One more off the couch win for mankind

April 8 2014, 10:14 am

Sometimes I wonder how I do it. I went into the Zion 100k with the intention of running strong to the finish.  I had no intentions of “racing” off the front.  It just happened.   With a total of about 130 miles on my legs since the Moab 55k on February 14th, I managed to Read More

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

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

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

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

Track meet coming soon, the Western States-Speedgoat Odds have arrived

June 20 2011, 2:00 pm

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

Speedgoat 50k almost full!

June 9 2011, 7:30 am

Only 3 spots remain for a chance to run the toughest 50k in town.  Only 11,693′ of vertical gain to entertain you.  Some snow, some rocks, some really ugly trail is all we need for a full day’s work.  Expect the course to have some snow, but don’t expect it to change because of it.  Many areas Read More

Miwok 100k coming Saturday!

May 3 2011, 3:11 pm

This week the Miwok 100k is set and primed to be fast, the field is stacked as usual.  I don’t think either Tony Krupicka or Geoff Roes will be running.  There names are on the list, but Tony hasn’t mentioned it as he normally would, and Geoff just ran a smooth 100 in Santa Barbara Read More

Dan Vega wins Antelope Island, but a goat came close….and look at the odds at the Sonoma Lake 50 mile!

March 27 2011, 7:47 am

I’d like to say I finished two 100 milers in 6 days, but I can’t say that as the C2M Hurricane threw that plan out the window…but it felt like 2 100s.  I have no official finish at C2M, so I’ll let that be.  My official finish at the Antelope Island Buffalo Run comes in Read More

Well, round #1 is over….

February 13 2011, 9:26 am

After running 100 miles on the flattest route ever, my body has come to realize 100 miles, really, is not that far.  But I already knew that.  Running a PR on 6 weeks of training certainly has me encouraged for the upcoming season.  There were only a few days training over the past 6 weeks Read More
