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 last weekend.  So, that being said, the rest of the best are below: The men: 1.  Dave Mackey 3-2  He’s the record holder, and rarely loses at any race.  He just won American River a month ago and is likely in fine shape.  He knows the trails well here, so getting lost should not be an issue.  And, he”ll be in his Hoka Bondi B’s, I bet his legs won’t even hurt much when it’s over. 2.  Mike Wolfe 3-1  His fine showing at Way Too Cool proved he can run himself into shape quickly [...]

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 as the first loser.  I ran 16:07, only 6 days after 78 miles and 24k of vert in So Cal.  I think it’s pretty hard to complain about running this fast on super sore legs.  The soreness began about 200 yards from the start line.  I expected it.  The mental challenge was what I was  looking for, and I found it.  Dan Vega was clearly on his game as he was easily the fastest guy out there this weekend, each time I closed, he just pushed a bit harder and put some time on me.  [...]

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 that can’t seem to survive the lottery, including myself.  Killian Jornet certainly represents the fastest Euro, but many other European runners have a slim chance to get in WS and Hardrock, or don’t want to spend the cake to get here….I don’t blame them.  It’s expensive to travel 5000 or so miles. The list of runners in the lottery for Hardrock is far deeper than it’s ever been.  #1, #2, #4, and #7 in the US are all on the list for HR, but what’s the chance of them all getting in?  We’ll just say it’s pretty slim.  They’ll all race at WS if they don’t [...]
