The Bighorn 100 19

IS BIGHORN ONLY 2 WEEKS AWAY? I think I had better start running again. The competition will be fierce at Bighorn this year with easily the strongest field to date. Lon Freemen (Miwok winner and new record holder), Mike Wolfe (White River 50 Champ), Josh Brimhall (Fast guy always), Wahsatchspeedgoat (getting tired) Matt Hart (mystery […]


Trail running or Trail hunting ? 7

Each spring I bushwhack through the high sage meadows in search of the mighty elk horns. Today was my day, as I stumbled over a 5 x 5 rack from the winter shed. Cruising into the front yard with a new decoration for the cabin. Bahaha two scrapes! Meltzer heads to the Teva Games next […]

Zane Grey course on fire !! 8

We knew it was unseasonably hot this year at Zane Grey, is this what we are in for this summer? There are fires in Georgia, Florida, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, California and Arizona. This is only mid May and the wild fire season is already out of control. I went running through the Uinta […]


MASSANUTTEN 100 THIS WEEKEND HAS 160 STRONG! The question is, are there any unknowns? Without Jae Duk Sim this year, we don’t think there are any sleepers out there. Unfortunately, Matt Estes will not be running leaving Sean Andrish and Todd Walker to challenge the Wasatch Speedgoat. Will the third time be a charm?, We’ll […]

Goat fix with Montrail Vitesse 7

BLISTER MANAGEMENT THE OLD FASHIONED WAY. For those out there having issues running after a race because of that nagging blister on your heel, try this. Head to the tool shed, grab your drill and a 1″ spade bit, mount shoe on a vice and drill away right where the blister is. (go to photo). […]



Trail Running with your dog 3

This is Juneau and her brother Timber, these two pups weigh more than any cougar. The team of Malamute/Timberwolves are great to have with you when running through the mountains of Utah, knowing you passed at least one cougar while running. After a couple seasons of trail running, these pups are always checking me for […]

The Capitol Peak 50 mile

The Capitol Peak 50 mile, 55K, and Relay results are now posted on the website: The weather was finally nice to everyone out there, especially those who returned from suffering in last year’s snow madness, and the previous year with the “thorny carwash”! All I can say is… it’s about time! Hopefully the weather is […]
