About time eh?  I’ve been a little off the radar lately. I’m sure we’ll be yacking about “Ultrarunner of the Year” soon.   This week’s NF50 didn’t have too much of an affect on the voting.   I took a quick jaunt down to Lake Elsinore, CA and ran the Chimera 100 on November 17th.  Great course, great race and Fabrice Hardel was on fire, winning it in 16:52. I came staggering in, in 2nd at 17:30.   Not gonna win 4 this year.  :-)   3 ain’t bad though….  Onward Speedgoat 50k 2013 will be held on July 27th, at 6:30am. Registration will go online on January 1st at 7am MST.  I wouldn’t expect it to fill up instantly, that would amaze me, but keep an eye on it, don’t wait till May this time.  We are also proud to announce we are once again in partnership with the […]


Well, my 4 week roadtrip is over.  I put 6000 miles on my Tacoma.  It seemed to blow by even faster than my fastest 100 miler.  So….what do I do now?  Shall I run a local race?  chill out and wait for the snow to fly?, or look into another 100 miler to try and win 4 this year?  My body at the moment says “no”.  My mind says “yes”.  I should rest right?  I”m not really sure I know what “rest” means.  I never overtrain, so it’s fair to say I rest plenty.  I am gonna miss the Pinhoti 100.  It’ll be interesting to see how a stronger field competes at that one and how low the record can go. It can go quite a bit lower than my 16:42.  I slowed down alot when I had a 2 hour lead last year.   Needless to say, it’ll likely […]


I just can’t get enough eh?  Tomorrow evening at 6pm,  I”m firing up the Hokas again and running another classic 100 miler in Virginia, the Grindstone 100 near Swoope.  Clark Zealand puts on a great race and a tough course in central Virginia. I’ve been here before, in 2009….won it and have the course record of 18:46.   It’s always fun defending! Looks like Mr. Jason Schlarb wants some more abuse and this time I bet he gets it done in fashion.  His run at Steamboat 3 weeks ago came up a bit short due to a wrong turn and I’ve been informed that he is “hungry”. I think he should eat something.  Although one would think with my last performance at Steamboat, that I am the man to beat? I”m not so sure about that. Jason is faster no doubt, so if he plays his cards right, doesn’t stumble […]
