The next few weeks should be interesting.  I’ve got 54 holes to play, 200 miles to race, and 1500 miles to drive.  Should make for an entertaining 2-3 weeks coming up.  1st:  Drive to California, hook up with some friends and play some stick on what may be the most famous golf courses in the world, Pebble Beach, Spyglass, and Poppy Hills.  I’m really looking forward to this after recently shooting 75 twice….off the couch.  But it’s golf, enough said on that…… 2nd:  From the stellar Monterey Peninsula, I”ll head south to engage in a 100 mile party, called Coyote Two Moons 100.  This race is a tough one with 28,000′ of climbing to deal with.  Hopefully the weather gods will cooperate.  Last year we had 8″ of snow on the top of Topa Topa, the highest point….it made for an interesting run to say the least.  I’ve also been practicing [...]

By Default?  Yah, while hanging at the Way Too Cool 50k this past weekend, it was quite entertaining to watch the race from the other side of the fence.  I made the best of it and went for a 10 mile run and put myself out on the course to watch where no other spectators were.   At the Goat Hill aid station, mile 26.8, Max King, Geoff Roes, and Leor Pantilat were all together.  It was shaping up to be a great battle the last 4 miles.  I was sitting across a meadow where I could see a few minutes back.  Once I saw all three guys, I started running towards the finish line, thinking they would catch me.  They didn’t catch me, but I waited at the last aid station where there is only 1.3 miles to go to the finish.  Leor came in first, with a 3 minute gap [...]

No other run on the planet is quite like the Coyote Two Moon 100.  150 crazy mountain runners get the opportunity to run 100 miles through the beautiful mountains of Ojai, California.  Our pre-race runs at Pt. Mugu state park began the fun.  Pt. Mugu is a cool place, views of the ocean on prime singletrack….a pretty nice place to go for a run after 11 straight hours at the wheel. This years’ weather was typical for southern California…..rainy and snowing above about 4000′.  Yah, that’s right, my second 100 mile race in a few months in So. Cal in a snowstorm.  It rained and snowed most of the event, with the summit of Topa Topa catching about 5″ of new snow during the night of the race.   Crazy stuff, but this storm was a calm one, unlike the previous at the Chimera 100 where the winds topped 50 mph.  C2M was doable….and [...]
