The Best Five Miles Ever

03.18.2013 | 5:27 am

A Note from Fatty: A big thanks to those of you who have bought copies of Susan’s book, The Forgotten Gift. And an even bigger thanks to those of you who have left a review of the book. I’ve been really happy to see that the appeal of the book goes way beyond the teenager market I had originally talked about — adults are loving it too. 

If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, please do. You can find it available in paperback, as well as in Kindle and Nook formats.

I’m not even going to try to disguise this post. Plain and simple, this one’s all about how proud I am of my 17-year-old son, Brice. Brice is a gifted kid. Extraordinarily smart (he was the top student in his gifted student class back in sixth grade). A great sense of humor. Good at pretty much everything he tries.

He also battles severe depression, which would have been bad enough on its own, but pretty much wiped him out for a few years as his mom’s cancer got really bad and then took her life.

I don’t want to go into the bad times he’s had, though. Not in this post. What I want to do is write about a few awesome things that have happened lately.


The University of Utah has a great program, called TeenScope, Brice participated in. And it did amazing things for him — in fact, I’d say it’s no exaggeration to say that the program saved his life.

It’s also the program my insurance company, Cigna, actively battled me on covering. While they eventually paid for part of it, several thousand dollars are now my responsibility — it’s my hope that royalties from Susan’s book will help meet that.

Following that program, Brice started coming back to us — I don’t even know how to describe it better than that. He even started going back to regular school, and is now back in school full time.

And that’s not all.

Academic Decathlon

A couple weeks ago, Brice did something he hasn’t done in — quite literally — years. He — on his own — joined an extracurricular program at school, called Academic Decathlon (AcaDec). Essentially, this is competitive test-taking, which may not sound all that exciting to you unless you happen to be really good at taking tests.

Which Brice is.

The thing is, though, Brice joined the school’s AcaDec team pretty late in the year, and didn’t have time to read the books and essays that were the subject of this year’s essays and tests.

So he talked with some of his teammates, getting the best sense of the topics he could, and traveled with the team to the state competition.

When he came home, he told us all about the essay assigned: compare a particular Russian short story (which he hadn’t read, and the name of which I can’t remember) to the novel Dr. Zhivago (which he also hadn’t read).

“I totally had to bluff it,” he told the family, saying that he turned it into an essay comparing thematic scope potential of short stories to what is possible in novels, and what each is best suited for.

“Hey, don’t worry about it,” I started, wanting to let him know that to me it wasn’t important that he didn’t do well; it was great that he had simply tried.

Brice interrupted me by saying, “I took first place.”

And in fact, Brice was an important reason his team will now be participating in AcaDec online Nationals. 

He and I have agreed we will each read Dr. Zhivago  by then.

The Big Race

Getting back into his academic groove is only part of the story, though. Around the beginning of the year, Brice also agreed to train with me to run a five-mile race in Moab.

We started by running 2.5 miles, inching up to our longest run before the race itself: 4.25 miles last week.

An then, last weekend, we had the race itself. Brice and I would be running five miles together; The Hammer would be running the half marathon. Here’s the group of us together, sharing a moment as we waited for our respective turns at the port-a-potties:


And yes, Brice really is half a foot taller than The Hammer and I (Susan’s dad and grandfather were both 6′4″).

The Hammer went to get on a bus to the half-marathon starting line; Brice and I found ourselves at the end of the line for the bus to the five-mile starting line (same course, just eight miles further down the canyon). 

As it turned out, the last bus didn’t quite have room for us, so we — along with a half-dozen other runners — were put on a van. 

It was a very exciting ride:


Even as riders on the very last bus, we arrived at the starting line with almost an hour to kill. “Show me your awesome running pose,” I said. 


Brice is way too obliging.

We sat on a big rock, watching all the people mill around, with most everyone waiting for a turn at a port-a-potty:


I swear, races are 90% toilet-related.

The Start

At 9:20am, ten minutes before the race began, we ditched our coats and joined everyone else in a short walk down the canyon road to the starting line:


It was a good way to get ready for a race to begin — standing around for a long time at a starting line just makes me anxious, which in turn makes me need to pee (yes, more toilet-related observations. See?).

We got to the starting line just a couple minutes before the race began, and settled in where we figured we belonged: right in the middle of the pack.


“Are you nervous?” I asked Brice.

“A little,” he said. “Mostly, I just want to get started.”

“Show me your ‘very nervous’ face anyway,” I said.


Like I said, Brice is way too accommodating.

The starting gun went off precisely on time (this race has been run annually for more than thirty years; they know exactly what they’re doing), and we began. Brilliantly, I had set my camera to take rapid-fire shots, figuring that at least once in a while I’d capture Brice in the frame. And I was right:


And I even managed to capture the two of us together in a selfie. Of the fifteen shots I took while holding the camera pointing in our general direction, this was the best of them:


I need to learn not to hold my mouth open in that position when I’m concentrating. I think it may look a little bit silly.

The Rules

Honestly, I didn’t care even a tiny bit about how fast we went or whether we walked half of the course, or whatever. The fact that my son was outside, doing something with me, was a massive victory, and we both knew it.

“A year ago, would you have guessed you’d be out here today, doing this?” I asked.

“No way,” Brice said.

“You should be massively proud of how far you’ve come,” I said. “I am.”

“I’m proud of both of us,” said Brice. “We’re doing awesome.”

And he was right. We finished our first mile in under nine minutes, a pace faster than we had ever run in training.

“We haven’t run this far before,” I said, “So let’s be sure we agree the same rules apply during this race as did during training: either of us can declare a walking break at any time and we don’t have to give a reason. The walking break can go as long as necessary. Whoever starts the walking break also declares when it ends. Our objective isn’t to win anything, it’s to do this together.”

“Yep,” said Brice. But he continued going faster.


Our second mile was faster than our second — 8:19, I think. Maybe it was because of the adrenaline that comes with racing. Or maybe it was because of the drummers that famously play for the duration of the race, their booming drums echoing across the canyon:


“This is an amazing day,” Brice told me as we hit the halfway mark and came out of the canyon.

Price to Pay

Anyone who knows anything about adrenaline-fueled racing knows that it doesn’t last. As we crossed the three-mile sign, we slowed to a walk for break. In under a minute, though, we were back to running:


How did he get to be so tall and skinny? 

We took one more break at the four mile mark, after which I asked Brice to slow down a bit during the final mile. He was dropping me. 


Finish Line

With a half mile left to go, I looked ahead and could see the finish line banner. “We’re going to do it,” I said. 

“And we’re going to finish faster than Lisa’s projected time (47 minutes) for us,” Brice answered. And he was right:


46:34 by the clock, with corrected chip time of 46:15 for Brice:


And a similar placing for me:


And medals for both of us:


The Part I Didn’t Tell Him

“That was fun,” Brice told me, which was pretty much the most awesome thing I’ve ever heard in my whole life. 

“Let’s keep doing this,” I said. “Maybe even work up to a downhill half marathon this autumn.” He agreed we should. We started talking about doing  the Mt. Nebo half this Fall.

Then we walked into the post-race feed zone, which is really well stocked at this race. Cookies, chips, ice cream bars, chocolate milk, more chips, candy. Brice got some of everything. 


“You didn’t tell me about this part,” Brice said. “This is the best part of the race, by far.”

Which made me feel a little bit bummed about the sad little cup of water I had gotten for myself on the way through.

Stupid diet.

The Hammer

Brice and I walked back to the car, changed, and came back to the race venue to wait for The Hammer to finish. While we did, Brice went through the feed zone again (I figured we were within our rights, since I had gotten nothing at all on the way through).

Then we went to wait at the finish line. As we stood there I told Brice that The Hammer’s previous best on this course was a 1:45, so we started craning our necks, looking for her orange, black and white jersey at 1:40.

She came hauling through at 1:43, setting a personal best for this course, and a top-ten finish for her category: 


I got a picture of her with Estella, a woman we’ve become friends with, even though we never see her anywhere except for at races.


She’s not even from the same county as us, but we’ve run into her at this race twice, at the Ogden marathon, and at the Boston marathon. She and The Hammer run very similar times, and both have husbands considerably slower than they are.

And then a picture of the three of us, now post-race, taken by the guy guarding the feed zone (whom I could tell was getting ready to turn Brice and me away as we approached):


Heading Home

As we started home, Brice conked out immediately and slept for the duration of the three hour drive. Like most teenagers, he has an infinite capacity for sleep. 

As we drove home, I thought a little bit about what we had done: a five-mile race. We had built it up in our minds to be something big, but when it came down to it, the race itself had lasted just over three-quarters of an hour. 

A lot of the time, after a race I’ll feel a little let down, thinking to myself, “That’s it? That’s all there was to it? It seemed like such a big deal before I did it, and now it’s just something I’ve done.”

I guess races are as meaningful as you make them. And this time, what we did still seems huge. I don’t think that’s going to change.

    This race will be etched in your mind forever, Fatty. The elation from realization of how far you, and most especially Brice, have come to get to this race and the changes in the past year for Brice will never change. I ran my first half marathon yesterday (St. Patty’s Day) and I didn’t place top ten in anything. It was a last minute decision, I didn’t train for it, and was sick for 2.5 weeks before that race, but I cannot stop smiling each time I think about it and I will never forget that race for the rest of my life. I did meet my goal of finishing in under 3 hours in an official time of 2:57:07. I was barely under my goal and you can see it’s more than twice the time it took The Hammer to run the same distance with higher elevation, my course was pretty flat. I wouldn’t change my time, the race, or the lack of training for anything in this world, because for me, this race was HUGE. Much love to you & your family from me. Congrats to you & Brice for the experience, the bonding during training, and the accomplishment under the time that The Hammer estimated for you both. Great memories & great races like these can last a lifetime.

    Remember a while ago, when you were questioning if you wanted to continue the blog and what you’d write about? Just writing about your life is good enough for me. Thanks for sharing. Between this and the WSJ’s article on Taylor Phinney last week, I’ve got my motivation for this spring. Thanks!

    I love this post. Love it.

    And as someone living with bipolar, I know that sometimes the infinite battle is just to leave the house, much less run 5 miles.


  13. Comment by Jenny | 03.18.2013 | 8:59 am

    That is so great, congratulations to all of you, but especially Brice!

  14. Comment by Trevor | 03.18.2013 | 8:59 am

    This is totally awesome! Great job to both of you guys! You’re a great dad Fatty. This reminded me a lot of my first century ride that my mom signed me up when I was a senior in high school. I had been goofing off and partying a lot and spent no time training for it. Somehow I finished the 100 mile ride and shortly after turned my life around and began to bike like crazy. I can just really relate to this blogpost, thanks for sharing a really cool story.

  15. Comment by Cathy | 03.18.2013 | 9:00 am

    Thank you for this. My child is in Grade 8 and struggling with mental issues. Seeing that Brice has come through the other side and is actively participating in school and family activities gives me hope.

    Just awesome. I am so thrilled for both of you and for how far Brice has come. Thanks for sharing – very encouraging to other families who are struggling with similar issues. You are his best advocate, and he will know that well some day, if he doesn’t already. Hugs and congratulations to you both!

    It is good to see your sons continued progress. Exercise is the best antidepressant med. and its free. No side effects. I lost my son in a auto accident in Sept. of last year and it good to see how important your son is to you, because every day is a gift. I can tell you that every day I miss him terribly and the only thing that gets me thru is that I have promised him I will live my life to its fullest.

  20. Comment by Jeff Dieffenbach | 03.18.2013 | 10:51 am


    And as a cherry on top, we got to learn that Fatty’s “Sex Rank” is 120. Must be a Strava mode to which I haven’t yet earned access.

    And Fatty- “Our second mile was faster than our second” might need a bit of editing.

  26. Comment by Mellabella | 03.18.2013 | 12:21 pm

    This race has held a very special place in my heart for the last 8 years. I am so happy to see it hold one for you now as well. My bonus daughters raced the 5 mile too for the first time since their mom passed away participating in the race in 2005. I am so awed and thrilled to see joy triumph over sadness. Congratulations to Brice and to you :)

    This may be my all time favorite Fatty blog post. Brice has a fantastic smile and I’m sure you are beyond thrilled to see it again on a more regular basis. I bought a Kindle copy of Susan’s book as soon as it came out. I have no idea if I’ll ever get a chance to read it but I figured it was the least I could do to help pay you back for the entertaining blog.

  33. Comment by Jennifer | 03.18.2013 | 1:47 pm

    Brice has an infectious smile, I can’t help but grin while looking at the photos. Thank you so much for sharing.

  34. Comment by Melanie | 03.18.2013 | 2:00 pm

    Yeah, Brice!!! Awesome job!! Kudos to you as well, Fatty, for a great finish, a great approach, and producing such a great kid! Tears of pride and happiness were in my eyes throughout the reading of the Academic Dec and also the race. Here’s to more training and racing fun for you both, together!

  35. Comment by Cyclin' Missy | 03.18.2013 | 2:08 pm

    Soooooo awesome! Almost tearing up from this one. And I agree…Brice does have an infectious smile.

  36. Comment by RosieRider | 03.18.2013 | 3:00 pm

    Thanks for this one Fatty. It couldn’t have landed on a better day. My 18 year old is dealing with hard stuff right now, and I appreciate the reminder that kids can, and do, grow and bounce back and heal and everything else.

  37. Comment by Bo-be-wan-kan-o-be | 03.18.2013 | 3:31 pm

    I know where of you speak. My son, now 22, has been in a program (after many) that has made that difference. He’s now talking open, honestly and truthful to me and his Mom. It’s been a long time.
    I took him to the Bristol NASCAR race this weekend (the first time we’ve done anything together in YEARS), getting him credentials to get in the pits and garage, and, the team head set to hear the drivers and crew chiefs’ conversations. It was such a blast to introduce him to my friends in the sport and how they accepted him. He texted me this morning tell him how much he enjoyed our time together and how much he appreciated doing that for him. Tears flowed.
    God Bless Brice, God Bless Wil…..and those programs that bring our children to again be loving, sharing people.
    I am happy for you and Brice and know how that feels.

    P.S. And yes, Wil slept the whole way from Bristol to Asheville….uncompromising ability to sleep, those youngsters.

  38. Comment by Daniel Weise | 03.18.2013 | 3:34 pm

    Meant to ask – any chance of race reports from Brice and The Hammer?

  39. Comment by Brandon Banks | 03.18.2013 | 3:54 pm

    Love this post. Fantastic!

  40. Comment by Davidh-Marin,ca | 03.18.2013 | 4:01 pm

    Wait a minute! Fatty’s Mom is in Russia for another year!???? And there’s been no post about that? Is there no end to the wealth of material available to the Fat One???

    No doubt this report will be remembered as one of the best. It’s about family, and what it takes to make Family succeed.

    Congratulations Brice on being so patient and easing up on your Dad in the race.

    And thank you Elden for letting us be a part of your family.

    This is just the most awesome post I’ve read in awhile. Thank you for taking the time to share with us. My mom suffers from depression so I know firsthand what it’s like to live with someone who has this debilitating disease. I’m so happy for Brice and thankful that Cigna picked up some of the cost when it looked like they wouldn’t. I’m so happy that he is doing so well. I hope he knows that he has a big fan club cheering him on and rooting for his continued success. WIN!

    YAY FOR ACDEC! I’m 27 and still have my regional and state AcDec medals in a special place. It’s hard to explain to people, but it’s a wonderful thing and I’m still proud of what I did during the 2 years I was part of the team. Being part of a small, tightly-knit AdDec class also gave me something to focus on during my senior year in high school when my parents separated and I battled depression. I hope it also offers some refuge and affirmation for Brice and I wish him and his team all the best of luck at nationals!

    It was so awesome to see you all at the race. Last year, it was one of my highlights to see both of you at the start of the half, I was looking forward to seeing you guys again, so when I saw Lisa I got very happy, so happy that I forgot my husband was there, hahaha. It was great chatting with her and running alongside her.

    I am so happy that you had the opportunity to have this experience with your son. It does sound like the BEST 5 MILES EVER!

    Til next race my friends :)!

    Fatty, as happy as I am for you, I am much happier for Brice. Smart, handsome and tall!

    Oh yeah, and accomodating. :-)

    He’s going to set the world on fire.

    That is so cool about taking first place with his essay, not having read the books. That kind of skill will take him seriously far in life. Congratulations Brice!

  68. Comment by Carrie | 03.19.2013 | 11:50 am

    What an amazing experience to be able to have together. I hope you guys keep racing! I love all of the pics – especially Brice’s nervous face! It’s very common to feel some let down after a race. Part of what makes the event exciting is the anticipation and preparation.. and you are absolutely right – racing is what we make it and what you did was huge. Thank you so much for sharing this story. Brice is lucky to have you as a Dad – and it sounds like you are lucky too :)

    Reading your story brought a smile to my face, one I desperately needed, as I am suffering from my own depression at this time. It reminded me that I can make it through. Thank you.

    We have a 20 year old son that went through depression at your son’s age…..he made it though his late teenage years and will be an EMT in about a month.

    Your son is *awesome*

    Your best post in ages.

    Great to see Brice smiling so during the entire event. During a run, that’s saying something!
