Tenative 2011 race and run schedule - Bonneville Shoreline Trail Marathon, Grandeur Peak fun run, Timp Trail Marathon, Pocatello 50 mile, Western States 100 mile, Vermont 100 mile, Leadville 100 mile, Wasatch 100 mile (yep, trying for the grand slam of ultrarunning), Striders Winter training series, Moab Red Hot 50K, Red Mountain 50K, Survivor Series 10K (Rockford, IL), Grand Canyon Double crossing, Zion traverse, Boise Half Ironman (my first tri).  Might Run the Ogden Valley 50 mile, the Pony Express 50 mile and maybe the Chimera 100 in November.  I'm a memeber of the Wasatch Speedgoat Mountain Racing Team (www.wasatchspeedgoat.com).  One of my major goals is to not embarass the team with poor finishes.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Stay injury free and still be able to outrun kids half my age.  Stay fit enough to keep up with my grandson.

Personal:

52, married for 30 years to the same wonderful woman, 2 grown kids, 1 grandson.

That's my son and I in the picture at the 2007 Buffalo Run.  He's always a big help and a pretty cool kid.

I direct the Antelope Island Buffalo Run, the Mountain View Trail Half Marathon, and the Antelope Island 50K/100K, all on Antelope Island State Park.  The website is www.buffalorun.org

Come on out and run it, we have a good time.

Ran up the south Skyline trail from the Pineview trailhead until the snow got too deep.  roughly 4 miles up.  This is a great trail for doing hill repeats.  The first three miles are uphill and at a fairly constant grade.  Did a run 2minutes, walk 2 minutes for those three miles up and blasted the entire way back down.  I'm feeling the after effects this morning.  Finished up with a easy run along the Pineview shoreline trail to the north arm trailhead and back.  Icky trail, didn't like it at all.

Ran on the treadmill at home.  Didn't feel like running in the bad weather.

Spent the day marking the 50 mile course for the Buffalo Run on Saturday.  Took a couple from hawaii that came over just for the race.  They really enjoyed seeing all the wildlife out on the island.

the second running of the Antelope Ilsand Buffalo Run is today.  I had 191 runners start the three races.  I think around 187 finished.  It was a great day for a trail run.  I was exhausted by the end of the day.
