It has been quite some time now, since I’ve done any sort of race predictions/odds.   It is about time I step up and take a crack at “guessing” who will take home the $10,000 at this ridiculously stacked race.    Both the men’s and women’s field should be close all the way back to Ft. Barry in the Marin Headlands on Dec 7.  So….it’s off to the races for me as I hope to NOT get chicked once again.  Last time Anna got me, this time….we shall see.  So here it goes,  Ladies first: 1.  Emelie Forsberg  3-2.  Emelie has proven her dominance at distances up to 100k.  Her win at UROC showed she could hang long enough.  As long as she has still been running and not skiing entirely, I think she’ll win by 10 minutes, chick me, and go sub 7. 2.  Stephanie Howe  3-1.  Why not [...]

Check it out folks, the Wings for Life World Run is coming in May.  What is this?  Think about a race that happens globally in 38 locations on 6 continents!  Everyone starts at the same time. Some at 7am, some at 10pm all around the world.  The real catch is the “catcher car”.  The gun goes off, the “catcher car” gives us a half hour head start.  Once the car catches you…you’re out. Who wins?  Spinal Cord Research.  100% of proceeds go directly to Spinal Cord Research.  Join me in Denver on May 4 at 4am.  See how long you last! How about that two posts in two weeks from Speedgoat Karl.   Check out my Speedgoat odds, coming on Monday morning.  The race:  The North Face 50 on December 7th.  I’ll be handicapping the top 20 men and women.  The field is super stacked and competitive for the $10,000 [...]

Almost 3 weeks ago, I played in the Speedgolf World Championships.  Speedgolf? I was introduced to Speedgolf about 8 months ago from Tim Scott, the executive director of Speedgolf International.  Apparently he found out that I used to play some pretty good stick.   After hearing that Bernard Lagat and Nick Willis were playing, I had to give it a shot.  Who does this, right? The event was held at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, just south of Coos Bay, Oregon.  This is one of the nicest golf resorts in the U.S.  At $250 a greens fee, I figured my $250 entry fee would be just fine, with two practice rounds, and two tournament rounds.   It all equaled out in the end to about 4 ½ hours of golf, the standard time for an 18 hole round.   The tournament rules are simple,  it’s golf, be honest.  No mulligans for you.  Scoring [...]
