Running around the world of course right?  Well, not neccessarily.  I”ve been a busy boy, trying to keep up with life. Often it’s overrated to think I can’t even put a lousy blog post, but such is life.  Priorities are in other areas right now.  But here I am, writing about what has gone on the past 5 months….which will be kinda brief.  After running the Bandera 100k in January, the Moab Red Hot 50k in February, Winning my 35th 100 at Antelope Island in March, then enjoying the Sonoma 50 mile track meet on April 13th, I”ve dropped off the radar.   I’ve had an issue after Sonoma, at mile 42, I was churning along about to run around 7 hours, which for me, on that course was pretty textbook.  I knew I wasn’t gonna compete with the front of the pack, so why bother. My goal was to [...]

It’s been a pretty interesting 7 weeks.  I ran more miles at the Bandera 100k this weekend than I’ve accumulated over the past 7 weeks.  Hence, the “macro taper”.  My goal after running the Chimera 100 mile was to train well, and do well at Bandera.  Well, all solid training took a backseat on a 15 miler on Antelope Island on December 1.  I was running along and within a minute or two, my left hamstring started to “hurt”.  I walked it in, the final 5 miles.  Ok, now what?  As I always do,  I went to see my doctor, Russ Toronto.  He is the man.  I  was diagnosed with an “inflamed peroneal nerve”.  If you don’t know what or where this is….it is where the sciatic nerve splits in the back of the hamstring about 3″ above the back of the knee.  It’s not pleasant, it doesnt’ allow extension [...]

About time eh?  I’ve been a little off the radar lately. I’m sure we’ll be yacking about “Ultrarunner of the Year” soon.   This week’s NF50 didn’t have too much of an affect on the voting.   I took a quick jaunt down to Lake Elsinore, CA and ran the Chimera 100 on November 17th.  Great course, great race and Fabrice Hardel was on fire, winning it in 16:52. I came staggering in, in 2nd at 17:30.   Not gonna win 4 this year.  :-)   3 ain’t bad though….  Onward Speedgoat 50k 2013 will be held on July 27th, at 6:30am. Registration will go online on January 1st at 7am MST.  I wouldn’t expect it to fill up instantly, that would amaze me, but keep an eye on it, don’t wait till May this time.  We are also proud to announce we are once again in partnership with the [...]
