Check it out folks, the Wings for Life World Run is coming in May.  What is this?  Think about a race that happens globally in 38 locations on 6 continents!  Everyone starts at the same time. Some at 7am, some at 10pm all around the world.  The real catch is the “catcher car”.  The gun goes off, the “catcher car” gives us a half hour head start.  Once the car catches you…you’re out. Who wins?  Spinal Cord Research.  100% of proceeds go directly to Spinal Cord Research.  Join me in Denver on May 4 at 4am.  See how long you last! How about that two posts in two weeks from Speedgoat Karl.   Check out my Speedgoat odds, coming on Monday morning.  The race:  The North Face 50 on December 7th.  I’ll be handicapping the top 20 men and women.  The field is super stacked and competitive for the $10,000 [...]

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 to give it a shot.  Who does this, right? The event was held at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, just south of Coos Bay, Oregon.  This is one of the nicest golf resorts in the U.S.  At $250 a greens fee, I figured my $250 entry fee would be just fine, with two practice rounds, and two tournament rounds.   It all equaled out in the end to about 4 ½ hours of golf, the standard time for an 18 hole round.   The tournament rules are simple,  it’s golf, be honest.  No mulligans for you.  Scoring [...]

Next year’s race will open registration on January 1, 2014 at 7am MST.   I expect to see the race fill quickly.  Last year we filled in about 3 weeks, this year, I”m gonna guess one week. So make sure you’re on it this time. I will have a waitlist active, but don’t expect it to move until around June.   Go to the Speedgoat race page for more info.  On the docket for this year is a potential for a higher prize purse, a bigger field, and as always, some stellar competition from some of the world’s best ultrarunners.  Expect to see world class aid station, a first class event, and a good time had by all, especially me, who will be highly entertained as runners cross the finish line.  I might throw in a few more hills too…..maybe.  And what’s up with me?  This marks the 17th year [...]
