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 […]


With a fat carrot for the winner of this year’s innaugural “Run Rabbit Run 100“, we would assume the field would be deep with talent.  Yup, it’s got talent.  No doubt the winning time will be swift, and it’ll be competitive up front all the way around the mountain town of Steamboat, Colorado. I’ve been around almost all of the course now, and I’ll say that it’s gonna be pretty fast.   Most of the trails are very runner friendly, actually “biker” friendly.  This only means one thing….they are (in general) not that steep. The climbs are long and gradual,the downhills are the same.  It’s a runners course….a good route for lots of carnage and a few super fast times.   I really feel it’s a bit of a shame more US runners aren’t here for this first year race. With $10,000 bucks going to the winner, and 5 -deep […]


Well, it’s been forever again that I haven’t posted anything about anything.   I’ve been a busy boy training for the Steamboat 100 on September 14th.  We’ll get to that big money dance next week after Wasatch.   The Wasatch 100, one of the greatest 100 mile routes on earth, is once again….not a real competitive field up front.   As usual, there are a few guys that can run sub 21, and one guy I think will run sub 20.   Look for Bronco Billy to be that sub 20 guy.  On the women’s side of things, this is the year of Sarah Evans.  Sarah….you’ve been killing it all year, and lets see you put some icing on that skull!   I’ll have to say, I’ll miss running this year, I’ve been running around Katherines Pass alot this past month, but the Steamboat 100 having  a $40,000 prize purse, […]
