Hostess 100 Miler In the News and Other Randomly Awesome Things

So about a week and a half ago I ate some Twinkies and donuts......and ran 100 miles in Salt Lake. It was a seriously different experience running 100 miles on pavement versus on trails. When we got home we saw this cool picture on our driveway and immediately knew it was from our awesome friend Cherie Santiago. This made me smile.

The day before the run this story ran on KSL News by Arianne Brown. I did not seek out any news coverage but I thought her story turned out great. 

A few days ago I went outside to check out the "honey moon": the honey-colored full moon that won't happen again until 2098. To me the moon looked remarkably un-honey-like, but still beautiful nonetheless. I caught this picture:

My son Jackson is an amazing piano player. He's been taking lessons for many years and loves playing songs from Billy Joel. We surprised him with an early once-in-a-lifetime birthday present and took him to a Billy Joel concert in Las Vegas.

The concert was beyond amazing. 

After the show Jackson smiled and said this was the best day of his life. 

If you haven't seen it yet, watch this  recent visit on Jimmy Fallon. I guarantee it will be the coolest thing you see today. It already has 10 million views.

And finally a view from a recent run on the Gould's Rim trail.

Give me a few days to digest everything from the Bryce 100 over the weekend. There are some amazing stories to be told.


  1. I have had a seriously rough couple of days and that video clip just put the biggest smile on my face. You rock!

  2. I loved that clip! Thanks for sharing :-)

  3. Rad that you took your son to that concert!
