This weekend brought me to the Bear 100 to crew a long time friend, Petra Pirc-McDowell. It’s been an eternity since I’ve posted anything on my ancient blog, but this time I figured, what the hell. After seeing many folks at the Bear 100 fight, struggle and swim in the mud, it deserved some love. Congrats to Brian Peterson on a fine win, just under 19 hours at 18:59.24. Congrats to Anna Frost for doing what she does, and shaving some time of a stellar record, previously set by Bethany Lewis. Anna ran 20:59.24, shaving 16 minutes, and Congrats to Petra for finishing the 100, 11 years since her last one eleven years ago. Her time gave her some sore quads, and third place in 25:45.51. The mud was ridiculous once it started raining. A shoe sucking nightmare. Anyone who finished this year is a hero in my opinion. I’m [...]

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 a penalty lap down at Pacific Mine. The runners with the asterisks have a time adjustment of 15 minutes to account for the extra distance they ran. The penalty lap was on a flat section. I ran this section to estimate the time deduction…so it’s pretty close. Things happen…..Any of the runners that ran this penalty lap and are not adjusted, please contact me and I’ll take care of business to make it right. In terms of prizes, it only affected a few lead runners. Check out some great photos from Pure Light Images, find [...]
That’s 165.70 in miles! The Jerker finally has rebounded taking “Fat Boy’s” american 24 hour record down, and Rae Clark’s “absolute american record”…whatever that means. ! We’ve been waiting for Scott to do something big….well, he did something big! Hell of a run Scott! Congrats on an incredible effort! Maybe we’ll see you back at UTMB so we can all redeem ourselves there too. I think he’s pretty psyched…well deserved my man!
