Pacer – Why You Should Use One, Why You Should Be One

Pacer – Why You Should Use One, Why You Should Be One

I’ve been on both sides of the pacer experience, I finished my first 100 mile ultra trail run in sub 24 hours with the help of pacers (I couldn’t have done it without them) and recently paced a runner through 46 miles to help him be one of only 9 finishers in the incredibly difficult […]

Pine to Palm 100 – Sodium Enriched DNF

We flew into Medford late Thursday night and when we woke up Friday morning and started to drive around Ashland we were treated to one of the coolest little towns I have ever visited. Having never been to Oregon I wasn’t sure what to expect but what we found was a beautiful countryside with fall […]

Pacing and Crewing – Leadville 100

Pacing and Crewing – Leadville 100

In the middle of August I traveled to Leadville, Colorado at the request of a friend who planned to run his first 100-mile race. While Tucson and most other places this time of year are in the throes of heat and humidity, Leadville’s temperature rarely gets above 70 and quite often drops below 40 degrees […]

2012 Lean Horse 100

The First Half There is a common saying in the running world that, “You know you’ve done your taper well when you’re itching to run on race day.” Is that really such a bad thing?! All I can say is that “the itch” took over for the first 25 miles. It was soooo hard to […]

Why I Run the 100-Miler

Last weekend, my wife Trish asked me the question, “Why do you run the 100-miler?” and then listened intently to my answer. At first I wasn’t sure how to begin. I have mulled this question over in my head many times in the past so I cleared my thoughts for a moment and this is […]

San Diego 100 – Race Report

San Diego 100 – Race Report

Some people run 5K’s, 10K’s, half marathons and marathons but for some reason unbeknown to me I have decided to run hundred mile races. I often find myself daydreaming during my long runs and I can’t ever seem to come up with a reason why I shouldn’t run hundreds except during the races themselves. I […]

The Zane Grey 50 Mile Endurance Run 2012 Video

Watching an ultra unfold is an interesting and entirely different experience than running one.  Seeing the nervous looks on runner’s faces, the smiles on friends faces in the early stages then the strains of fatigue in the latter ones.  It’s nothing short of a journey and an experience unlike many others. As a continuation of […]
