The Bighorn 100 starts June 19th.  Am I recovered from Massannutten?  Absolutely!  I feel as though I didn’t even run in Virginia a week and a half ago……scary!  Why am I recovered already?…….because I’m a mutant?  or is it the multiple scoops of Ultragen I consume after every run.  I’ll call it the Ultragen.  Not to mention I have a great coach…..myself!  Last Friday I was summoned to fill in for Missy Berkel at the Pocatello 50 mile relay.  I was called on my way up to Pocatello where my wife Cheryl was also participating in the 50 mile relay division.  So I said why not?,  What’s another 17 miler?  I ran it with intentions of just having fun. It certainly was fun.  Cruising along on prime Pocatello singletrack comfortably at 10.5 mph had me feeling pretty good.  I won the first leg by 5 minutes.   Recovered from Massannutten……I think so!  Bighorn [...]

Stay tuned for Monday’s post:  The Miwok odds are coming, and this year’s race is a barn burner for the last 3, Western States Track Meet qualifiers! Watch the Boston Marathon LIVE right now!  (it’s 8:32 MST)  at this website: http://www.universalsports.com/mediaPlayer/media.dbml?CLIP_ID=110201&_MODE_=EVENT&db_oem_id=23000 Ryan Hall is pushing the pace, the 10k split was 29:30.  I can run 5 miles at that pace….maybe! After shoveling almost 700″ of the “greatest snow on earth”, my tenure at Sugarplum condos and townhouses ended yesterday, (these condos are sweet and would be a great deal if you have a group running the Speedgoat 50k!).  Now I can start preparing for 7 100 mile mountain races.  It all starts with Massannutten on May 16th.  First I’ll hammer out the Bonneville Shoreline Marathon as a tune-up on April 25th.  While 165″ of snow sits on the ground at Snowbird and Alta, I’ll have to run at a lower elevation, [...]

Ahhhhh….Way too dry!  Full results here:   Let it rain, snow, or just be freezin’,  I need some type of advantage for this one! And the Odds are: First off, this is a tough one.  The results of previous years was coming up moot, so I’m rolling with what I know!  Also, this year’s course is slightly longer to make a perfect 50k, so all the times I refer to in this list are as if they would be run on the old course, (to make it a bit easier for me). Erik Skaden  4-1.  He’s no rookie here, and it’s about time he won something big.  He knows the course well with his Western experience and local knowledge.  It’ll all have to click. Eric Grossman  5-1.  He always seems to run fast, every race, even without competition.  This race has the comp and should push him even faster. Paul Dewitt  6-1.  He’s got [...]
