This year it’s flooded, but not with H2O.

The Lake Sonoma 50 mile will easily be the most competitive “early season” 50 mile.  The field is stacked deep.  John Medinger over at Ultrarunning Mag has assembled a stout list of trail runners, racing for some fine brew at the finish line.   It’s sure to be nuts up front.  A peleton may even Read More

Antelopes, Buffalo, and a big ole’ herd.

March 21 2012, 4:18 pm

This weekend, well Friday (cuz’ we’re in Utah) I’ll be running the Antelope Island 100 mile.  This will be my second 100 this year. I’m not really sure what to expect, but feel pretty good physically to run around 15 hours.  That, of course, is if all goes well.  I’ve had off and on battles Read More

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

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

Well, round #1 is over….

February 13 2011, 9:26 am

After running 100 miles on the flattest route ever, my body has come to realize 100 miles, really, is not that far.  But I already knew that.  Running a PR on 6 weeks of training certainly has me encouraged for the upcoming season.  There were only a few days training over the past 6 weeks 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

Time to start thinking about training?

December 29 2010, 7:24 am

So the new year is upon us.  For all those procrastinators…including myself, it’s now time to pick up where we left off in November. Yah, I ran Hellgate, but it was a “fun run”. I’ve take a minor break this past month, only running about 35 miles a week to recharge the engine.  It’s now time to Read More

Speedgoat 50k set for July 30, 2011!!

Time to start thinking about suffering again!  Registration will open on January 1st at 7am MST, at Ultrasignup.  Entries will be limited to 250 runners, up 50 from last year.  Some decent prize money, and a “bonus” for a record, is on tap this year again.  The course will remain the same as last year.  I Read More

Kevin Schilling and Keri Nelson take the Goat Leg!

August 1 2010, 12:55 pm

We had one glitch this year… things happen where a few lead runners took a wrong turn at Sinners Pass.  While the wrong turn was made, the distance is considered a wash as the route they took was .4 miles further than the loop around Mary Ellen Gulch.   There were roughly 6 runners that did Read More

Broken…Bruised…Battered, but not beaten yet…

June 7 2010, 12:37 pm

Let me explain:  first, I’ll say “battered” should be “broken”, cuz my shoulder is broken now too.   See you all at Hardrock! The last 6 weeks have been tough.  Crashing backwards climbing over a dead tree started it all at Zane Grey.  We all know I broke my arm there.  The status on that Read More
