J-Lyn Runs: A Musical. Part 1

so I'm not mentally there on a lot of my runs. My mind is... elsewhere. Then I make a funny video reference that no one else gets because they don't waste obscene amounts of time watching funny viral videos.
 well today, get prepared. you are about to be treated to part 1 of my video references.

aw, yeah!

 "When I wake up in the morning and the alarm gives out a warning..."

Then to check the weather, to see if it's "friggin' cold, I shouldn't be half nude"

If it's cold, I need to put my tight pants on.

 But if it's hot, well, do I dare wear short shorts?

And really, who can think of putting on or taking off socks without thinking of business time?

 Whenever I end up running on the road, I think of rollerblades. And all I want for Christmas is my rollerblades "Just give them to me!"

 If I sprint ahead on some downhill and have to wait for the others, well "no one was looking... I was all by myself."

As far as getting stuck in the backcountry without any food to eat, the back-up plan has already been set. (Except Randy is named Jacob.)

 Train crossing? Such a dumb way to die.

Dude, don't spit. That's so.... loserly. Cake?! (this one is music to my ears, but not musical in nature)

Animal sighting are always exciting.

 And for running uphill, well, it's the climb. (watch this one. it's my favorite.)

Speaking of Miley... group runs are a party.

 Ugh, and I hate when I hit a spot of hot air on a run that totally throws me off. Makes me think of hot pockets.  (not musical. bite me.)

as far as taking a shower after a run, well...

 last but not least... when someone falls down and gets hurt, or they get lost, or they have a bad day.... I just want to shout "rub some bacon on it!"

No wonder I'm socially awkward.

    1. it's only part 1... you are probably the only person who reads this that knows each video without needing to re-watch it. we're a match made in heaven.

  2. Great stuff! The bad lip reading of Twilight has to be one of my all-time faves.

that WEIGHTY issue

It's been said to us climbers that what we do is dangerous, and irresponsible. How could we risk our lives like this? And distance trail running, if it compromises our health why do it? How dare we take that time away from our families? And yet, to even make mention about a different lifestyle, one of weight, obesity, and all of the very dangerous and risky components it involves is socially disgraceful, insensitive, and cruel. I bring this up only to show how much weight, in general, is not "ok" to talk about. It's a sensitive subject, even, no, especially, for those of us already at a healthy weight who use our bodies to their fullest daily...

Now, this blog is about running, ain't it? Yep. So while there's a lot of "weight" we could cover in this "weighty" area, we'll just go over one. Running.
Running and weight are intertwined. I'd like to say that this post is primarily for the ladies, because we typically store more weight t…

my children in wilderness; my partners in adventure

kids. it's one subject that everyone seems to avoid in the back-country. I daresay it's even more controversial than bolts/chopping bolts, the purpose of 200 mile slogs, or the benefits/costs of lake powell.

why is it so unpopular? most of us have kids, and we all were kids once. still, most outdoor peeps love a crag dog and will "oooh" and "aah" over an obnoxious pup getting tangled in their gear, but will groan when they see a few kids at a climbing crag. even in utah, other peoples children are generally viewed as distasteful as the little bags of dog poop the poop fairy forgot to come back and pick up off of the trail.

fortunately, kids are nearly as common.

"kid krushers"
"mini me's"
"the backcountry parent"
"badass babes"
"free range parenting"
"little training partners"

the titles we use are amusing and endless...

I have two kids. I'm a single mom. I l…

Millwood 100 M "race" report

The most difficult “race reports” to write are the ones that are the most meaningful. With Millwood 100, it is both meaningful and not a real race, so it is twice as hard to capture the experience as words on paper. But I shall try.
First off, what is the Millwood 100 Mile? Millwood is (and yet another) Jared Campbell line in the Wasatch. (More and more my life is becoming a WWJD event… except more of WWJDS—What Would Jared Do Slower.) Millwood highlights the entirety of the Wasatch—along it’s 100 mile route it takes you through several 10,000-11,000+ summits, ridges, lower/over-populated flat trails, beaver ponds, exposed foothills, places where trails no longer exists or bushwacks where the never were trails, scrambles, rarely visited forks and passes, etc. The bad, good, and incredible aspects of the wasatch are all highlighted in Millwood. The vertical gain is somewhere between 40-45,000 ft of ascent… with the same amount of descent. Prior to my Millwood finish there were 3 Millwoo…
