      No Comments on Yes, I need to post more

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted.  Yes, I really need to post more.  I have run several ultra races since my last post including the Catamount 50K, the Cacapon 12 hour, Rosaryville, 50K, The Ring 72 Miler, and the Big Schloss 50K.  All these races deserve their own race reports, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to keep up.  I… Read more »

MMT 100 Mile – 2016 Race Report

      3 Comments on MMT 100 Mile – 2016 Race Report

The North Face Endurance Challenge GORE-TEX 50 Mile – Washington, DC – 2016 Race Report

  I imagine that no race likes to hear that it was second choice, but to be brutally honest, I only signed up for the 2016 The North Face Endurance Challenge (TNFEC) GORE-TEX 50 mile race one week before race day.  I held out because I was hoping to get into the Bull Run Run 50 mile (BRR 50) race… Read more »

TJ100K Race Report 2016 Sunset

I finally arrived at the race start area at approximately 4:45 AM.  It was only about 15 minutes before the official start of the 3rd annual Thomas Jefferson 100K (TJ100K), which took place on March 12, 2016. I wish I could say that my arrival time that morning was intentional.  Unfortunately, that was not the case.  After checking-in and claiming a… Read more »

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is a nice little beach town.  I am not sure if it was just because of the… Read more »

      28 Comments on Garmin fenix 3 vs Suunto Ambit3 Peak

If you’re looking for a GPS watch for trail running or ultramarathons, two watches to consider are the Garmin fenix 3 and Suunto Ambit3 Peak. I have already written a review of both the Garmin fenix 3 and the Suunto Ambit3 Peak Sapphire.  However, I thought a separate post specifically comparing the two watches would be useful. Since I use the watches… Read more »
