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, [...]

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 just make the picks.  I haven’t seen a good women’s list, so it’s tough for me to “guess” what’ll happen there.  Although I’m sure it’ll be tight for the 10 grand!   I’ll post if I find the correct list.   Bryon?   help?  So here it goes: 1.  Anton Krupicka.  Healthy Tony=very fast!  Unfortunately for all of us, Tony won’t be running. 2. Geoff Roes.  Must stay close to Tony, and he will, but his best distance is 100 miles. The kicker here is that he and Tony are pretty much running for “Ultrarunner of the Year” [...]

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 [...]
