I still need to complete my GoPro race video from the Run Rabbit Run 50 mile in Steamboat Sprint, CO. I guess I am being lazy about it. I have the Farmdale 50 mile this weekend so I need to get back on track and post my race video this week. In the mean time I wanted … Continue reading »

GoPro Testing

I picked up a GoPro last this week. I am going to document each race this year with video.  Today was super windy and I am really impressed how well the GoPro eliminated any wind sounds.  That is always a big problem with shooting video outside.  The only odd sounds were when I was switching … Continue reading »

2014 Ultra Race Schedule

I have been thinking of what ultra to race in 2014.  To raise the bar this year I want to complete a 100k and maybe 100 miler.  The 100k has been on my mind for over a year now.  My lack to training in late 2012 cost me the chance to run a 100k in … Continue reading »

North Fork 50 Mile Race Report

I knew going into the North Fork 50 mile that I was biting off a lot. Living in Iowa and at about 1200 feet we just don’t have anything that I would consider an mountain. Also we have not had access to the trails this spring due to the rain. Add in the Colorado altitude … Continue reading »

The elusive 50 mile week

Since I started running and training for ultras in 2012 the hardest part has been consistently running high mileage weeks. The 50 mile week has become a target for me and somewhat of my nemesis to be honest. Looking back at my training history and excluding any race weeks, I only have two weeks that … Continue reading »
