It’s been a while since I’ve done some odds on a race, but since I’m going and the field is fairly thick up front, we’ll take a crack at this one. I know most in the field as friends, so it’ll be easy right? What I know so far. Ian Sharman, 12:44 Tony K, 13:16 Hal Koerner, 13:27 Me…14:27 Bill Fanselow was coming, he’s done now, probably around 15:30 or less. Mike Wolfe was coming too, around 16 ish. Liza Howard took the women’s record down to 15:33. Jurek Dropped, Zach Dropped ( I think, but not sure) That’s all I got now, full results will come later. The Men: 1. Anton Krupicka 2-1. It wouldn’t be right to put Anton anywhere else. Apparently he’s been running strong, has run here before around 13:30. That’s enough for me to give him the nod. 100 mile is not his “best” distance, [...]

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 info as it comes to me. Well, I’m off to Chamonix in about 2 hours….10 hours of flying, for 20 hours of running thru the most beautiful race course on earth. 2500 runners from around the world, and a highly competitive race. This year the US has 4 guys that could win it. Me being one of them on paper, although I don’t consider myself a contender for the cowbell. I won’t do odds because there are too many European runners I don’t know. The guys I do know are listed below and my two [...]
That’s 165.70 in miles! The Jerker finally has rebounded taking “Fat Boy’s” american 24 hour record down, and Rae Clark’s “absolute american record”…whatever that means. ! We’ve been waiting for Scott to do something big….well, he did something big! Hell of a run Scott! Congrats on an incredible effort! Maybe we’ll see you back at UTMB so we can all redeem ourselves there too. I think he’s pretty psyched…well deserved my man!
