Mountain Lakes 100 recap

I am now a week since the race. I am still having a hard time putting together the words. I’ve been in a writing slump all summer, I didn’t do a race recap of Titletown Ultra 8 hr, or Standhope Ultra 60K in Idaho. The first race I didn’t think there was much to writeContinue reading “Mountain Lakes 100 recap”

Run Across WI

Part I: The Why. One of the most asked questions over the past few days has been: “How did you choose to run across WI?” There isn’t a concrete answer for that, it really was as simple as, no one had done that before in the way I wanted and during the time of yearContinue reading “Run Across WI”

Vermont 2018 race recap

This post has taken longer to write than others. I feel as though I have told the story 100 times already. I feel this race also sort of flew under the radar, in a storytelling sort of way.

I met quite a few of those people out there. The weekContinue reading “Wasatch 100 recap”

Vermont 100 recap

What a ride. July 15-16 the Vermont 100 miler. Finishing in 23:41:47 earning the big buckle. A sub 24 hour finish was my B goal. Back up a bit. The previous weekend is when the whirlwind trip started. I first got up well before the sun and headed to a local race where I hadContinue reading “Vermont 100 recap”

#Birdstrike vs The Speed Project

As much as I try I will never be able to put into words the feeling and experience of the weekend. I agreed to this journey without hesitation and without much knowledge. Lesko asked if I would be in for “an awesome adventure with Oiselle,” or something along those lines. How do you say noContinue reading “#Birdstrike vs The Speed Project”
