The Pony Express Trail is ON!

March 24 2010, 8:52 am

So much for running 100 miles at one pop!  It’s time to go big again….this time from Missouri to California.  It’s the 150th anniversary of the Pony Express Trail, so I’ll be teaming up with Red Bull to make it happen.  It’s all gonna start in mid September after I crew for my wife at the Read More

Leor Pantilat wins Way Too Cool……by default. Joelle Vaught takes the women’s title.

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.   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!

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

Drumroll please!

On Monday morning Ultrarunning Magazine will announce the “Ultrarunners of the Year”.  Who’s it gonna be?  All we know is that it’s a tough vote.  So many variables, so many races, so many different circumstances, so many different courses.  I could go on and on and on, but I won’t.  Tune in Monday morning after 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

Time to eat!

With the big turkey day upon us, think about running far today.  Coming next week is the North Face 50 odds!  This should definately be a hot race to follow.  Hopefully, I’ll have some connection in Cali to get me the results.  I’m working on that.  With $10,000 on the line for the winner, it’s sure Read More

I guess I’ll run another 100

November 18 2009, 11:16 am

Well, the plan was to run the North Face 50 in San Francisco.  Due to a weak webpage and updated runners list,  I didn’t get the invitation or money in, in time.  So I bagged it.  I don’t feel I am qualified to compete for the $$ anyway, so I decided I’d go run another Read More

The “Desert Halloween Party” up next

October 29 2009, 9:20 am

The Javelina Jundred happens this weekend.  A few fast guys out front should make this one to watch.  Will Jorge finally break my record?, or will Paul DeWitt and Josh Brimhall get the best of the fast starter….we’ll see.  Here’s my picks: Jorge Pacheco  3-1.  Jorge gets the nod because he’s the previous winner, but he’ll Read More

What’s Next?

The Bighorn 100 starts June 19th.  Am I recovered from Massannutten?  Absolutely!  I feel as though I didn’t even run in Virginia a week and a half ago……scary!  Why am I recovered already?…….because I’m a mutant?  or is it the multiple scoops of Ultragen I consume after every run.  I’ll call it the Ultragen.  Not Read More
