Old school fun in Western Wyoming

Racing is fun but it is only a facet of what we do. Protecting the areas in which we adventure is the heart and soul of ultrarunning. There is nothing quite as empowering or humbling as a self propelled day in the mountains. The mountains don’t care how fast you are and they always demand respect. We have a huge responsibility to take care of these places. The future generations deserve to have the same opportunities and enjoy the wild as we do.

i regret to inform you…

I read Laz's words of "encouragement" only minutes after getting a text from Jared, "Did you get a condolence letter?" I was as confident as I have ever been about anything- there's no way I would be picked, With only 40 slots available and a surge in interest in...

JMT…Yes, please

The Bear 200

Several of you have asked when I would have a report up about my Bear 200 adventure. It has been a lot to digest. Not entirely because of the enormity of the project but also the personal nature of it. I appreciate Leon for helping me articulate the experience. The...

Winter Adventurethons

The Great Salmon Run-How it all went down

"I think we're taking this whole Salmon metaphor way too far...." That's all I could come up with at the time. We had been wandering off course for hours, trying to get up to the Bighorn Crags. As it turns out the 78 miles we ran along the river was the easy part. We...

Ty Draney Endurance coaching made all the difference for me last year, Ty helped me make the transition from Cyclist to Runner and helped boost my fitness and racing to a whole other level.
