The Wasatch 100 lottery gods looked upon me with kindness and favor yesterday, giving me another chance to run the sunny and steep ridges of the Utah's Wasatch Front. I've been itching to go back after my 2015 effort at the race ended early at mile 87 with a missed...read more
It’s completely dark out, with only a fading quarter moon to accompany my headlight as I run uphill. The temperature is cold, but very reasonable for a Wyoming December morning. I try to keep my cadence rhythmic as my shoes bite into the hard snow crunch crunch crunch...read more
My fall break from running and training is over, and the sun is setting on 2017. Lottery season is well underway and races all over the west are selling out in a week—or less. I wasn't as lucky this year with the Hardrock lottery, but fortunately there are so many...read more
