“Americans who are not in the ‘NYRRC’ club will pay $255, while non-U.S. citizens will pay $347”.  I woke up this morning and was just disturbed reading this.   Kinda gives me the willies, could you imagine paying 300 bucks to run a 50k with real aid stations, big mountains, and more than just water Read More

Jay Aldous throws it down again!!!  And I thought I was old and kinda fast.  🙂  In Jay’s 3rd 100 since mid October…(yah, that’s 3 in 2 months time)  He’s run 3 fast 100s.  15:20 ish at Pony Express in mid October, 15:06 at Javelina in early November, and now a stunning 13:52 on a boring Read More

Let the “Bunny meter” grow

Finally we’ve got a 100 mile race with a real purse!  The “Goal” is to bring the purse to $100,000, where the world’s best 100 mile runners can chase each other around Steamboat, Colorado, and actually go home with some real money to pay the mortgage, or perhaps even buy a car.  The 100k is not Read More

Another season comes to an end.  I started strong, finished strong, and had a few issues in the middle when all the big boys were in France.  It was an interesting year to say the least.  2 100 mile wins, some fast times, and I feel like I didn’t do anything.  A full recap is Read More

Question is….

If there were a 100 mile race at Snowbird, on Speedgoat terrain, would you run it? It would be a 4 lapper, (I know, not very appealing right?)  But think about it, Snowbird offers the highest mountains in the Wasatch Range and 4 laps would be very entertaining.  It wouldn’t be as tough as the Read More
