an extra bonus, I’ll also be giving you some insights and feelings on being an official race pacer.  So, you get a 2 for 1 today on reviews!  #jackpot.  HOWEVER, it might get a little long winded #oxymoron

I DNF’d the 2015 Crown King Scramble

No, unfortunately, I am not kidding Howard… and yes, it’s April 1st, but NO, not an April Fools… I did DNF.

Oh man, the three letters I thought I’d never string together.  Well, if I thought writing the post recap of the Phoenix Marathon was excruciating, this one is turning out to be even worse.  Usually, I’ll have some direction on my posts, but I’m still in a state of shock over what happened at the 2015 Crown King Scramble 50k.  So, forgive me if I start to spew off total nonsense about how it sucks and how it’s been a tough pill to swallow looking at those 3 letters by my name on the results sheet.

I started with 1 and now I have over 2


…over 2 thousand that is.  That’s the number of followers I have on IG.  That’s just crazy to me.  I mean, I know I don’t have the tens of thousands of followers like other people I follow.  But in less than a year, I’ve somehow gained a little following that enjoys stomachs my posts about crazy 2 handed gang signs, slow jogging, mis-matched socks, eclectic shirts, and family life.  If I stopped down to actually count how many of my followers I actually know, it would probably be less than 2%.
