This 76 year old CM Vet and Marine who served in Vietnam is Tom Miller. Tom kicked the demons after the war to do amazing work.
One of two books that Tom published was Programmed to Run. Tom was the guide for blind marathon runner Harry Cordellos during the first World Blind Marathon Championship in Vancouver, they won with a time of 3:00:59. Tom has ran an incredible amount of marathons, 5k, and 10ks, he even won his age group at the 2017 Xterra National Championship in Hawaii wearing his CM Jersey that he proudly supports.
We are honored to have Tom in the CM Family!
CM takes full advantage of what the great outdoors in Utah has to offer.
I would like to thank Eugene Swalberg from @utahstateparksandrec for meeting with me today.
We talked about the Honor Pass, to learn more visit their website (link below). As of July 1, 2016, the Division has begun offering a free Honor Pass to qualified veterans. Qualifications include being a Utah resident, being honorably discharged, and having a service related disability rating of 50% or greater.
Veterans meeting these requirements need only to provide a current Summary of Benefits letter issued by the Department of Veteran Affairs in order to obtain the Honor Pass at select locations across Utah.
The Honor Pass is valid for day use admittance to all state parks for the qualified veteran; as well as up to 7 guests in the same private vehicle. These passes are valid until the end of the calendar year they were issued. At that time, qualified veterans will need to bring updated documentation to once again receive a pass.

Happy New Year and see you all in 2018! Time for those New Year Resolutions.
Will it be to do your first 5k or Half-Marathon, eat healthier, get in better physical shape, make more time for yourself to do what you love, join more CM events? We all know that the gym in January will be packed and by February its back to normal again because, so many do not stick with their goals. In 2017 according to NBC News report, data was pulled from Google and the top 7 resolutions were: 1. Get Healthy 2. Get Organized 3. Live Life to the Fullest 4. Learn New Hobbies 5. Spend Less 6. Travel 7. Read More. They said there was a 315% increase in searches for gyms.
Personally, I think it is great so many want to get healthy as part of their New Years Resolution and I’m hoping everyone will stick to their plan. It takes a lot of discipline, hard work and a great support system. CM is a good support system, we have seen so many Veterans in 2017 get healthier, lose weight, meet or surpass their goals and become happier in life. In a recent survey with the CM Veterans 92% reported CM had a positive impact on their mental health.
In 2017 my goal was to finish in the top ten overall in trail running (short course), I finished third overall. I will run the long course series in 2018 hoping to finish in the top five overall. I like doing competition sports because it gives me a purpose to work hard and stay motivated to do my weekly workouts. If you are plaining on getting healthier find a 5k around the March or April time frame to get in shape for or learn a new sport like cross-country skiing, pickleball, or cycling. The number one thing is to stay motivated and to be around positive people that can support you with those goals.
Here is a list of 20 different events CM held during the 2017 year, what would you like to see added in 2018?
Bowling, Canoeing, Cross-Country Skiing, Cycling, Disc Golf, Family Events, Fat Tire Biking, Forging, Hiking, Indoor Rock Climbing, Mountain Biking, Paddle Boarding (SUP), Pickleball, River Rafting, Rock Climbing, Ski/Ride, Snowshoeing, Swim Party, Trail Running, Yoga
We want Utah Veterans to know about other nonprofits that can offer you support. Checkout their social media pages and websites. Please add in comments those I missed in Utah if not on this list.

I can’t say enough about how amazing the staff and students are at @wpapatriots The last three years the school holds a Veterans 5k in support of CM.
This year the students that raise the most donations in their class got to throw a pie in their teachers face and the student who raised the most in the school got to throw one in the Principals face.
These incredible students raised $5,298.32 🇺🇸 When this school says they are the “Patriots” they mean it.
Thank you to everyone who donated and the students who work so hard to support Veterans!
Love and Respect!!!
Giving up on myself and life is where I was heading before 2010, at that point I made the choice to improve my life for me, my family, and fellow Veterans. I would have never guessed that I would learn to alpine ski at age 40, race mountain bikes at age 43, and take 3rd place overall (45-49 age group) in trail running at age 46. A person can not help others or tell them how to improve their life if they are not doing it themselves. The other day I was out on a run, during this time I thought about how much of this incredible life I would have missed if I wouldn’t have made the choice to live life. Even though every day, week or month can have its challenges there’s nothing I can’t handle by going for a run, cycle, ski, disc golf, cross-country ski, mtb, etc. with family and fellow Veterans.
I would like to thank my CM Family for getting me out of the house and doing events with me, Love and Respect to All
