The Ultra Experience

Here's to the adventures of my life which are usually ultra marathon trail running or fly fishing 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!

2012 Plans

My 2012 plans are slowly coming together despite my hectic schedule. Its looking like it will be a solid year of epic running. Here's the plan thus far:

April- Boston Marathon, MA
June- Squaw Peak 50, UT
July- Resurrection Pass 50, AK
August- Cascade Crest 100, WA
Sept- ?110k in Japan!? (if it works out). If not, Bear 100, UT.
Nov- Antelope Island 100k, UT
Dec- ?Australia...Chile...!?

We will see how it all turns out with my work schedule and a new baby due in June. The first 4 races are pretty much set in stone but we will see how the second half of the year pans out...

Here's a picture I took many years ago near the Resurrection 50...happy 2012 running!
