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 [...]

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 [...]
