Are You Up to the Live Big Challenge?

The Live Big Challenge is in memory of Bryan Byrge, Fishbowl Blog
The Live Big Challenge is in memory of Bryan Byrge, Fishbowl BlogBryan Byrge encouraged everyone to “Live Big.” He lived by those words, and even though he’s no longer with us, we honor his memory by participating in the Live Big Challenge. This year’s Live Big Challenge will take place on Saturday, August 22, 2015. Those that are not interested in biking at all are welcome to come from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be plenty of music, food trucks, and activities for kids. A Memorial Walk around the field will be at noon followed by a raffle and auction. Also, come meet James (The Iron Cowboy) Lawrence and listen to his story of achieving the impossible challenge of completing 50 Iron Man challenges in all 50 states in 50 days in his quest to uplift and inspire. This is the perfect story of how to Live Big! The organizers of this event have something special in store for cyclists. Not only will there be a nice, flat 20-mile course and a 40-mile somewhat mountainous course, but this year there is going to be a 101-mile Epic Loop! That last one will definitely live up to its name. All of these races will begin at the Orem Cemetery Field at approximately 1200 North 800 East in Orem, Utah. (more…)

Fishbowl's 2014 Salt to Saint Relay participants at the finish line, Fishbowl Blog This past weekend, more than a dozen Fishbowl employees participated in a huge relay bike race that went all the way from Salt Lake City in northern Utah down to St. George at the southwest corner of Utah. The race is appropriately called the Salt to Saint Relay. Utah isn’t exactly known for its flat terrain, and this 425-mile race has a 20,000-foot increase in elevation. It takes a special kind of person to want to take on a challenge like that. (more…)
