The Ultra Experience

Here's to the adventures of my life which are usually ultra marathon trail running or backpacking but may include other trips, experiences, thoughts, opinions, or pretty much whatever I want. As co-founder of Altra Footwear my life and adventures seemingly revolve more around developing and promoting the best footwear in the world...and I love it!

Final 2010 Race Calender

Well I did not get in to Hardrock 100 this year (which is a good thing!) but I did draw out for Wasatch 100 like planned! In celebration of this, I ran from the Start to Fernwood and back last night. I am very excited about getting another chance at Wasatch. I finished my first and only attempt in 2007 with a time of 29:53.44. I struggled through 70 miles of serious blisters and hope to take a chunk of time off of that finish. With the Kahtoola race last week boosting my confidence and my new minimalist/barefoot approach on running, I hope to have the best year of running yet.

It looks like my race schedule will be the following:

Bonneville Shoreline Marathon- April 10th
Grand Canyon Double Crossing- April 17th
Timpanogos Trail Marathon- May 22nd
Squaw Peak 50- June 5th
Katcina Mosa 100k- August 6th
Wasatch 100- Sept 10th-11th
?Pony Express 100/50?- Oct

I would love to do more races but having prepaid for nearly all of these races it's about broken the bank. Ultra's are expensive! Still needing to fuel the addiction and the schedule looks solid.

I saw on Facebook that my friend Greg Vander Werff got in too. Looks like you'll be busy running this year. Try not to break the bank too much!
