The most competitive Wasatch 100 ever!

September 6 2009, 7:22 am

This year’s Wasatch 100 is lined up to be a burner.  Not only will it be warm, ( at this point ) but the heat, dust, and dry overgrown conditions should make it an interesting race to watch, and more interesting to run up front.  It’s a tough one to pick. The way I look at it there Read More

The Leadville 100

August 19 2009, 12:58 pm

Timmy Parr takes the dance at 17:27!  A fast start weeded out the field, but a few guys hung tough to the end.  Nick Lewis from Memphis, TN placed a strong second in his first 100 mile adventure and paid 13-1. He plans on spending his winnings on prep for next year.  I had the Read More

A little Hiatus to Disneyland!

Tomorrow morning begins a 5 day backpack trip to the infamous Wind River Range in Wyoming.  No mountain range compares to this one for prime backpacking and fly fishing.  I’ll be eating lunkers in no time! After this week’s Jupiter Peak Steeplechase 16 miler, I came home with some neuritis in my left foot.  The Read More

A race shorter than 100 miles?

August 6 2009, 7:27 pm

This coming Saturday, I’ll test myself at the Jupiter Peak Steeplechase in Park City, Utah.  This race is a whopping 16 miles with about 4000′ of elevation gain on prime PC singletrack.  I’ve run it before in a little over 2 hours.  I don’t plan on racing real hard, just trying to put in a Read More

White River 50 on tap this weekend……

July 25 2009, 6:41 am

Here’s my picks.  It’s off the cuff and only done in a few minutes cuz’ I’m off to dig a ditch and do trailwork for the Wasatch 100.  1.   Anton looked good on the treadmill at the OR show, he’s had 6 weeks of healthy running and is probably hungry to bust one out. 2.  Read More

Bighorn should be a sloppy mess!

A quick look at the Bighorn 100 this weekend: This will be my second 100 of the year.  Five weeks after a great win at the Massannutten 100 May 16th.  If all goes well, (and it should) I feel pretty confident that I’ll have a decent run on the muddy cow trails.  Odds on this one are Read More

An old legend back on track!

When I started Ultrarunning, I had two guys I wanted to race…..One was Eric Clifton.  Eric was so fast I had to go test myself against him to see if I had what it takes to succeed in this silly sport.  I beat Eric the first time I raced against him at the Crown King Read More

What’s Next?

May 28 2009, 10:33 am

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
