Here Comes The Sun (do do do do)
There are two things that bug the bejesus out of me while trail running. The first is seeing trash on the trail (or anywhere for that matter). Ask my kids what their new punishment is. The other is as follows: While finishing the last 20 miles of my race, I...

Wildflower Race Recap OR How to not end up walking at the end of an ultramarathon
So I ran Wildflower this last weekend and I told myself it’s just a 50k and it’ll be over before I know it. But the other part of my brain told me that since it’s shorter, I’ll have to run faster. And I hate running fast. And before you think that, the term...

Brazos Bend 50- April 2017

Why?
Since 2011, I have raced in several 100-mile races. And with the exception of one that has foiled me twice, I feel I have done fairly well while racing. For a few reasons, I did not compete in this year's Rocky Raccoon 100. It was a very hard decision to ma...

How Can I Possibly
Train for an Ultra if I Have a Family? Spending time with my family has never detracted from my
running. Or is it that even with the few thousand miles I log each year,
running has never stolen my family time? However you put it, my famil...

Franklin Mountains Trail Run
Franklin Mountains Trail Run November 2015 From the peak of North Franklin Mountains I’ve only run one mountain race before and I was so excited when the planets aligned and I found a way to get out to El Paso to run a mountain 50k in Texas (of all places)....

Racing Season is just 2 WEEKS AWAY!
The start of racing season is quickly approaching in the
Great State of Texas. In years past, it wasn’t until the end of October. But

Habanero Hundred
The Race Sauron Would've Dropped The Race Where You Might Consider
Eating a Few Habanero Peppers Instead of Running a 7.2-Mile Lap Call the race whatever you like, but
it was hot. And humid. And rocky. And full of biting flies. And hot and humid
too. I don'...

Brazos Bend 50 25 April 2015 I Guess I Am Human
After All I get excited for every race that I do. They’re like
opening presents; you can’t wait to open them, but at the same time, you don’t
know if you’re gonna like what you see once they’re open. This race...

Because in Texas, Four 100-milers Just isn’t Enough for a Grand Slam (pt 3)
From October 2014 through February 2015 (3 ½ months), I
raced 512 miles in just over 100 hours. In addition to that, I ran 670 ‘training’
miles between races. I thought I’d interview myself and let you know a bit
about the races, why I did it, how I got rea...
