Zane Grey 50 Course Marking - April 14

It's that time again Ultrarunners! Official trail marking day for Zane Grey is on Sat. April 14th. We will be meeting at the Safeway in Payson at 7:00am. At the intersection of Hwy. 260 & 87, turn right...towards Show Low, Heber, Holbrook, etc. You will see McDonald's on the corner. Safeway will be your right, look for my red Honda Element. Safeway has bathrooms, can purchase snackies, water, even has Starbucks!

So I can organize groups, please contact me in advance. Distances are normally around 7-8 miles. This is a great way to see part of the course, and it's fun! Bring a friend, family, doggy...

I can be reached on my cell at 602-399-0531 or email me at

Thanks for your help! :)

WMRC 3/28

Look who remembered a reminder. My mind is tired of no sleep and baby farts.

We are on tomorrow morning at 5:17am at the top lot of SQ PK DR. Blue will be there, I probably won't.

Runner of the week is Honey Albrecht. She ran the Gorge Waterfalls 50K in 5:41 over the weekend. Had to be one of the prettiest courses I have ever seen. Ran past 7 falls like the picture above.

Everyone else tied for last place.

Do I seem bitter? I haven't slept in 5 weeks and am training for a 100 on 17 miles a week and 2.6 hrs of sleep a night. Bye.

Heyo! We are on for a group run in the preserve tomorrow morning at 5:16am. Lots of great races this past weekend.

Congrats to Scott Schmidt-The Madd Crapper of Mt Ord, for finishing his first 50 miler at OP this past weekend. He came in at 11:18 for 51 miles. Not too bad for his first, Felt great and will be there tomorrow.

I am not sure if it was Alison's first 50 but she killed it in 10:07! Holy Crap that is great!

Also at OP were Joe Galope, Jon Roig, Andrew Heard, Artemus Bourque and crewing for these fine folks was Klown and Meg Powers!

Jay Danek did great at Neuces 50 miler in Texas this weekend also, placing 20th overall in 9:something...Great Job Jay, keep it up!
