Week 3! – Coach Malm

Totally blanked on recapping week 3! Mach didn’t harass me about it, and I didn’t remember it. Actually my buddy Adam gets the gold medal for nudging me to keep it real and recap the week! Thanks, AA.😆 So last week was another okay week! I capped it right at 50 and just over 5k …

Week 2 – “Make War”

Mellow Mushroom, Dragon Tattoos, & a Very Epic 26.2 Finish

It was all about my intense love for the mountains and friends and life and what have you..... ......and then somehow it was completely deleted right before my eyes. Grrr. I wanted to punch someone in the face! For real. …
