Why You Should Run 100 Mile Ultra Solo

Running Without a Pacer I ran the San Diego 100 for the first time in 2010.  I really did not know what I was getting myself into.  The only reason I was doing it was because a couple of guys I normally run with were doing it.  I figured I would tag along and document their pain.  I really did not e [...]

Pacific Crest Trail 50 Mile Endurance Run 2011 (PCT 50)

It was my 5th PCT 50 in 5 years. I was under trained and had gorged myself on Mountain Mikes Pizza with Tom and Stephen the night before. Standing at the familiar starting line I wondered how my body would perform. Last year I ran 10:18 and felt pretty good. But last year I used the PCT 50 as a training run for the San Diego 100. This year, due to personal reasons my training was sorely lacking. The race started and the familiar climb from 3000 feet to 6000 feet of elevation began. I tried to stay with Tom but he was too fast. It was not long before Stephen passed me by too. My stomach was not cooperating and it was only mile 5! It was going to be a long, long day.
