This is my blog. A knob log. Knob blog has been around since 2006. It used to be mostly about running, then it was dead, then some lame technobabble stuff, and now we’ll see where it goes.
Start at the beginning with the first post, about God and this blog, or read the latest posts below.

Houston Half-Marathon 2023 Race Report February 11, 2023 - I used to be excited to write about my running, now I force out a few paragraphs a couple of weeks after the fact. Maybe it means this blog has run its course? Hmm, something to consider. But for now, the little-awaited Houston Half-Marathon 2023 race report! TLDR; I exceeded my expectations, finishing in 1:32:54. […]
Pumpkin Pie 10K Race Report December 16, 2022 - I ran the Pumpkin Pie 10K race in Denver on November 19, 2022. My official finishing time was 45:03, for an average pace of 7:15 per mile, good for 34th place overall and 2nd in my age group. Also, a dog bit me in the ass. As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I […]
Summer/Fall 2022 Running Update December 6, 2022 - After my last post about my Barr Lake 15K race six months ago, I was feeling optimistic about my running for the first time in a long time. So optimistic, in fact, that I thought I was very close to achieving my post-50 year-old sub-20 5k goal. I signed up for a fast 5K down […]
Barr Lake 15K Race Report May 24, 2022 - With less than 12 hours of notice or forethought, I decided to run the Barr Lake 15K. I came across the race listing looking for 5K races later this summer, and initially the half-marathon portion of the event caught my eye. I’m familiar with Barr Lake State Park from birding excursions with Jessica, and I […]
Super Bowl 5K Race Report February 11, 2022 - As I’ve mentioned many times on this blog and on my Josheli Running video channel, I’ve had a goal for about two years now to run a 5K in under 20 minutes as a 50 year old. This Sunday, at the Super Bowl 5K in Denver, I came a little bit closer to achieving the […]

In Episode 7: Winter Running and My Fastest 5K in 13 Years, we take a look at my week of running in a bit of snowy and icy conditions, I have a little motivation dip in the middle, and finally end the […]
Project JoRViP: Josheli Running Video Producer February 2, 2022 - I produce videos for the Josheli Running YouTube channel. Producing videos is tedious and time-consuming. It’d be great if I could automate, as much as possible, the production of those videos. This project, the Josheli Running Video Producer, will be an attempt to do just that. The idea is that I’ll build something in fits […]
My previous 15 months of running in my quest to run a sub-20 minute 5k at 50 years old January 31, 2022 - How about that title?! So I realized after posting my last video that it was my first one since August of 2020. I didn’t realize it had been that long. My running blog is similarly stale. So maybe more of an update is due here. In Fall of 2020 I was training with a very […]
Episode 6: Josheli Running Returns January 30, 2022 - And what do you know, no sooner than I had written the last blog post on writing and running, I was inspired to create a new video. A lot of that inspiration is due to The Welsh Runner. I’ve been watching his videos lately, and they’ve sparked a little fire in me. Running is going […]
