May 12 2010, 4:58 pm

One of my favorite 100 milers happens this weekend in Virginia.¬† The Massanutten 100.¬† This race is a rocky one and moderately hilly to my standards.¬† Total climbing in the 18,000′ range.¬† The course is somewhat different this year, starting at a different location. It should be a real competitive race up front.¬† Noone reallly Read More

Miwok 100K happens Saturday, the field is “pretty solid”. ūüôā Here’s my picks: THE MEN 1.¬†Anton Krupicka¬†5-2.¬† We all know if he has no¬†injury issues, he should be gone daddy gone.¬† He’s been training hard, comes from 8000′ ish and should be able to challenge Mac Daddy’s record if has his day in the sun.

April 19 2010, 8:58 am

Tom Crawford….the guy I passed with a few miles to go at Moab….just crushed the field at the Leona Divide 50.¬† LD legend Jorge Pacheco ran second and Ashland’s newest fast guy Nick Lewis slipped under 7 hours to run 3rd.¬† All three of these times would have won the race many times.¬† How ironic Read More

March 15 2010, 10:50 am

By Default?  Yah, while hanging at the Way Too Cool 50k this past weekend, it was quite entertaining to watch the race from the other side of the fence.  I made the best of it and went for a 10 mile run and put myself out on the course to watch where no other spectators were.   Read More

For me that is!  Performances continue to be stellar! My 20 day hiatus from running in December had done me good!  My legs turned fresh again, and I was ready to roll.  I started back up and in two weeks, I was up to speed, feeling good and ready to have a decent run at Read More
