Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow" !! #runCIM #road2CIM #tampa #runnerscommunity #runhappy #goldcountryrunning #goldcountryrunandsport #goldenrunners #folsom #veganrunner #grassvalleyca

Sunday will be three weeks since I’ve ran a step. Trying to fix my Achilles for good. On one hand, I’m going absolutely nuts. On the other hand... #rehabsucks #onemoreweek

The struggle is real.. Everything is healed up except my Achilles\ankle-type area. Not sure what is going on down there. But it sucks. #wanttorun
Time: Just after 2 am. Place: Bush's Pasture Park, in Salem, Oregon. I had been in motion for 14 hrs. I was leaning on the aid station table, staring at the lap sheet. Or at least pretending to. I was really just trying to avoid going around the loop anymore. 50 miles is good enough, I was beginning to tell myself, already starting the "It's ok to quit" rationalization. Everything hurt, and I had long since lost my "100 mile" pace. Why keep going? There is a nice comfy bed over there in a nice comfy tent with my nice beautiful wife. I could just crawl in there, try to ignore the sweat stench, and go to sleep for a few days. Thankfully, my wife had other ideas... I wrote a race recap for #angryowlultramarathon on runnercraig.com Let me know what you think!
Happy to have been selected as a Heart Zones Ambassador! Still checking out this new Blink 3.0. So far, it’s pretty amazing! It flashes different colors to tell you when you have crossed your specific thresholds into different training heart rate zones, and the app has some killer analytics for your workouts as well. It really helped me stay at my easy pace for the first 8 hours of my last Ultra. I’ll put a discount code on my website for you! Runnercraig.com and click on the Ambassador logo. I’ll write up a full review when I am completely fluent in Blink.. πŸ˜€
Love the hills and they will love you back or not lol but at least they make you stronger !! Road to CIM #goldcountryrunning #goldcountryrunandsport #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #runnersworld #runcalifornia #sacramentorunning #CIM #sanfrancisco #hills #roadtocim #runhappy #cancer

Mesh 3.5’s? Yes, please. I absolutely love every new model that @altrarunning has put out this year. And that is saying something. Usually shoe companies let me down by destroying our shoes slowly but surely, model by model. Not so with Altra.. Loved the 3.0’s, and I LOVE these 3.5’s- whether they be knit or mesh. Check β€˜em out.
3rd overall! 70 miles covered, although the mat only gave me 66. I’d like to say it was fun, and it was at times. But mostly it just hurt. A lot. I enjoyed the challenge, and love that my lovely bride came to crew for me. She took such great care of me! Awesome experience. Will definitely do it again! #angryowlultramarathon
100k on my watch, probably 58 miles at the mat. I’m smoked. Been walking for a while. Going to try to grind out another 10k, but it’s getting hard to even walk. #forwardisapace #deathmarch #everythinghurts #angryowlultramarathon

Badwater 4.2.. 104 outside. Took an hour walk, trying to get used to the heat. Working through taper aches and pains. New Paradigm 4’s are amazeballs. #angryowlultramarathon
When cancer wants to take everything away for you, you must fight !! Many times I took for granted my ability to run fast to run without training because I was gifted with β€œspeed β€œ , but when my IPF took everything away from me I learned that God give us gifts to use them for a good reason. Now after long time I’m running again .the way to the top it will be long and hard but I will fight the good fight. #godfirst #goldcountryrunning #goldcountryrunandsport #fighting #runnersworld #runnerscommunity #runhappy #CIM #hesback #folsom #tamparunner #nevergiveup
But, the Escalante 1.5 is absolutely brilliant as well. Love you @altrarunning ...
I just thought the new Escalante was the sexiest shoe on earth. Then the Paradigm 4 arrived.. @altrarunning has this stuff down. So comfy, I can’t even describe how they feel. Like a giant marshmallow tenderly hugging your feet, while John Mayer gently sings in your ear? I think I am actually in love with a shoe.
Chuck and Oz.. Wore each other out while Lauren tortured me\ made me feel good again. @movementshiftpt
So, I know #badwater135 is starting tomorrow, and it will be about 150 degrees for those poor souls running across Death Valley, so I really have no room to whine. But every time I look at Saturday’s forecast, I pucker up a little more. The number just keeps going up, and my 24 hr race starts at noon. It said 92 yesterday! I live in Sacramento, which is like living on the sun, but come on.. I avoid running in this stuff. 🀣 Guess we will take it easy until the sun goes down! I was counting on it being nice and cool back β€œhome”.. #toolateforheattraining #angryowlultramarathon #iceinmyshorts #deathmarch
4 more days until we leave for #angryowlultramarathon Easy taper cruise.. getting squishy and healthy.

Fun times, till I crashed and burned, it was bad, I screamed as I was tripping over a root, already going pretty fast on a steep downhill, about mile 9.8. It was like Superman but I was flying on the dirt and rocks. Quick scan no loose or missing teeth, no broken bones. I was all alone, getting cocky cause I was feeling good. Note DO NOT GET COCKY 😬😬😬 Took the next 9.8 a little slower, I was hurting, but hell I look pretty bad ass covered in dirt. Had I not of crashed and burned, I think I’d of been under 4 hours, I was 4:12:20, so I was happy cause I wanted under 4:30. The hills were tough, really tough, but already scanning for my next 30k trail run. @gold_country_run_and_sport @runsra_cim @inspiringwomenrunners @ihavearunnersbody @eldoradohills @running.inspire @runnersgonewild @runners_of_insta @stylemagedcf @juliarunstheworld @cu004289 @on_running @aftershokz @tifosioptics #runnerchick #gettingfaster #goldcountryrunning #lotuspark #eldoradohills #runnersofinstagram #runningbesties #trailrunner #trailrunning #runningsquad #runforlife #addictedtorunning #eldoradohillsphotographer #folsomrunner #folsomphotographer #sacramentophotographer #placervillephotographer #caliphotographer #trails #shokzsquad #cloudventure
