Well Folks……..we have an issue

August 19 2008, 12:55 pm

My Anterior Tibialas is tweaking. It’s swollen and unrunnable right now. Needless to say, the record will remain in AT’s (Andrew Thompson) hands. My plan now is to pop vitamin P (Prednisone) for a few days and see what happens, along with ice baths a few times a day. I am not quitting yet, vitamin Read More

NO, not the olympics, those speedsters run in circles, I’ll be running the “Long Green Tunnel”. Less than 2 days away. we’re packing up the rig and making final day preperations, hoping the weather will cooperate….at least for the start. And if it doesn’t, we’ll wait till it does……just for the record. Marit Fischer and Read More

July 28 2008, 10:33 pm

The Speedgoat 50K wasa huge success this year…..yah we had a few more dropouts, a few injuries, but in Speedgoat Country it’s a common scene. The Wasatch Mountains are relentless and Saturday was no exception. Find the results on the Speedgoat 50k page, just click on the link! Nate McDowell and Anita Ortiz dominated the Read More

July 16 2008, 12:38 am

The USATF 100 Mile Trail Championship on the line! He kinda looks like Mr. Bill! And the odds are: Erik Skaden: 5-2. He was ready for Western and will likely be ready forthis one Jon Olsen: 7-2. Not far behind Erik, these two guys should battle it out. Ian Torrence: 12-1. Claims he’s not quite Read More

Now that Kyle is asleep…………….. Let’s sit back and watch Diana Finkel finish tough, and give Krissy’s record a shot! I don’t think she’ll get it by 3 freakin’ hours but she’s got a chance to take home the cake, unless Kyle already ate that too! Congrats Kyle, you are the man now! And after Read More

The Speedgoat 50K course is melting fast!

June 30 2008, 7:49 pm

26 days till post-time for the toughest 50K on earth!….maybe not, but it sounds good! This mornings run took me to the summit of Snowbird to scope out the Speedgoat 50k. It looks like a butt-slide is likely in Little Cloud Bowl for the final descent! It’ll bring back those childhood memories of you’re favorite Read More

Mother Nature “Strikes” again! Sitting here in No. Tahoe, it’s safe to say, it’s a smoker here, and wildfires suck, but life goes on. What will we do now? we’ll go running somewhere else. Perhaps the fire gods are telling me something… focus on the AT only. It’s a shame all those $300 entry fees Read More

Pacers or No PacersTHAT is the question!

June 11 2008, 3:14 pm

In this age of Ultrarunning, pacers play a large roll in motivating and assisting runners to finish the brutal 100 milerace. Is this really necessary? In France, pacers are not allowed, and the RD’s evendiscouragehaving a crew. The US is the opposite, why is that? Are the Europeans more purists? Are we weak in saying Read More

Preparation for the AT assaultis coming together, the RV is in the house (outside of the house) and the wrap is being designed. Training wise: Yah, I’ve been running every day, the real training will be after the WS track meet, where I’ll go hiking alot instead of running, it’ll be nice to slow Read More

April 29 2008, 9:18 pm

This is the last chance to gain entry into the Western States Track Meet. So how about we throw some odds for this years race: Mens Race: Dave Mackey 3-1. Mac Daddy doesn’t run too many ultras, but usually comes in ready to fly, perhaps he’s looking at the WS 100 in June? He said Read More
