Santa is on his way!

December 24 2009, 10:50 am

Hopefully he’ll have his laptop so he can sign up for the Speedgoat 50k.  Registration goes online  January 1st at   The race is limited to 200 runners.  This year the fastest nannie and billie will take home $500 bucks, along with a goat leg for the dog to stare at.  Expect a flyover map Read More

El Nino—1, Chimera—0, Karl—still 28!

December 14 2009, 7:41 am

If you haven’t already heard, this one was cancelled during mid-race.   Two aid stations were blown off the mountain by 40-50 mph winds, leaving no aid on the ridge for 20+ miles.  Even with aid, the right call was made.  It is rare in any sport to make the call during the event, but this Read More

One more 100……then I guess I’ll take a nap!

December 10 2009, 10:15 am

Off to the Chimera 100 this weekend.  Looks like it’ll be uncharacteristically muddy, but that’s good, cuz’ I like it when it’s ugly!  Report when I return on Tuesday. “100 miles is not that far”  

Steidl beats Roes at the NF 50!

December 5 2009, 2:23 pm

Ulli Steidl runs 6:33 and change, while Geoff capped off his “Runner of the Year” performance throwing down a 6:40.  Both these times are faster than last year, but let’s remember it was a slightly different route.  More to come from me, but follow and click on his twitter feed for the best up Read More

Time to eat!

With the big turkey day upon us, think about running far today.  Coming next week is the North Face 50 odds!  This should definately be a hot race to follow.  Hopefully, I’ll have some connection in Cali to get me the results.  I’m working on that.  With $10,000 on the line for the winner, it’s sure Read More

JFK 50 was a fast one!

I guess I’ll run another 100

November 18 2009, 11:16 am

Well, the plan was to run the North Face 50 in San Francisco.  Due to a weak webpage and updated runners list,  I didn’t get the invitation or money in, in time.  So I bagged it.  I don’t feel I am qualified to compete for the $$ anyway, so I decided I’d go run another Read More

Oh the Pinhoti Trail!

November 5 2009, 6:48 am

This weekend I’ll be at the Pinhoti Trail 100 down in Alabama.  Roch Horton are running for team Utah.  My wife Cheryl will be crewing, keeping us efficient throughout.  It should be a pretty good race with about 5 of us thinking about winning the thing.   I have some periformis issues, but hope for that Read More

The “Desert Halloween Party” up next

October 29 2009, 9:20 am

The Javelina Jundred happens this weekend.  A few fast guys out front should make this one to watch.  Will Jorge finally break my record?, or will Paul DeWitt and Josh Brimhall get the best of the fast starter….we’ll see.  Here’s my picks: Jorge Pacheco  3-1.  Jorge gets the nod because he’s the previous winner, but he’ll Read More

Is the season over yet?

October 20 2009, 2:55 pm

Of course not!  I’m just a slacker and haven’t posted anything in two weeks.  I guess running is taking over my life.  The snow has started to fall here in the Wasatch range.  Everything up high above 9000′ is now either buried or super icy, leaving me with lower (but still stellar) trails to run Read More
