Each year I trail run from my house through the Uinta’s looking for Elk Sheds but today I found a nice Moose Antler, it’s not often you stumble across one of these! Getting ready for the Bighorn 100 Trail Run next weekend….
Kyle Skaggs destroyed the course record at this year Hardrock 100. I was in Silverton, Colorado for two weeks acclimating for the ultimate trail race and heard rumors that Kyle wanted to finish less than 24 hours. I thought to myself no way, later I learned Kyle spent most of his summer in Silverton running the entire snow covered coarse. Once the race started Kyle took off and never looked back, paced by accomplished trail runner Nate McDowell Kyle was able to complete the course in 23:23:30. Anyone who’s finished this race is asking themselves how did he do it? 10 scrapes!!!
