Sylamore 25K/50K.

Another year. I can’t believe it.

It’s hard to say where I would be if I had not found these people or this race but I believe that I would be in a very different spot. The Sylamore 50k and the people that are part of it are very special to me.

For five years in a row this race has meant something different each year but it always means gratitude and appreciation for everything that I have been through and all of the people who have helped me get through it.

As always, I don’t travel far without recording equipment and I am always quick to cram a microphone in anyone’s face who is willing to tolerate it. I am fortunate that the people around me appreciate the LHRL® Podcast and are willing to subject themselves to the discomfort of putting on a headset while the cameras and equipment record.

We have a great thing going at Lift Heavy Run Long. Getting to know everyone who enhances the community and watching people accomplish their first race distances and all of the emotions that come with that is really a gift that I cherish deeply. So pardon me, if I sound a bit sappy but Sylamore is more than just a run for me and all of you are more than just random runners.

Thank you all for making this so much fun.

if you would like to share your experience at Sylamore, we would love to hear about it. Send me your story and a picture to and I will get it published on the site.

Peace, Love and all things Beef related,
