The Day Before The Day!

Today I once again drove across the state of South Dakota to join a couple hundred runners at the Lean Horse ultra marathon.

I took pictures, recorded a short video and then learned I left my laptop at home. So this will be a short post from my phone.

My big hope is to shave at least an hour off last years 12 hour/50 mile finish. I have a much better training foundation this time around.

I'll keep it short. Save the images and such for the next post.


  1. Hi Nick,

    I am sorry I am leaving a comment, I can't find your email. I am writing you in the hopes that you want to participate in an e-book we are writing about ultra runners.

    We want to tap into the collective craziness (we mean that as a compliment:-)) of this community to challenge and inspire other people to make their own life an ever-greater creative expression of their own goals and dreams… without limits.

    We would ask you to answer two questions about your experience with ultra running.

    If you'd like to participate please shoot me an email at


    All the best,

  2. Hi Nick! I just became a new follower and can't wait to hear how your race went. excited to read more about your races in the future. good luck!


  3. Hey Nick, I am planning on running the Black Hills 100 - 50 mile race and am wanting to incorporate a high carb mostly fruit diet before doing so to lose weight and improve performance. I found your blog through your profile on and thought i would drop you a line. How did the Lean Horse run go?
