Speedgoat 50k 2014 and some golf to boot

October 13 2013, 9:42 am

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 Read More

6 days till we sprint around in a circle?

June 23 2013, 9:00 am

Well, not really it’s a point to point 100 mile run I like to call a “track meet”.  It’s a fast one coming up, lots of fast guys and gals running from Squaw Valley to Auburn, CA on smooth singletrack thru the forest…And hopefully this year, it’ll have record temps, can we say maybe 110? Read More

Where the hell have I been?

May 29 2013, 10:16 am

Running around the world of course right?  Well, not neccessarily.  I”ve been a busy boy, trying to keep up with life. Often it’s overrated to think I can’t even put a lousy blog post, but such is life.  Priorities are in other areas right now.  But here I am, writing about what has gone on Read More

An “off the couch macro taper” at the Bandera 100k

January 15 2013, 12:50 pm

It’s been a pretty interesting 7 weeks.  I ran more miles at the Bandera 100k this weekend than I’ve accumulated over the past 7 weeks.  Hence, the “macro taper”.  My goal after running the Chimera 100 mile was to train well, and do well at Bandera.  Well, all solid training took a backseat on a Read More

Speedgoat 50k entry info, and some other random stuff….

December 4 2012, 1:15 pm

About time eh?  I’ve been a little off the radar lately. I’m sure we’ll be yacking about “Ultrarunner of the Year” soon.   This week’s NF50 didn’t have too much of an affect on the voting.   I took a quick jaunt down to Lake Elsinore, CA and ran the Chimera 100 on November 17th. Read More

Now what?

October 13 2012, 6:24 am

Well, my 4 week roadtrip is over.  I put 6000 miles on my Tacoma.  It seemed to blow by even faster than my fastest 100 miler.  So….what do I do now?  Shall I run a local race?  chill out and wait for the snow to fly?, or look into another 100 miler to try and Read More

Time to Grind it one more time.

October 4 2012, 5:49 am

I just can’t get enough eh?  Tomorrow evening at 6pm,  I”m firing up the Hokas again and running another classic 100 miler in Virginia, the Grindstone 100 near Swoope.  Clark Zealand puts on a great race and a tough course in central Virginia. I’ve been here before, in 2009….won it and have the course record Read More

The Big “Money Run” has arrived!

September 11 2012, 4:00 pm

With a fat carrot for the winner of this year’s innaugural “Run Rabbit Run 100“, we would assume the field would be deep with talent.  Yup, it’s got talent.  No doubt the winning time will be swift, and it’ll be competitive up front all the way around the mountain town of Steamboat, Colorado. I’ve been Read More

The Wasatch 100, 2012

August 29 2012, 3:51 pm

Well, it’s been forever again that I haven’t posted anything about anything.   I’ve been a busy boy training for the Steamboat 100 on September 14th.  We’ll get to that big money dance next week after Wasatch.   The Wasatch 100, one of the greatest 100 mile routes on earth, is once again….not a real Read More

Speedgoat 50k is in the books….

August 6 2012, 4:31 pm

as one of the most competitive 50k’s in the US this year.   Big 50k’s don’t happen much during summer months…..not the case here.   We’ve all read the reports over at Irunfar, so I’ll spare the details for now, but the bottom line is: All the frontrunners were fast, the mid-pack had fun, and Read More
