As 2019 comes to a close, this marks roughly a year and a half since I’ve last written in this format. It just so happens that I haven’t really ran much since that date either. I’m about 16 months removed from my last race and by most accounts am content to be where I’m at. […]Read more "2019. Wow."
Patience. Be Present. You Are Lucky. I wrote these three things down on a card I would carry through the Bigfoot 200. These phrases or words weren’t meant to be a reminder, just an affirmation of how my life has evolved over the last few years. Historically I have lacked patience. The last three years […]Read more "Bigfoot 200 – 2018"
The biggest thing that I’ve realized this summer is that I am truly fortunate to have found this sport. I’m lucky that I can travel long distances on foot. I’m lucky that I have the disposition and temperament that enjoys the beautiful things I can see on my own two feet. Despite the fact that […]Read more "The Bear 100 – 2017"
A few weeks ago Breein and I were stopped in Rawlins, WY. She had some work related things to do at various Wyoming outposts and I was along to provide moral support. Aside from the pep talks and inspirational speeches I gave, my purpose for being there was because we were headed to the Wind Rivers […]Read more "IMTUF 2016"
Running the Gorge Waterfalls 100k seemed like a good idea when this race opened up in the winter. Breein and I signed up the day it went on sale and the race (as expected) sold out rather quickly. I already knew I was running the Buffalo Run 100 and for some reason this race being […]Read more "Gorge Waterfalls 100k – 2016"
The 2016 version of the Buffalo Run 100 was a good one for me. Despite that, I don’t have any desire to do a play by play as to how my day unfolded. This is a race performance I’ll draw from a lot the next time I get into a prolonged calorie deficit. I’ve learned […]Read more "Antelope Island Buffalo Run 100 – 2016"
It was mile 40. The last 12 felt pretty horrible. I managed to keep grinding out a respectable pace, but I didn’t know how long that would last. My stomach was empty and with no real plan to keep adequate calories in, I was all but resigned to the fact that I may be suffering […]Read more "Man Does Not Live On Skittles Alone – Buffalo Run 50 Mile Race Report – 2013"
Let’s just get the disappointing news out of the way. I dropped from the Wasatch 100 at Big Mountain (mile 39). I won’t go into the details, but lets just say I couldn’t keep any food down. The heat obviously wreaked havoc on my stomach and I couldn’t figure out a way to keep the […]Read more "Wasatch 100 DNF – 2013"
About half way through the summer last year I swore I wasn’t running Red Hot in 2014. I was worn out from a long season of running and I wanted a long break over the winter to recharge. The more I thought about it, the more I reasoned that I wasn’t getting worn out from running […]Read more "Harry’s Moab Red Hot 55k Race Report – 2014 Edition"
