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?  Bring on the heat, the carnage, and whatever else the running gods can muster up, cuz 2013 marks the first time I am running Western States, and I want it to be memorable.  I want it to be a freakin’ steamer… This being my first run at Western, my personal thought on how I’ll do really does have me wondering.  Will the heat affect me? Of course, no shit.  Will the heat affect others? Of course, no shit.  Will there be carnage?  Of course, no shit.  Will I survive?  Of course, no shit.  Will I [...]

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 the past 5 months….which will be kinda brief.  After running the Bandera 100k in January, the Moab Red Hot 50k in February, Winning my 35th 100 at Antelope Island in March, then enjoying the Sonoma 50 mile track meet on April 13th, I”ve dropped off the radar.   I’ve had an issue after Sonoma, at mile 42, I was churning along about to run around 7 hours, which for me, on that course was pretty textbook.  I knew I wasn’t gonna compete with the front of the pack, so why bother. My goal was to [...]

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 15 miler on Antelope Island on December 1.  I was running along and within a minute or two, my left hamstring started to “hurt”.  I walked it in, the final 5 miles.  Ok, now what?  As I always do,  I went to see my doctor, Russ Toronto.  He is the man.  I  was diagnosed with an “inflamed peroneal nerve”.  If you don’t know what or where this is….it is where the sciatic nerve splits in the back of the hamstring about 3″ above the back of the knee.  It’s not pleasant, it doesnt’ allow extension [...]
