Back in the Game

Hey gang – sorry to have dropped off the map for the last couple of months.  I was traveling during the holidays and unfortunately with everything going on my blog updates got “de-prioritized” (as they say).

However, I’m back.  And I have lots to share.

  • First, I didn’t get an entry into Western States.   No biggie, as I’m totally not ready.
  • I had some amazing long runs in Italy during December
  • Even though my training has been a lot lower than I was hoping, I’m going to man up and run the Rocky Raccoon 100 next weekend
  • I’ve completely revamped by diet, based on a ton of research into becoming fat adapted.

I’ll be sharing details of each of those over the next week or so.

Also, you might have noticed that the structure of this blog changed slightly.  Now it’s a better fit with my evolving Ultra philosophy “Go Long, Stay Strong, and Get Fast”. Everything that I’ll be researching, learning, experimenting and adjusting will ladder up to those goals.

And, of course, the ultimate goal – completing the slam.
