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%.

Would I ever do it again? The 2015 Phoenix Marathon recap


Well, sort of a race recap.  Aloha Friday gangeez!  Can you believe its already mid March?!  Which for me means March Madness and coming to work using fake apps… pretending like I’m being productive while secretly watching not 1, not 2, but 3 monitors with live games!  It’s a blog… you’re supposed to be transparent and honest.  So if any co-workers read this little old post, come by and I’ll tell you my secrets! Haha! No!

What’s Your Excuse Now, Wednesday…


Happy Hump Day Gangeez!  Hope this post finds you in good health and spirits on this wednesday.  

I know, I know… another post and still no Phoenix Marathon recap?  What?!  That’s not what you were thinking of?!  You forgot about it already?! Ha…maybe I should just shelve it?

A Welcomed Distraction…and Kimmy Gibbler, Whaaaaa?


I can’t lie, I’m struggling with writing my Phoenix Marathon recap.  All the professional bloggers in the interwebs who participated in #itsGoingDownAtPHX are putting their race-recaps together and letting everyone know that without a doubt #itWentDownInPHX.  I just can’t get my head wrapped around how to even begin to put “pen to paper” and capture all the sights, all the sounds, all the emotions, all the feelings of what went on this past weekend.  I start and stop…and start up again.  It will get done, I promise.  I just need a mental break.  

Let’s get this over with!


Oh man, it’s Aloha Friday gangeez.  And it’s one day closer to saying Aloha to the Phoenix Marathon.  Oh how quickly this race went from my “A race” to just a run.  The goal is just to finish and get dat bling! 

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted and boy how things haven’t gone the way I wanted to.  I had this cool strategy that I’d be able to parlay my ultramarathon training into my marathon training and PR from last years race.  Well, that went out the window after only logging 6 runs…yes 6 runs since Cold Water Rumble, a busted hip, a jacked knee, and 1 of 2 “book it down” sick spells of the year.
