Why do we run?

Posted in Running with tags , , , , , , , , on January 26, 2016 by theroadandthedamned

For me it started as a way to aid in my weight loss (I dropped 120 pounds in a year all naturally and safely I might add) then it evolved. I run for time…but not in the way most do. I don’t run to be fast or for medals as I will never be fast and I have placed a few times and that is cool. When I say I run for time I mean I run for that time to myself to challenge myself, to take in the beauty of nature. Today I ran in a very wet muddy trail and until today I’ve never really gotten wet running. Mostly because I’ve just never ran trails when it was really wet. Well once I knew I had my traction thanks to my trusty Hoka’s I was bounding through muddy, sludgy beautiful trails like a kid puddle jumping. Not a care in the world. I wasn’t worried about ruining my shoes or getting my car muddy. I was living

in the moment with a big damn smile on my face. That’s why I run.

Ran my first race of the year. It was a 5K for cancer awareness. Very small turnout met some great new local runners. Also finished 3rd in my age group as well as winning the award for best beard.12510250_10153998667177573_3602343979597369832_n7382_10153998667297573_1202267657750908431_n

Kicking 2016 off right

Posted in Running with tags , , , , , on January 5, 2016 by theroadandthedamned

So far in this very new year I’ve logged a little over 19 miles all on singletrac trails and have a charity 5K this weekend. I feel I am off to a good start. Was gonna sign up for a half marathon next week…but decided to take that money and buy an annual parking pass for our state parks where I will run much farther than 13.1 and will lead to a lot more medals in the long run.

So I was thinking…

So I’ve been thinking about the amazing double standards that are placed on women. Traditionally speaking a “sexy or desirable” woman will put on a ton of makeup or a something we are told is sexy like the garment below. Where as we as men are supposed to just sat and there in our boxer briefs and take it all in like masters of the universe… What a bunch of shit. Who came up with this thought process and what guy really feels this way? Personally what I find attractive is a woman comfortable I. Her own skin, one who looks just as good in sweats as she does “dressed up”. Guys have you ever worn something ridiculous or Lacy for your woman probably not ( and if you had most wouldn’t admit it lest your manhood be threatened). Just my thought but to me sexy, beautiful and desirable have nothing to do with the clothes you wear, how you wear your skin is far more important.1935847_10208492568500589_1049292708117492900_n

So what are my fellow runners favorite socks to run in and why? I have been using Feetures but just ordered some Bombas. Also what type of climate/terrain are you running in? http://refer.bombas.com/x/4vvyvI

Running for a cure

Posted in Running with tags , , , , on December 15, 2015 by theroadandthedamned

I have a 5K beard run next month that I am raising money for, it is for cancer research.  I do all the cancer runs in honor of my stepfather one of the strongest men I’ve ever known. I have raised almost my whole goal. It is always nice to see strangers come together for a worthy cause. If you are interested in donating let me know thank you. Here is a link to donate if you wish… http://www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=1151325&lis=0&kntae1151325=807025D6D53C47D68782EC7D8D2A153A&supid=419460639
