Track meet coming soon, the Western States-Speedgoat Odds have arrived

June 20 2011, 2:00 pm

The Western States 100 will certainly be a great race to watch.  Put your reading glasses on folks, this one’s gonna take a while.  If I pick em’ even remotely close, it’s all luck, cuz’ it doesn’t get any tougher than this one, and all my research on every runner listed below comes straight off Read More

147″ and counting down…..I hope!

June 14 2011, 3:26 pm

Yep, there is still 147″ of snow at 9600′ on the Speedgoat course.  That’s alot, runners may be bumping into skiers come race day.  Won’t that be entertaining! The race is now full, but we are accepting those still interested to join the wait list, typically we could have about 35 runners on that wait Read More

Speedgoat 50k almost full!

June 9 2011, 7:30 am

Only 3 spots remain for a chance to run the toughest 50k in town.  Only 11,693′ of vertical gain to entertain you.  Some snow, some rocks, some really ugly trail is all we need for a full day’s work.  Expect the course to have some snow, but don’t expect it to change because of it.  Many areas Read More

Website under construction! but read below if you haven’t already. I’ll admit, I was thirsty. The Massannutten 100 becomes monumental!

May 16 2011, 12:22 pm

Thirsty? what do I mean? This past weekend I was in Virginia to run the Massannutten 100 miler. It is one of my favorite courses. It is rocky, technical, somewhat hilly, and difficult to say the least, for the “average” 100 mile runner…right up my alley. This was to mark my 5th time running this Read More

Miwok 100k coming Saturday!

May 3 2011, 3:11 pm

This week the Miwok 100k is set and primed to be fast, the field is stacked as usual.  I don’t think either Tony Krupicka or Geoff Roes will be running.  There names are on the list, but Tony hasn’t mentioned it as he normally would, and Geoff just ran a smooth 100 in Santa Barbara Read More

Wait a minute…….

Dan Vega wins Antelope Island, but a goat came close….and look at the odds at the Sonoma Lake 50 mile!

March 27 2011, 7:47 am

I’d like to say I finished two 100 milers in 6 days, but I can’t say that as the C2M Hurricane threw that plan out the window…but it felt like 2 100s.  I have no official finish at C2M, so I’ll let that be.  My official finish at the Antelope Island Buffalo Run comes in Read More

Time to run with some Buffalo, and get chased by some Antelope!

March 25 2011, 6:32 am

Well, I”m gonna start in a few hours at the Antelope Island 100.  Not really sure how it’s gonna go.  I was stuck by a Yucca plant at last week’s Coyote Two Moon 78 miler, directly in my right IT band….it is still a bit swollen and funky.  C2M was cancelled in mid-race if you haven’t Read More

Coyotes for breakfast, Antelope for dinner and Buffalo chili for dessert!

The next few weeks should be interesting.  I’ve got 54 holes to play, 200 miles to race, and 1500 miles to drive.  Should make for an entertaining 2-3 weeks coming up.  1st:  Drive to California, hook up with some friends and play some stick on what may be the most famous golf courses in the world, Read More

Well, round #1 is over….

February 13 2011, 9:26 am

After running 100 miles on the flattest route ever, my body has come to realize 100 miles, really, is not that far.  But I already knew that.  Running a PR on 6 weeks of training certainly has me encouraged for the upcoming season.  There were only a few days training over the past 6 weeks Read More
