Umstead 100 - race report
This was my first 100 miler and I hit my "B" goal, finish in under 28 hours.   In summary, it was an extremely cold year for the race (temps dipped into the single digits at night) and there was a lot of carnage as a result.  I had the help of my family in ...

Last week was the final week before my taper to make sure I am healed up in time for the kick in the stomach that is otherwise referred to as the Eastern Divide 50k.  It was a solid 32 mile week (I only had time to run 3 days) and my long run left me feelin...

This was a scheduled rest week that turned out a little lighter than originally planned.  That is what happens when you have awesome newborn twins though.  I generally plan a down week every 2-3 weeks, depending on how I am feeling.  Although I take a lot o...

This was a good week.  My new plan involves 2 heart rate based workouts along with 2 other runs based on feel.  Tuesday will be an anaerobic day and Sunday will be a fat burner to hopefully help me run more efficiently during races.  It was a little odd run...

The week went as planned.  I got in 28 miles, which was needed since I decided (last minute) to gear up for the Eastern Divide 50k the end of June.  If I had my normal base, gearing up for a 50k wouldn't be tough but since I haven't ran over 20 miles at one...
