It was hard to take a nearly three week trip and produce a short video; much less the 7 days and many, many hours of the event. But I hope you enjoy this highly edited version of things. professional soccer picks oddslot paid betting tips from expert tipsters

Thank You for Supporting Me

I cannot begin to describe how grateful I am to all of you. I was touched by your support and your emails. Most of all, your support of TASH has been more than I could ask. I was also humbled by how many of you expressed interest in the Marathon Des Sables itself. I saw it as a challenge for sure, but I have always held that there ...

My Show Starts Now

The time has come and this will be my final post until I return. It is hard to relax and the stresses continue to mount. Did I pack everything? Do I have the required papers? The required kit? Will my family have what they need while I’m gone? Then there are the things beyond my control such as; If my bag is lost or if my plane is ...

The Challenge Ahead

I am fully aware that it is my own decision to put myself through all of this. But in some ways, it is a mandate beyond my authority. It is something I must do. There is never one reason to undertake something so large that requires years of commitment by not just me, but my family as well. This is not about racing. It is not even ...

Another Go This was my second attempt at 100 miles. The first was cut short at 75 miles largely due to not making good time. This race was cut short due to an injury. The first race was plagued by unexpected heat and humidity which resulted in nutrition issues. This race had unexpected freezing weather […]

Running on Sugar – Pt.3 and The Next 100 Miles

Lessons Learned After a hard analysis of the events from my first 100-mile attempt, I have taken away some key lessons to apply next time: Hoka’s do not perform well in sugar sand. I will run in Altra Torins at the beginning of the race, and pack the Hokas in my drop bag for the […]

Running on Sugar – Pt.2

100 miles seems far, but it is merely a balance between planning and risk. You have to plan, prepare and break it down and then...you just have to do it. I was as prepared as I could be for that distance. I had trained and tapered. My race-day nutrition plan was modeled on successful plans I had used at the 50 mile distance. I had ...

Running on Sugar – Pt.1

It has been a couple of weeks since taking part in the Wild Sebastian 100. While two weeks is not a long time to write a micro-memoir or sorts, it is an eternity for recollecting details involving severe pain. The mind is good at supressing the experience of pain and the darkest of the details surrounding it. Since it is said ...
