Sometimes I wonder how I do it. I went into the Zion 100k with the intention of running strong to the finish.  I had no intentions of “racing” off the front.  It just happened.   With a total of about 130 miles on my legs since the Moab 55k on February 14th, I managed to squeak out win # 55, and setting a new CR in the process.   The field was not particularly stacked, but at the same time, a win is a win, and knowing I can still pound out 62 miles off the couch is a pretty good confidence booster heading into the summer months.   We started the race with the 100 mile runners at 6am.  Jeff Browning and I ran through the cold air for a few miles up to the top of the Flying Monkey  trail.  I then pulled away from  Jeff in the [...]

Good question eh?  Once again, I’ve fallen off the radar a bit, running around trying to stay ahead of the game.  I always seem to be so far behind…However, today, I am ahead. I was able to run pain free for a whopping 8 miles.  After completing the Moab 55k a few weeks back, I had a hard time recovering from a lingering minor calf strain.  It is no longer lingering and I am finally back at it.  I’ve been travelling alot in support of the Wings for Life World Run, a global event for spinal cord injury research.   This “charity run” will happen in 3 locations in the US, and 34 other locations on 5 other continents.  Hit that link and check it out. I’ll be running in Denver if you’d like to come join me for a great cause. I’ve been golfing to stay sane, with all [...]

It has been quite some time now, since I’ve done any sort of race predictions/odds.   It is about time I step up and take a crack at “guessing” who will take home the $10,000 at this ridiculously stacked race.    Both the men’s and women’s field should be close all the way back to Ft. Barry in the Marin Headlands on Dec 7.  So….it’s off to the races for me as I hope to NOT get chicked once again.  Last time Anna got me, this time….we shall see.  So here it goes,  Ladies first: 1.  Emelie Forsberg  3-2.  Emelie has proven her dominance at distances up to 100k.  Her win at UROC showed she could hang long enough.  As long as she has still been running and not skiing entirely, I think she’ll win by 10 minutes, chick me, and go sub 7. 2.  Stephanie Howe  3-1.  Why not [...]
