Way Too Cool…The Speedgoat Odds are in!

March 5 2008, 3:36 pm

This race will hands down be the most competitive 50k so far this year with at least 4 runners with the ability to go under 3:30 on the rolling singletrack. Ulli Steidl’s record will remain safe at 3:18+, (in my opinion) but the Cool Champion will be close. I predict a 3:24.20 for the men! Read More

Off to LA!

February 28 2008, 12:35 am

Time to head to the LA Marathon to see how all the road runners do it! I’ll be hanging in Hollywood and working at the Moeben booth at the LA Marathon Expo this weekend. Hal Koerner, Erik Skaggs, and Jenn Shelton are my other 3 comrades who’ll be enjoying the show. It’ll be nice to Read More

Trail Race Season heating up!

February 15 2008, 7:18 pm

Three cool trail races this weekend! The “I’m a little bit haggered” Hagg Lake 50k, TheMt. Cheaha 50kto the summit of Mt. Cheaha, and the Cross Timbers 50mi, in Texas. Mt Cheaha looks to be the most competitive with Tom Possert, DeWayne Satterfield, Dink Taylor and Jamie Dial. I’m taking Taylor by 5 over Satterfield, Read More

Speedgoat Karl’s odds at the Red Hot 50k

February 14 2008, 4:20 pm

Kyle Skaggs is the no-brainer pick at 3-1. Kyle should be able to run away with it on his 22 year old legs. I’ll givehim a run for it, but will have a tough time hanging unless Kyle starts wandering around the desert aimlessly. I’ll give myself a 5-1 chance if I can run a Read More

Fleet Footed Brimhall makes me 2 for 3

February 10 2008, 3:07 pm

Josh had exactly what I expected with Kelly Mortenson nipping at his heels at the Pemberton 50k. Josh recorded one of the fastest winning times with a swift 3:21.39. Kelly finished strong at 3:26.09. In the womens race, Jamie Donaldson slipped under 4:20 running 4:18.11. 15+ minutes ahead of Juliet Morgan and Honey Albrecht who Read More

Pemberton 50k this weekend!

February 9 2008, 1:10 am

Brimhall is my favorite for a fast one in the desert. Josh will probably be chased by some mystery man…we love to see it! Paul Dewitt’s record is slick at 3:11.55 on the fast track! Enjoy the dirt people! I’m over the snow-runnin! We’re runnin’ on snow at the Speedgoat 50K! Moab next week for Read More

Pacheco wins Ultra #2…Rocky Raccoon

February 6 2008, 2:38 pm

Jorge Pacheco, without Anton Krupicka at his heels, nailed down another stellar time at RR with a textbook 14:12. The number is up to beat for the fastest 100 of the year. Jorge also won the Avalon 50 a few weeks earlier to make it 2 for 2. The race for Speedgoat of the Year Read More

Here comes another Storm!

February 3 2008, 3:31 pm

The snow continues to fly in Utah! My last snow report for Snowbird Ski Resort listed 271″ YTD. That post was January 23rd. The bird now sits at 348″ YTD, today, February 3rd. Just another 77″ the last week and a half! Freakin’ out of control! Another storm is pushing in to dump another couple Read More

Josh Beckham takes Mountain Mist 50K!

January 27 2008, 11:59 pm

In a heated battle, Josh Beckham threw down a fast performance and outlasted David Rindt and DeWayne Satterfield crossing the line 6 and 8 minutes in front, respectively. Dave Mackey’s Record remains immaculate as usual, but only 11 minutes quicker. Patricia Smith also ran a great race outdistancing Wendy Parker-Dial by just over 5 minutes, Read More
