It’s been a slow start to 2010!

January 30 2010, 8:28 am

For me that is!  Performances continue to be stellar! My 20 day hiatus from running in December had done me good!  My legs turned fresh again, and I was ready to roll.  I started back up and in two weeks, I was up to speed, feeling good and ready to have a decent run at Read More

Drumroll please!

On Monday morning Ultrarunning Magazine will announce the “Ultrarunners of the Year”.  Who’s it gonna be?  All we know is that it’s a tough vote.  So many variables, so many races, so many different circumstances, so many different courses.  I could go on and on and on, but I won’t.  Tune in Monday morning after Read More

The final big dance of 2009…..The North Face 50 odds!

December 2 2009, 9:01 am

First off, this is a tough one.  There are so many solid runners in this race, it could go to any of the top 10 I have listed below.   I like to think experience will play a role in who takes home the cake! The men: Ulli Stiedl 5-2.   No doubt  Ulli is the fastest in Read More

Time to eat!

With the big turkey day upon us, think about running far today.  Coming next week is the North Face 50 odds!  This should definately be a hot race to follow.  Hopefully, I’ll have some connection in Cali to get me the results.  I’m working on that.  With $10,000 on the line for the winner, it’s sure Read More

The most competitive Wasatch 100 ever!

September 6 2009, 7:22 am

This year’s Wasatch 100 is lined up to be a burner.  Not only will it be warm, ( at this point ) but the heat, dust, and dry overgrown conditions should make it an interesting race to watch, and more interesting to run up front.  It’s a tough one to pick. The way I look at it there Read More

Check out Mt. Blanc now!

Scott Jurek is currently in 3rd place and still in position to win the European’s big dance.  Check it out here. Last year’s winner is currently leading, but the pressure is on.  Let’s hope Scotty J can rally and pull it off….completely under our radar….go Scott! Krissy Moehl is now in the lead and looking Read More

The Leadville 100

August 19 2009, 12:58 pm

Timmy Parr takes the dance at 17:27!  A fast start weeded out the field, but a few guys hung tough to the end.  Nick Lewis from Memphis, TN placed a strong second in his first 100 mile adventure and paid 13-1. He plans on spending his winnings on prep for next year.  I had the Read More

A race shorter than 100 miles?

August 6 2009, 7:27 pm

This coming Saturday, I’ll test myself at the Jupiter Peak Steeplechase in Park City, Utah.  This race is a whopping 16 miles with about 4000′ of elevation gain on prime PC singletrack.  I’ve run it before in a little over 2 hours.  I don’t plan on racing real hard, just trying to put in a Read More

White River 50 on tap this weekend……

July 25 2009, 6:41 am

Here’s my picks.  It’s off the cuff and only done in a few minutes cuz’ I’m off to dig a ditch and do trailwork for the Wasatch 100.  1.   Anton looked good on the treadmill at the OR show, he’s had 6 weeks of healthy running and is probably hungry to bust one out. 2.  Read More

The “wild” and scenic Bighorn 100 gets a little too “wild”!…..And the Western States Odds!

June 22 2009, 3:44 pm

I put my odds for Western on the previous post, but for some even more entertaining info, read on…..the Bighorn 100 was an adventure into the wilderness where sometimes it gets just a little scary! The Bighorn 100 was another great win for me….that’s #25 in the 100 mile trail race “win category”.  Nick Clark Read More
