2011 coming soon!

January 7 2011, 8:04 am

Well, my plans for 2011 are finally shaping up, I’ve plunked down all the cash I have.  Hopefully I won’t break my arm climbing over some dead tree again. The lineup: 1.  Rocky Raccoon 100:  I’ve never run this one before, so I thought since it’s 100 miles, I’ll go see what kind of shape Read More

Time to start thinking about training?

December 29 2010, 7:24 am

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

Time to start thinking about suffering again!  Registration will open on January 1st at 7am MST, at Ultrasignup.  Entries will be limited to 250 runners, up 50 from last year.  Some decent prize money, and a “bonus” for a record, is on tap this year again.  The course will remain the same as last year.  I Read More

Kevin Schilling and Keri Nelson take the Goat Leg!

August 1 2010, 12:55 pm

We had one glitch this year… things happen where a few lead runners took a wrong turn at Sinners Pass.  While the wrong turn was made, the distance is considered a wash as the route they took was .4 miles further than the loop around Mary Ellen Gulch.   There were roughly 6 runners that did Read More

Jemez 50 Mile… run?

May 18 2010, 10:49 am

Hard to say what’s gonna happen this weekend in regards to me running the Jemez 50 mile.  I’ve been officially cleared to run if I want…that’s pretty cool only 4 weeks after a broken wing at Zane Grey.  Will I “race”?  No, not likely, the risk factor is still there if I crash….I tend to Read More

Last chance for the big dance

April 29 2010, 2:08 pm

Miwok 100K happens Saturday, the field is “pretty solid”. Here’s my picks: THE MEN 1. Anton Krupicka 5-2.  We all know if he has no injury issues, he should be gone daddy gone.  He’s been training hard, comes from 8000′ ish and should be able to challenge Mac Daddy’s record if has his day in the sun. 2.  Read More

The Pony Express Trail is ON!

March 24 2010, 8:52 am

So much for running 100 miles at one pop!  It’s time to go big again….this time from Missouri to California.  It’s the 150th anniversary of the Pony Express Trail, so I’ll be teaming up with Red Bull to make it happen.  It’s all gonna start in mid September after I crew for my wife at the Read More

Leor Pantilat wins Way Too Cool……by default. Joelle Vaught takes the women’s title.

March 15 2010, 10:50 am

By Default?  Yah, while hanging at the Way Too Cool 50k this past weekend, it was quite entertaining to watch the race from the other side of the fence.  I made the best of it and went for a 10 mile run and put myself out on the course to watch where no other spectators were.   Read More

It’s been a slow start to 2010!

January 30 2010, 8:28 am

For me that is!  Performances continue to be stellar! My 20 day hiatus from running in December had done me good!  My legs turned fresh again, and I was ready to roll.  I started back up and in two weeks, I was up to speed, feeling good and ready to have a decent run at Read More
