Welcome! My name is Ryan and I’m a regular guy that loves to run, particularly on the trails in and around Salt Lake City, UT. For my day job, I work in Product Marketing for a global software security company. I am not a professional athlete. My passion and love of running started back in 2009 when I was 80+ pounds overweight and decided I wanted to run a half marathon. Fast forward 6 years and I’ve run many half marathons and a few 50k, 50 mile, and 100k ultras. My passions are trail running, ultras, and running gear (watches, packs, and shoes primarily).
This blog is a vehicle for me to share my love of running with anyone and everyone. Expect my thoughts and opinions on running topics and please feel free to share your thoughts and opinions with me through comments and/or social media.
I am currently an Ambassador for Orange Mud, which makes fantastic hydration packs and other running accessories and Headsweats. I love promoting brands that I am passionate about to friends and strangers alike, and I use every product I promote.
