  1. Way to go Deb! Keep putting one foot in front of the other! How about her dog? Accomplishing something most humans cannot do, just spectacular! I am trying to put together a run across the Americas, picked up some sponsorship from Las Vegas Printing to help with management costs and getting things rolling, hopefully it will come together soon!

  2. This is a great information on marathon world. Thanks for sharing it.

  3. I think running is good for everyone. It gives you health benefits like a good blood circulation and it can be your sport too. Thank you for posting this.

  7. Hi all, i’m new to the site but a keen ultra runner.
    I recently came back from the Himalayas where I did 100 mile across 5 days and there were some serious hills.

    I’ve done a race review for my blog so if you are interested in this run have a read, it really is spectacular with views of Everest during day 2 and 3, amazing.

    I’d also love to follow like minded people on Twitter.
    Cheers Johnny

  11. New ultra to put on your calendars: St. Croix Scenic 50 in the US Virgin Islands
    What better way to see this gem of the Caribbean than to run over a good portion of its rugged mountains and along its stunning shoreline? The course promises to be as challenging as it is beautiful. Historic sugar mills and two centuries old forts lie along this spectacular course. On clear days you can see 40 miles north to St. Thomas, St. John and the BVI’s. The St. Croix Ironman 70.3 has earned a reputation because of the Beast, and this course runs the whole spine of the Beast. It’s hot, even in January, so be prepared if you want to take on the St. Croix Scenic 50. Go to the race page at – Hope to see you there!

  12. Please check-out and schedule on next years’ calendar the Red Mountain 50k. Run in Scenic Southwestern Utah, as always promising moderate temps, and beautiful scenery. Next years date is April 24th, 2010. For more info check the site, Hope to See you there!!!!
