Barlow's wife is a licensed social worker and they have three children, ages 22, 15 and 11. His oldest is preparing to go to law school next year. "Most of my free time I spend with my family. We really like to travel and try to go on one big trip a year with the kids before they get to the point where they'd just as soon not spend any more time with Mom and Dad!"
Barlow has always enjoyed running and at age 46 started to compete in Masters Track and Field events. "I was a finalist in the 400 meters at the U.S. Masters National Championships in 2010, and have since moved over to competing in the decathlon. It has been a challenge picking up the pole vault, hurdles and discus with minimal time to train, but I am slowly getting better. I am especially looking forward to turning 50 in January when the hurdles come down 3 inches and all the throwing implements get lighter."
Barlow and his wife saw The Book of Mormon in Los Angeles "and loved it."
"We are both former Utah Mormons, and our families are Mormon, so we have a pretty good understanding of the culture," Barlow said. "I believe Trey Parker had said something like he could tell who the Mormons were in the audience since they are the ones who get all the jokes. We got all the jokes."
