“Unfiltered, Unsupported, Unfinished”

A $20 a night campground brings a certain level of charm… like people loudly coming and going at all hours of the night… a random 5am guitar serenade in 29° weather and conversations with a Harley driving New Yorker in the community showers… (for the record… Ed from NY is a good dude). Per usual, Matty Fierce and I made the long 5.5hrs drive up … Continue reading “Unfiltered, Unsupported, Unfinished”

“Family”

The sun was setting over Hickory Heights as we started picking teams. “I’ll take Art.” We’d strung together 2 goals and placed them on opposite ends of the driveway. We’d carefully and colorfully lined off the free throw line and the 3 point perimeter. “Aight cool… I’ll take… Nathan.” The flood lights flipped on.

Often when I start focusing more on numbers, time or a long race… I experience a little burn out and that initial inspiration starts to dwindle. Truthfully, not running as much … Continue reading Cyclic

You Can Always Find Me Where The Skies Are Blue

A certain intimacy lies in grand adventures and travel. There’s just something that bonds people when seeing beautiful places or doing hard shit together. Perhaps it’s the collective feeling of awe and amazement when staring out into the High Country in Colorado from 14,000ft. Or that feeling of smallness when gazing upon something as majestic as the Tetons… Or that feeling of a cold beer … Continue reading You Can Always Find Me Where The Skies Are Blue

Locked Up

Another headline stating a repeat felon was released from jail, went straight back to their criminal behavior and ended up back in jail. These types of headlines have become far too common. No one is surprised. Most people just read the article title, shake their head and continue scrolling without given it a second thought. “Well, they’re just bad people and criminals. It’s who they … Continue reading Locked Up
