September 29 2014, 7:41 am

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.  Read More

For a quick listen on my failed Appalachian Trail record attempt in 2014.  Go check out the Talk Ultra page on Facebook.  I’m too lazy to post a final report here.    Well, I’m not really too lazy, but it’s just easier to listen to the interview.  Enjoy, and return soon for an update on Read More

One more off the couch win for mankind

April 8 2014, 10:14 am

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 Read More

Where have I been?

March 13 2014, 2:04 pm

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 Read More

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 Read More

Almost 3 weeks ago, I played in the Speedgolf World Championships.  Speedgolf? I was introduced to Speedgolf about 8 months ago from Tim Scott, the executive director of Speedgolf International.  Apparently he found out that I used to play some pretty good stick.   After hearing that Bernard Lagat and Nick Willis were playing, I had Read More
