After weeks of basically autumn weather, we finally got a big shot of snow last night in the Wasatch. Little Cottonwood Canyon took in 42″ of snow from this storm, so people around these parts are pretty happy.
Less than two weeks left until the Rocky Raccoon 100 for me, which is my goal race for [...]
After completing a King’s Peak adventure run on Saturday, my thoughts turned to the upcoming Labor Day holiday.
I had very much enjoyed the challenge of running at high elevation while summiting King’s Peak and I began to wonder what options might exist for high-elevation running in the Wasatch range. I knew that Mount Nebo (11,928′) [...]
Like many other ultrarunners, I suffer quite a bit from GI distress during very long efforts. Usually it hits me around mile 50 but it’s been known to strike as early as the first dozen miles.
Though I’m getting much closer to figuring this out, I’m always on the lookout for new information. That’s why [...]

As a trail runner, I always wish I could be, well, on the trail.
Since I’m not an elite runner by any means and I don’t have sponsorships that allow me to train all day, I have an office job that keeps me occupied pretty much all day. I’m generally in the office from 10 [...]
Temps in Utah have dipped below 40F and the snow is starting to fly.
Snow comes to Alta
That means it’s time to head indoors and hit the treadmill.
A fellow Wasatch trail runner, Davy Crockett, describes “10-10-10″ workouts in his 2008 race report for the Rocky Raccoon 100.
Since I’m preparing to run the 50 miler at Rocky [...]
