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

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

Time to Grind it out!

October 1 2009, 4:07 pm

I have to be brief, I only have 30 minutes of time to use this internet, or I’m chumped 10 bucks an hour for usage…:-) Check out the seedings for this year’s Grindstone 100, brought to you by eco-xsports! Here’s the link for seeds, also you can watch it live here: Looks like I’m on Read More

Time for another adventure!

September 20 2009, 7:40 am

Something different sits on the horizon for a few lucky souls interested in a quick get-a-way to Disneyland!  No, not the Disneyland our kids love, the Disneyland for Ultrarunners.  A quick 5 day excursion to southern Utah to play in the sand and go on the most epic of runs, all with the luxury of Read More
