The Western States 100 will certainly be a great race to watch.  Put your reading glasses on folks, this one’s gonna take a while.  If I pick em’ even remotely close, it’s all luck, cuz’ it doesn’t get any tougher than this one, and all my research on every runner listed below comes straight off the cuff.  I did not look at any runners results from the past 6 months.  Let’s see how I do this time.   The field is so stacked, creating an actual “odds” is nearly impossible, but here it goes. 1.  Geoff Roes 2-1. He won it last year, ran 15:07, hasn’t lost at 100 miles yet, has beaten everyone below,  and I can bet he feels less pressure as a previous winner than any other previous winner.  His attitude towards racing these things is perfect.  He let’s it evolve and runs his own deal.  He’s got [...]

Yep, there is still 147″ of snow at 9600′ on the Speedgoat course.  That’s alot, runners may be bumping into skiers come race day.  Won’t that be entertaining! The race is now full, but we are accepting those still interested to join the wait list, typically we could have about 35 runners on that wait list, so don’t hesitate to at least put your name on it.  Go to the race page and hit “register” and it’ll bring you to Ultrasignup.   Please, if you can not run the race this year, let me know so I can take you off the list and move another eager mountain goat to join the fun.  If I am notified BEFORE the race, I will roll you over for next year…..but you gotta let me know before race day.    Or you lose. This weekend, I’ll venture over to the San Juan Solstice 50 [...]

So the new year is upon us.  For all those procrastinators…including myself, it’s now time to pick up where we left off in November. Yah, I ran Hellgate, but it was a “fun run”. I’ve take a minor break this past month, only running about 35 miles a week to recharge the engine.  It’s now time to start coaching myself to get back on the throttle and let er’ rip. My initial plan was to take a run at the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning, but I couldn’t get in Western States so I changed the plan………    My season ahead is looking pretty solid, with a few races I haven’t done before, including the San Juan Solstice 50 mile.  SJS is one of those races that always fell in front of Hardrock, so I avoided it.  This year, I plan on running SJS as a tune-up for a run at the Rocky Mountain Slam record.  [...]
