The Hoka Speedgoat 50k is here!

July 26 2012, 10:33 pm

The flowers are out, the field is thick, go to IRunFar and check out my video predictions.  Bryon does a great job lining up the field for me, I’m going to bed. See ya all Saturday and watch it live on IrunFar.  Goodnight….

Hardrock is finally here!

July 10 2012, 2:35 pm

So how is it gonna pan out?  Well, the race will be interesting, with a few of the top guns bailing before the start, it gives the potential of early carnage….not so good.  I would rather see a faster field go out early and ruin themselves so this old man can mop of their mess. Read More

Speedgoat 50k waitlist will close on June 30!

June 26 2012, 7:44 am

last chance folks to get on the waitlist,, there will be NO EXCEPTIONS after June 30.    After enjoying the Western States Track Meet, stay tuned for the Hardrock 100 odds coming soon.

Western States 100 is back in action, and it’ll be a heater!

It’s always hot right?  Competition and temps make this race the most watched event of 100 miles.  Once again this year, the men’s and women’s field’s are strong as ever.  As usual, the race will end up being about 10 guys and gals at Foresthill.  Some will blow early, some will surprise us.  What do Read More

Speedgoat 50k course “modification”. :-)

May 17 2012, 10:26 am

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any harder…..think again!   I just finished working on a new “idea” I had.  I was out running yesterday and figured it would be safer for 300 runners to ascent  Baldy from the Mineral Basin side, instead of descending down the nasty, rocky, Chausy chute.  So, instead of Read More

Young Money takes Transvulcania!

May 12 2012, 6:48 am

Dakota won it!  What the hell was he on?  Way to kill it Dakota!  Andy Symonds second, about a minute back. Killian Jornet 3rd, 10 minutes back. Anna Frost won the womens race. No surprise there. That’s all I gotta say.  Other than….what’s next Dakota, sub 23 at Hardrock?  It’s certainly looking possible.  

Transvulcania Curse?

May 11 2012, 7:04 am

Well, the boys and girls are all a few hours from toe-ing the line with some of the best trail runners on earth.  Will the curse of Americans continue, running anywhere off our own soil?  I doubt it,but it still remains to be seen.  It’s only 50 miles ish, so we won’t see drops, too Read More

Had to bug out

May 4 2012, 3:53 pm

For the first time since 2000 (when I had a bulging disc) I decided to bug out of the Ice Age 50 mile next weekend.  It’s not like me to do something like this, but I’m feeling the need to “get my vert on” and start running and hiking uphill, endlessly, till I can’t go Read More

Broken Arm Redemption

April 18 2012, 2:31 pm

So I’m gonna go run Zane Grey this weekend.   Looks to be a steamer, somewhere around 90 degrees.   There’s nothing like traversing below the Mogollon Rim near Payson, AZ.  No trail or race, that I can speak of, is any more technical than this one.  It is pure ugliness.  Just the way I Read More

This year it’s flooded, but not with H2O.

April 10 2012, 9:37 am

The Lake Sonoma 50 mile will easily be the most competitive “early season” 50 mile.  The field is stacked deep.  John Medinger over at Ultrarunning Mag has assembled a stout list of trail runners, racing for some fine brew at the finish line.   It’s sure to be nuts up front.  A peleton may even Read More
