Where have I been?

March 13 2014, 2:04 pm

Good question eh?  Once again, I’ve fallen off the radar a bit, running around trying to stay ahead of the game.  I always seem to be so far behind…However, today, I am ahead. I was able to run pain free for a whopping 8 miles.  After completing the Moab 55k a few weeks back, I Read More

The North Face Endurance Challenge 50 predictions. a.k.a. Speedgoat odds

November 25 2013, 2:59 pm

It has been quite some time now, since I’ve done any sort of race predictions/odds.   It is about time I step up and take a crack at “guessing” who will take home the $10,000 at this ridiculously stacked race.    Both the men’s and women’s field should be close all the way back to Read More

The Wings for Life World Run is cool

November 20 2013, 4:38 pm

Check it out folks, the Wings for Life World Run is coming in May.  What is this?  Think about a race that happens globally in 38 locations on 6 continents!  Everyone starts at the same time. Some at 7am, some at 10pm all around the world.  The real catch is the “catcher car”.  The gun Read More

A new Career?

November 14 2013, 11:17 am

Almost 3 weeks ago, I played in the Speedgolf World Championships.  Speedgolf? I was introduced to Speedgolf about 8 months ago from Tim Scott, the executive director of Speedgolf International.  Apparently he found out that I used to play some pretty good stick.   After hearing that Bernard Lagat and Nick Willis were playing, I had Read More

Speedgoat 50k 2014 and some golf to boot

October 13 2013, 9:42 am

Next year’s race will open registration on January 1, 2014 at 7am MST.   I expect to see the race fill quickly.  Last year we filled in about 3 weeks, this year, I”m gonna guess one week. So make sure you’re on it this time. I will have a waitlist active, but don’t expect it Read More

6 days till we sprint around in a circle?

June 23 2013, 9:00 am

Well, not really it’s a point to point 100 mile run I like to call a “track meet”.  It’s a fast one coming up, lots of fast guys and gals running from Squaw Valley to Auburn, CA on smooth singletrack thru the forest…And hopefully this year, it’ll have record temps, can we say maybe 110? Read More

Where the hell have I been?

May 29 2013, 10:16 am

Running around the world of course right?  Well, not neccessarily.  I”ve been a busy boy, trying to keep up with life. Often it’s overrated to think I can’t even put a lousy blog post, but such is life.  Priorities are in other areas right now.  But here I am, writing about what has gone on Read More

An “off the couch macro taper” at the Bandera 100k

January 15 2013, 12:50 pm

It’s been a pretty interesting 7 weeks.  I ran more miles at the Bandera 100k this weekend than I’ve accumulated over the past 7 weeks.  Hence, the “macro taper”.  My goal after running the Chimera 100 mile was to train well, and do well at Bandera.  Well, all solid training took a backseat on a Read More

Speedgoat 50k entry info, and some other random stuff….

December 4 2012, 1:15 pm

About time eh?  I’ve been a little off the radar lately. I’m sure we’ll be yacking about “Ultrarunner of the Year” soon.   This week’s NF50 didn’t have too much of an affect on the voting.   I took a quick jaunt down to Lake Elsinore, CA and ran the Chimera 100 on November 17th. Read More

Now what?

October 13 2012, 6:24 am

Well, my 4 week roadtrip is over.  I put 6000 miles on my Tacoma.  It seemed to blow by even faster than my fastest 100 miler.  So….what do I do now?  Shall I run a local race?  chill out and wait for the snow to fly?, or look into another 100 miler to try and Read More
