Things I Didn’t Blog, is is a new post series for me (Brent) to share things I’ve nearly forgot about, and definitely didn’t blog.

As many of you know, this year, on May 17th, we celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary.… Read the rest

Let’s talk about momentum

It’s all about getting started, all you need is a push.

The goal is to harness movement and let it carry you through the obstacles that life invariably provides. What is hard is when you’ve been sitting still for too long.… Read the rest

Running: Conflicted Passion

I’ve been running off and on now for years. My earliest memories are from Jr. High, running track and field in the Spring and cross-country in the Fall. I loved running, I just loved it. It wasn’t that I was a driven, competitive athlete, but that I just could go for miles, stuck in my own head.… Read the rest

Dubai

Part 2 of my adventure to Nepal with Approach Intl.

We got into Dubai in the late evening. The flight was long, but not too bad. We both got good naps and felt pretty good upon arrival. Andy booked us a hotel just off the airport for our layover.… Read the rest

The Meetup

Part 1 of many about my adventure to Nepal with Approach Intl.

Andy was flying in from Bozeman, and I was joining him in Seattle. It was a four hour drive up from The Dalles, so I was able to get in a bit of last minute time with my family before leaving them for two weeks.Read the rest

How the Half Became Full

Is was very soon after our first half-marathon (the Missoula) that thoughts crept in about running a full marathon. We trained for some more races, 10Ks and half-marathons, mostly run together. I think it was during our training and completion of the Billings Governors Cup half that a destination was set and training schedule established.… Read the rest

So you wanna run a half-marathon do ya?

Jess recently posted about when she started becoming the marathoner we have before us today and I thought it’d be a good time to share my thoughts on the whole thang. So as she stated, just over 8 years ago, Jess’s interest in running was piqued by a family member.… Read the rest

Smaller bites

I’m one to dream… BIG, sometimes too big. This tends to pervade most of my life. Most of the time, this is a good thing. At work, I tend to make things better because of dreaming big, but dreaming big has stalled me in my personal projects.… Read the rest

Rising Early

I recently made the switch at work to a 4-10 schedule which means I now wake up (too) early, but I get Monday’s off. A while back, we had one of our favorite families over for a couple days and I decided to make the most of the early morning on my day off.… Read the rest
