Dear Reader:

I have been thinking, lately, about the the direction of Historically this site has been an informational site for running activities in and around San Juan Island mixed with some technical information. I have also thrown in stuff about my own running.

Working on this website has been fun. Maybe even fulfilling. A little fulfilling. Not a whole bunch. My current issue is that the site seems to be stuffy, stale and dry. Like the stuff one reads to help them fall asleep. This is not how I want to write. Besides, I am a funny guy and I want to throw humor into my work. The type of humor that makes one giggle or even blow beer out of noses.

So here is what I am going to do. I’m changing the direction of the present site to a more funny and insightful one. I want writing for this site to be fun for me and produce some inspiration to the reader to go out and run.

For the more technical aspects about running I am going to use Here you will find shoe reviews, race updates and interviews. Stuff like that.

Run Happy Run Hard will be more about my running and how I use running to help me get through this journey called life. It will make for some interesting reading. Really.
