The Wasatch 100 and a Human Express adventure!

September 9 2010, 1:03 pm

First a look at the Wasatch 100 and who’s fast….. 1.  Nick Clark  3-1.  We have to give Nick the nod.  He’s had a great year.  4th at Western 16:05, second at the Speedgoat, ran 4 hours flat at Pikes Peak a few weeks ago. He’s the man to beat, unless Irv’s torture chamber gets Read More

Jez Bragg takes UTMB! US runner Mike Wolfe finishes 2nd!

August 29 2010, 6:03 am

This year we could almost consider this a UTMB stage race.  Starting in a downpour 2300 or so runners from all over the world took off from Chamonix on a journey only to be ended quickly at 30k, only about 18 miles into the race.  In the lead at the time was Killian Jornet (no surprise Read More

Tour Du Mont Blanc…..The Euro Superbowl!

August 15 2010, 8:58 am

And now we’re off to Italy for the Skyrunning Championships.  A 42k run with 4000 meters of climb, yah, that’s bigger than the Speedgoat race.  The UTMB race was cancelled due to inclement weather and a possible landslide.  Pretty disappointing, but a reasonable decision for the race committee to make.  We’ll report back with more Read More

Kevin Schilling and Keri Nelson take the Goat Leg!

August 1 2010, 12:55 pm

We had one glitch this year…..as things happen where a few lead runners took a wrong turn at Sinners Pass.  While the wrong turn was made, the distance is considered a wash as the route they took was .4 miles further than the loop around Mary Ellen Gulch.   There were roughly 6 runners that did Read More

6-pack or bust!

July 2 2010, 3:38 pm

We’re about 6.5 days away from Ultrarunning’s “Superbowl”.  We just witnessed the track meet, and it was awesome.  Let’s hope myself and a few other fast guys can entertain the world running around the San Juans. The Top contenders: Speedgoat Karl 2-1.  I give myself the nod as last year’s winner and clockwise record run.  Read More

Western States…Speedgoat Odds 2010

June 18 2010, 10:08 am

No doubt this will be the toughest “odds” I’ve ever done.  Picking the winners of this great race is certainly gambling.  The heat plays a huge factor.  A few WS rookies up front stand out as big overall favorites, but it’s a long way from Squaw to Auburn, and anything can happen. Some of the Read More

Broken…Bruised…Battered, but not beaten yet…

June 7 2010, 12:37 pm

Let me explain:  first, I’ll say “battered” should be “broken”, cuz my shoulder is broken now too. 🙂  See you all at Hardrock! The last 6 weeks have been tough.  Crashing backwards climbing over a dead tree started it all at Zane Grey.  We all know I broke my arm there.  The status on that Read More

Let’s Clarify….

May 31 2010, 8:07 am

 ONLY 4 SPOTS LEFT FOR A CHANCE TO RUN THE SPEEDGOAT 50K, register now! A few questions have been recently asked about my new Hoka runnin’ shoes. “Why would I buy shoes that Karl crashed in at Zane Grey?” “Did Karl crash because the Hoka’s have a higher base?” “Did the shoes make Karl stumble?” Like Read More

Jemez 50 Mile…..training run?

May 18 2010, 10:49 am

Hard to say what’s gonna happen this weekend in regards to me running the Jemez 50 mile.  I’ve been officially cleared to run if I want…that’s pretty cool only 4 weeks after a broken wing at Zane Grey.  Will I “race”?  No, not likely, the risk factor is still there if I crash….I tend to Read More
