Finally……..the luge video

March 28 2012, 9:10 am

Enjoy folks!   It’s taken a bit of time to make this one, but man oh man….time well spent!  Look to the right, it’s right there, and it ain’t goin’ nowhere for a while.  Hugs and kisses to Tom Maartens of Pure Light Images for putting this vid together.  2 hours of video condensed into Read More

Antelopes, Buffalo, and a big ole’ herd.

March 21 2012, 4:18 pm

This weekend, well Friday (cuz’ we’re in Utah) I’ll be running the Antelope Island 100 mile.  This will be my second 100 this year. I’m not really sure what to expect, but feel pretty good physically to run around 15 hours.  That, of course, is if all goes well.  I’ve had off and on battles Read More

Time for Barfanut

March 13 2012, 8:45 am

So, once again, it’s been forever for me to put together a new post. The Chuckanut 50k is quite stacked, so I figured I’d better get on it.  Not gonna do odds on this one, cuz” way too many guys and and gals in the field I don’t know. I still think I can guess Read More

Another day at the office

February 21 2012, 9:51 am

Once again, a bit behind in creating some masterful post.  This past weekend brought me to the Red Hot 50k down in Moab, Utah.   The competition here is usually pretty solid, this year was no different.  I had no real goals this time around, it being only two weeks after running 14:17 at the Rocky Read More

A whole month without a post?

February 1 2012, 9:36 am

Needless to say, it’s been a busy month:  I have been going non-stop for the past 30 days.  Running, working, building a luge run, putting up signs, shoveling snow, doing a podcast, cleaning up my flooded basement, going to the doctor, working some more, buying new appliances…..well, I think we all get the picture, sometimes Read More

Speedgoat Odds, Bandera 100k

January 2 2012, 9:01 am

OK, so this will be the first of many “Speedgoat Odds” predictions for races in 2012.  The Bandera 100k looks like a good start, so here we go….. 1.  Dave Mackey  3-2.  Dave goes in as the favorite being the record holder, and is gonna have to run fast to win, but his track record Read More

And you thought paying 275 bucks was alot to run a race….

“Americans who are not in the ‘NYRRC’ club will pay $255, while non-U.S. citizens will pay $347”.  I woke up this morning and was just disturbed reading this.   Kinda gives me the willies, could you imagine paying 300 bucks to run a 50k with real aid stations, big mountains, and more than just water Read More

My year in review

December 20 2011, 10:43 am

This year has been quite interesting.  It was going pretty well until the deluge in Ojai, California at the C2M 100.  But let’s start at the beginning.  Warning, this may be a long read….I ran a total of 10 races, one of them being a short marathon in the foothills of SLC, two 50’s and Read More

Jay Aldous throws it down again!!!  And I thought I was old and kinda fast.  🙂  In Jay’s 3rd 100 since mid October…(yah, that’s 3 in 2 months time)  He’s run 3 fast 100s.  15:20 ish at Pony Express in mid October, 15:06 at Javelina in early November, and now a stunning 13:52 on a boring Read More

Let the “Bunny meter” grow

December 12 2011, 7:37 am

Finally we’ve got a 100 mile race with a real purse!  The “Goal” is to bring the purse to $100,000, where the world’s best 100 mile runners can chase each other around Steamboat, Colorado, and actually go home with some real money to pay the mortgage, or perhaps even buy a car.  The 100k is not Read More
