Notes from the Goats 18

Jurek has his hands full at Spartathlon!

Can Scott repeat? Was it a good idea to bail at 42 miles at Mt. Blanc? We’ll find out soon as Valmir Nunez, Jens Lukas, Markus Thalman (all previous winners) to the line in Greece for the ultimate pavement pounder of 255KM. The list is super -deep and of course us goats don’t know all the mystery men. A long line-up of Korean and Japanese runners are also sure to be in the running. Also from the US, 24 hour record holder Mark Godale will show up as well as Jenn Shelton to push the women’s side, we’ll stay tuned for this one.

Nate McDowell wins in Moab and breaks Mr. Torrence’s record by 33 minutes!

Nate is back on track putting another solid performance down in Moab at his specialty distance of 50 tough miles. Not surprise to me, The Moab course is probably one of the most scenic courses on earth, it might be better to run it slower and enjoy it…yah right!

Bear 100 starts Friday!

One more 100 miler for me and I’m done for a while. Speedgoat will go for a 4th 100 mile win of 2007 in Leland Barker’s backyard, the Bear River Range. The colors are stellar this year as always. The field, larger than ever before should make it a great day in Idaho. Tune into bear100.com to check it out.
