Howlett Family Travels and Adventures

Dealing with Dejection

Do you ever feel left out or neglected? Do you feel like the harder you work the more you want something, but when it doesn't come then your dejected and frustrated? Do you feel that sometimes the world withholds what you feel you deserve? I think that we have all...

A Bay Area Blitz

This past weekend we had the opportunity to head to the Bay Area for some fun in a little warmer weather. Leslie raced the TNF Endurance Challenge Championship 50 mile race (more on that in a bit). They also had a team element to it so Altra had 9 athletes competing...

East Coast Road Trippin'

What better way to spend 27 days of homelessness than to do it on the road! We are inbetween homes for nearly a month and were already planning a road trip so it "kinda" worked out. The stress of packing our entire home before vacation was not ideal, but living on the...

A Broken Bow

Amidst this great journey in the wilderness known as mortality we each must face our growing moments and moments of trial. This past week was one such blow to our family. Everyone's health is okay and yes, there are many more that have to deal with much bigger trials...

Great Basin National Park

One of the lesser known National Parks in the United States is Great Basin National Park. It sits out of the way in central eastern Nevada near the Utah border. It is actually the nearest National Park to Salt Lake, but certainly the least visited. It doesn't have the...

Buffalo Run Course Record

I spend every day with my lovely wife, Leslie Howlett, but am still amazed by what she can do. Do I often have high expectations of her and does that cloud my excitement? Yes, a little, but I am still impressed every time I see her push herself to new limits and...

Share The Gift This Christmas

Every year it seems that Christmas sneaks up on us more and more. It also seems to be much more commercialized every year. Thanksgiving is almost an afterthought to the huge sales that are taking place over the weekend and now even on Thanksgiving day. We seem to...

Getting our Children Outdoors

One of the great things that we could do with her children is to get them into the outdoors. Our children really love to be outside, and it is great for us as parents to take them there. If we allow them to be cooped up inside with devices all of the time they will...

Crewing Les at Run Rabbit Run

I am so proud of my wife. She has done some great things over the past couple of years as she has entrenched herself into this sport of ultra running. She has placed high at both Lake Sonoma 50 and Speedgoat 50k as well as crushing her first ever 100 mile race with a...

Speedgoat and Twin Peaks

With summer in full swing and the snow mostly melted off of the highest peaks in the state it is beyond time to be moving from Southern Utah adventures to full on mountain ascents and peaks to bag. This also means that late summer and fall ultra season is on to full...

Spending time with the kids

Finally stepping away from work for a little. It has been a very challenging thing to do as of late. I wish I had the ability to do it a little more, but it is great to be with my kids and hear their cute little thoughts. Tonight mamma needed to study for a test and I...

16 Miles!

Almost two years ago I started a journey to get fit and lose some unwanted poundage. That was then. Now I am on a journey to be adventurous! My gorgeous wife has put up with me being out of shape and unmotivated for over 6 years. I turned that corner and now am...
