A little Hiatus to Disneyland!

August 11 2009, 12:47 pm

Tomorrow morning begins a 5 day backpack trip to the infamous Wind River Range in Wyoming.  No mountain range compares to this one for prime backpacking and fly fishing.  I’ll be eating lunkers in no time! After this week’s Jupiter Peak Steeplechase 16 miler, I came home with some neuritis in my left foot.  The Read More

He threw it down textbook style!  Went out hard, when it hurt-he sped up! 16:24 was the time.  Way to go Halomatic!  Carcinogen Chicken on me!  Anita Ortiz in her first 100 also put the hammer down, not far from a CR!  Way to go Anita, now she just has to smoke everyong at the Speedgoat Read More

Bighorn should be a sloppy mess!

A quick look at the Bighorn 100 this weekend: This will be my second 100 of the year.  Five weeks after a great win at the Massannutten 100 May 16th.  If all goes well, (and it should) I feel pretty confident that I’ll have a decent run on the muddy cow trails.  Odds on this one are Read More

Is it spring yet?

March 1 2009, 4:51 pm

I guess it’s time to start running more than 40 miles per week!  The snow is finally melting out here in the front range of SLC.  More vertical to be had, and actual dirt to run on.  Running on ice and snow is overrated. A few cool races are around the corner.  The Old Pueblo Read More

Off to the moon

January 31 2009, 3:51 am

I’m out for the weekend, headed to the moon to get on some dirt trails.  As the moon is only 4 hours drive, I thought it might be best to see what it feels like to get on some dirt….or slickrock.  When I return I”ll do some odds for the Pemberton 50k, and the Moab Read More
