"A couple of months ago I started a 'living' blog post in which I chronicled what I believe to be misdeeds by my former brother-in-law toward my sister Heather, her children, and my family. Approximately 48 hours ago, I received a 'cease-and-desist' letter from his lawyer, threatening to sue on his behalf if I didn't remove the post, despite my assertion that every one of my statements was, or could be, proven in a court of law. Well, as you can see, the post has been deleted to avoid any further legal action. In my opinion, only a coward would pay someone else to fight his own battles. Despite this, I feel that some justice was served in this short time, and I am content with the belief that this man's lies will lead to his eventual undoing without my help. What baffles me is that despite the despicable skeletons this man hides in his closet, he continues to bad-mouth those who have the key to the door."
Thanks to everyone for your support in this matter, and thanks for making this the most popular post on TFC!

Postscript: After a closer look at this first set, we were pretty sure that Carson didn't take them (One-handed? Come on.) Those were found to be the work of unGuy (age 5). I would have guessed the same on the second shoot if I hadn't witnessed it with me own eyes!

|Two-mile training runs are the pits!|
As I scan through the 2012 schedules, I realize what I missed most about the races was the camaraderie and competition, and honestly, being able help others along the way. In the meantime, I'm pining away as the mileage creeps forward. Maybe I'll be eating your dust on the trails next spring.

In a previous life I was a synthpop artist. Back in 2003 I was signed to a small independent label out of Utah, released a single, XRV, in 2004 and then a self-titled album in 2005. During the recording process, I agonized over every detail, and the finished product never really mirrored the image I carried in my head. Years went by before I could even listen to the album. But lately that dissatisfaction has mellowed. Sure, that mental red pen still clicks to life whenever one of those tunes comes up on my iPod. But these days I find myself enjoying the works for what they are - simple musical snapshots in time.
Well, the time has come to hang this one on the wall and move on. You can download the entire album, as well as some covers, remixes, and unreleased items here.
Download. Enjoy. Share.

My goals for the year are to stay healthy, enjoy my family and take in the scenery. I hope your 2009 is a prosperous one, too.

I started out in the back of the pack and picked my way through about 200 competitors, taking numerous pictures and dispensing S-Caps and Advil to struggling runners along the way.
Avoiding those abandoned mines for a change
I arrived at the first aid station in 72nd place and finished 29th out of 244, and it may have been my most well-executed and uneventful race yet.
First brutal climb about three miles in.
Not me, but nice vest, dude!
That scintillating climb to Mosquito Pass.Ahh, pavement. Soft, forgiving pavement.
