My recap from Wasatch 100. What a journey!Read More
Excited to finish up a little icon for Beehive Knife & Tool.Read More
Oh man! I haven't posted Daily Design Work, like, ever on my new site! Well, I've got logos on the docket… and I love it! The above image is some recent work I've been mashing together. The image above isn't really for a bar called RED, nor is this icon being used anywhere. This is merely something I enjoyed putting together for fun. However, I do have some freelance design projects lined up over the next few weeks that I couldn't be more excited about.
The past few months of design work have been incredibly productive; I've assisted with some complete rebranding solutions for Causwell that included a full soft good and accessories overhaul to their entire line. I'm really excited to share that with everyone soon. Otherwise, I redesigned the entire Surface Skis 15/16 line (both hard goods, and soft goods - post SIA show) and I've been posting as much as possible on Merit Endurance - a rather fun and relaxing side project about mountain running, culture, photography and design.
I'll be sure to post up more design-related work in the near future.
Have a good weekend!
4/6/2015 – BST + Oly 1st Creek
1:27 – 2500' – 8miles
Easy for 1hr. Hard for the remainder.
4/7/2015 – Olympus (summit)
1:57 – 4200' – 6.25miles
Easy effort throughout. Chilly and windy day!
3/30/2015 – Mon
Olympus Saddle + BST 1st Climb
(1:57 – 4200' – 6.5miles)
Ahh. Too nice of a day to just hit anything without any major relief, so a late morning Olympus it was. It was a fairly relaxed effort with no redlining. Pleased to have reached the saddle under the 60min mark. I'm quite excited that the upper portion of this trail is becoming more dry by the day. I really like that mountain in the summer.
Mon – Blister Hill + BST (1:31 – 2700' – 7.5miles)
I've been waking up a 5:30am for the past month now, however, I've not been taking advantage of setting out for a run at first light. I normally brew some coffee in the french press and head to the computer to tackle emails and do some bits of design work for an hour or two, but this morning I was highly motivated to run. So I left the house at the first inkling of light and went straight towards Olympus.
About a year ago I was standing on my front porch, thinking how amazing it would be to run every peak and pass that I could see from where I stood. A point-to-point trail run that requires a car shuttle. I mapped it out. Titled it "The View". I mentioned this route to Brody last weekend and his interest spiked, he had to join. We made some last minute edits to the route. The new trick was not to use any trail twice.Read More
Fall season is definitely my favorite time to be in the Wasatch mountains. The colors are unbelievable and the trails are mostly in their prime. Recovery from The Bear has gone much better than I anticipated.Read More

My last few runs going into the Bear 100 left me feeling far too tired. I had complete uncertainty and a lot of doubt going into it. Training runs were plagued with legs that felt like lead and I was becoming winded on even the smallest climbs. I was certain that I pushed my body too hard over the weeks leading up. Besides, I had no pacer and no crew. This was going to be a grand personal experience into my first major distance outing.Read More
