Sean O'Brien 100k
Jeff Pace, Tiffany Trevers, and Bull Dozier at Quicksilver I was apprehensive about running a challenging 100k just 2 weeks after running 200+ miles at Icarus Florida Ultrafest. In the end this turned out to be an advantage. Jeff Pace, Jeff Clowers, Tiffany...
Back in the 1970s and 1980s marathons were the big thing. Then 100 milers sprung up until there were 115+ in the United States alone. Suddenly 200 milers have exploded onto the scene, with the Grand Slam of 200s having its inaugural year in 2015. I'm going to run all of them that I possibly can ...

Getting Ready for Icarus
I'm terrified of Icarus Florida Ultrafest . I signed up for this race mainly to pad my stats (more 200s). The shin muscle injury from ATY is not fully healed, but I've been able to run up to 10 miles without pain so I decided the trip is a go. I'm 100% cert...
My wife and I ran our first 200 mile races in September 2014. That's 40 miles for each of our 5 children. We are so fortunate to have 5 wonderful kids in our family. Four of them were foster children, but now they are officially adopted and have been part of our family for about 3 years.

The Mental Hurdles of 200 Miles
[This post is copied directly from my Facebook wall]   Now that I've done 200 miles at both extremes - mountainous and pancake flat, I've learned a little something about what it takes to conquer the mental hurdles of such a distance. As I kept telling  Tom...

(SH!!!) It Just Got Real
Don't tell anyone. I just signed up for a bunch of 200 milers in 2015. Exactly  half  of the total I want to do. Registration for 4 of them hasn't opened yet, and I need to find a 10th somewhere. I'm still looking for the right charity to represent. One of ...

Stories from Across the Years 2014/15
Zombies In these multi-day events, a normal person passing by might think the world has been taken over by the undead. There are a bunch of people with eyes half closed ambling around in wavy paths, and a few folks running away from them. Some of us are imm...

Advice For Running Tahoe 200
Here's my sage advice for successfully completing the Tahoe 200 Mile Endurance Run: Be the first one up the first hill at Homewood. Everyone else will lose hope and go really slow from then on. Run as fast you can on the Rubicon Jeep Trail. You're less like...

Ups and Downs on a Flat Course
I don't know anyone who has ever run 50 or more miles without having some highs and lows. Of course I had my share at ATY (Across the Years) 72-hour. I loved the cold weather and was disappointed that I missed the snow on the first night. My stomach did gre...

New Territory
Hairy ultrarunner? There are some pretty exciting things happening in ultrarunning right now.  In 2014 race director Candice Burt created the first ever single-lap 200 mile foot race in the western hemisphere, the Tahoe 200 Mile Endurance Run .  Now with th...
