Zane Grey 50 – McNaughton Park 100 3

The next race is the rugged Zane Grey in Payson Arizona 4/28/07. I haven’t ran there for several years, the last time was right after a hernia operation. This year the race will reverse directions on the point to point course. The elevation gain is dropping by 1,600 feet with the course change, this should […]

Montrail-downhill running 4

LEAN FORWARD AND PUNCH IT! A downhill running tip to make up time in your next Ultra. Many races I have run always have a downhill section where the majority of racers lose time. The real key to running downhill is like skiing. You must stand on the center of your ski. The same applies […]

The SpeedGoat Lodge 3

Life is good at the SpeedGoat Lodge, we live 7200 feet above sea level in the Uinta Mountains. Our house is located at the west entrance, the only mountain’s in North America that runs east west instead of north south. I bought the house with the intention of improving my high altitude training. Thank goodness […]

Blister Management 2

NOTES FROM THE GOATS: I’ve got blisters on my blisters, isn’t that from a Beatles album? In the first days of ultrarunning your feet are tender and you can end up with some big blisters during those 100 mile races. I used to have mole skin, second skin and all kinds of remedies for those […]

Yes there is a dog named Montrail, I found him lost and starving up Rose canyon in Utah 7 years ago. Montrail has become the most loyal training partner any one could ask for. Even though Montrail has backed off his mileage the last couple years, he can still bang out the toughest trail runs […]
