Miwok 100k coming Saturday!

May 3 2011, 3:11 pm

This week the Miwok 100k is set and primed to be fast, the field is stacked as usual.  I don’t think either Tony Krupicka or Geoff Roes will be running.  There names are on the list, but Tony hasn’t mentioned it as he normally would, and Geoff just ran a smooth 100 in Santa Barbara Read More

Dan Vega wins Antelope Island, but a goat came close….and look at the odds at the Sonoma Lake 50 mile!

March 27 2011, 7:47 am

I’d like to say I finished two 100 milers in 6 days, but I can’t say that as the C2M Hurricane threw that plan out the window…but it felt like 2 100s.  I have no official finish at C2M, so I’ll let that be.  My official finish at the Antelope Island Buffalo Run comes in Read More

UTMB in 2011… we have a “World Championship”!

January 19 2011, 10:56 am

Yah, there’s a few missing from around the world, but look here and see how many fast americans are making the jump over the pond!  UTMB is surely gonna be the race of the year.  WS has lots of fast guys and gals too, but lacks many European runners, and a few fast US runners Read More

The final showdown in Marin! The North Face 50

November 30 2010, 8:08 am

See what a little cash purse brings……. I’ve decided not to do “odds”, but to rather just make my picks for this year’s North Face 50.  With the worldwide talent, it’s gonna be a tough one.  I had some help with names from Bryon Powell at irunfar.  I let him do all the research, I’ll Read More

Tour Du Mont Blanc…..The Euro Superbowl!

August 15 2010, 8:58 am

And now we’re off to Italy for the Skyrunning Championships.  A 42k run with 4000 meters of climb, yah, that’s bigger than the Speedgoat race.  The UTMB race was cancelled due to inclement weather and a possible landslide.  Pretty disappointing, but a reasonable decision for the race committee to make.  We’ll report back with more Read More

Western States…Speedgoat Odds 2010

June 18 2010, 10:08 am

No doubt this will be the toughest “odds” I’ve ever done.  Picking the winners of this great race is certainly gambling.  The heat plays a huge factor.  A few WS rookies up front stand out as big overall favorites, but it’s a long way from Squaw to Auburn, and anything can happen. Some of the Read More

It’s been a slow start to 2010!

January 30 2010, 8:28 am

For me that is!  Performances continue to be stellar! My 20 day hiatus from running in December had done me good!  My legs turned fresh again, and I was ready to roll.  I started back up and in two weeks, I was up to speed, feeling good and ready to have a decent run at Read More

I’m still shaking my head!

January 17 2010, 2:20 pm

It appears as though the HURT 100 mile record has gone down AGAIN.   Gary Robbins and Tracy Garneau appear to have both broken previous records.  Gary by just 16 minutes, Tracy by alot more than that.  What is this world coming too?   Or am I just getting old?   20:12 for Gary, 24:06 for Tracy.  Nuts!  Another Read More

The final big dance of 2009…..The North Face 50 odds!

December 2 2009, 9:01 am

First off, this is a tough one.  There are so many solid runners in this race, it could go to any of the top 10 I have listed below.   I like to think experience will play a role in who takes home the cake! The men: Ulli Stiedl 5-2.   No doubt  Ulli is the fastest in Read More

Records get ruined at the Wasatch 100!!!

September 13 2009, 8:26 am

All predictions aside, I think I nailed this one! Geoff Roes and Betsy Nye both came out victorious in the end.  I wasn’t kidding when I said it was gonna be a burner! While hanging out last weekend with Hal and Geoff talking about this year’s race, the three of us knew it would probably take Read More
