I got the flu 3 days before. The weather was hot as hell. I became dangerously ill during the race. Things went to complete $hit. But even though part of my body quit on me, my mind did not. I harnessed the power of my mind, and used my half a year and 1,400 miles… Continue reading My First 50 Mile Ultramarathon
This is it! If all goes as planned, one week from now my friend Christy and I will have run 50 miles (in a row). I don’t think I have ever felt more prepared for anything in my entire life. According to my RunKeepeer, I’ve put in more than 1,400 miles on the pavement since I made… Continue reading Coming Soon: 50 miles
This has been one the most emotional weeks in our household in a very long time. I’ll get right down to it. Scott has been promoted from the Head Football Coach/Campus Athletic Coordinator at Steele High School to the Schertz Cibolo Universal City School District’s Athletic Director, responsible for athletics, health & physical education. While… Continue reading A New Chapter for Scott
Wow. That’s the kind of race you try to survive. 5 days and I finally feel fully recovered from one of the most difficult, yet incredible runs of my life thus far – one that I am certain will remain in this elite category of races for the rest of my days: The Tejas Trails… Continue reading My Second Ultramarathon
What a year! 14-2. We were blessed to have the opportunity to play sixteen games this season – something that out of thousands of teams, only a handful get to do each year. We traveled to Dallas to play in the famous Cowboys Stadium. Our only two losses this season were to the Texas High… Continue reading I Love Our Knights

I wrote this last year, but it still stands true, and perhaps even more so this year, as each season my love of Knight Football grows more and more… so I’m posting it again with a few tweaks. To the Steele Knight Football Team: I just want to take a few moments to share some… Continue reading Letter to the Knights and Fans
What an awesome weekend! The Knights won yet another Regional title and I survived yet another marathon! I’m going go ahead to put this marathon in the ‘Bad@$$ Category’ on my resume. Seriously, it was crazy. Sadly, I have hardly any race pics because my phone was triple zip-locked in my hydration vest due to the… Continue reading 2016 San Antonio Marathon
Behind most games, there’s a story of some sort. This week it was about a match-up between two incredible teams: The Steele Knights (12-1) and the Churchill Chargers (11-2). Steele, entered the State Quarterfinal game for the 7th straight year in a row, while Churchill made it’s first appearance in the fourth round of playoffs in two decades. And not only… Continue reading Knights Heading to State Semi Final Game!
Tonight Steele played the Weslaco East Wildcats at Buccaneer Stadium in Corpus Christi. It was quite a long day – the kids and I left the house at 9:33 am and arrived back home a little past 11 pm! But the big round trip to the city by the sea was worth it as the Knights shut out… Continue reading Knights Advance to State Quarterfinals
