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 Read More

147″ and counting down…..I hope!

June 14 2011, 3:26 pm

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 Read More

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 Read More

The Bighorn 100 starts June 19th.  Am I recovered from Massannutten?  Absolutely!  I feel as though I didn’t even run in Virginia a week and a half ago……scary!  Why am I recovered already?…….because I’m a mutant?  or is it the multiple scoops of Ultragen I consume after every run.  I’ll call it the Ultragen.  Not Read More

OK, so I have been pretty much of a slacker in terms of posting info about anything……..why? In simple terms:  Alta, Utah has recieved a whopping 170″ of snow since March 22…..are you kidding you say?  No, not kidding, check out and click on snow reports to see actual daily snowfall.  Needless to say, Read More

This week Jim Skaggs will host the Antelope Island Buffalo Run.  This course takes place on Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake.  I’ll be working the “Lower Frary” aid station along with Larry Mangum.  There are nearly 500 runners registered in the 3 races….50 mile, 50k and 25k.  Looks like the buffalos will be Read More
