Eagle Up With Mohammad Schultz

“A successful leader will take a diverse mix of unknown people with unknown skillsets and abilities and make them want to make the impossible, possible.” -Mohammad Schultz We often look up to the elites and the fast folks in our running world. We are fascinated by their stories and we want to follow their every move. While it is fun to see what they can do on a daily basis, I am more often than not fascinated by regular people. People...

Colorado 14ers: Adventure Ultrarunning

Colorado. I love this place. In 2008,  I was fortunate to move here and bring my love of endurance sports with me. Life is different in Colorado. Who you are is what you do. Climber? Skier? Mountain biker? Ultrarunner? It’s not about what you have…it’s what you do. How do you live your life? What do you do with your precious time? I don’t take it for granted when I stop on the trail to let a deer, bear, or moose walk by. I just...

Bryce 100 Race Report

These things are always hard for me write and, in fact, I never planned on a post race report regardless of the outcome. While I usually never shut up about running, I struggle with idea of talking about my own personal victories and balancing that line between humility and boastfulness. After many requests though, I guess I can concede. And the only way for me to approach this is to just shoot it straight. My pre race report pretty...

Bighorn 100 Pre-Race Photo Reflections

This morning I awoke before my 4:50am alarm. I drowsily stumbled around, threw on my favorite soft running clothes, tracked down a handheld and a pair of shoes and tossed them in the car. Scoping out the wildcat ridge It is fitting that my last taper run is where it all started: on Wire – a short, steep mountain climb overlooking Salt Lake City. I turned on my Wire playlist as I drove, realizing I was a few minutes behind. Yes,...

Bryce 100 Pre Race Report

This weekend I will be toeing the line for the Bryce 100. Keeping with my 100 mile rituals, I’m typing this while enjoying a beverage at the town’s only coffee shop. I spend a couple days before the race camping out with my pacer mentally preparing for what’s about to take place. Convincing my body that it’s OK to run 100 miles and getting myself right mentally are just as important as the months of physical preparation that...

Corre Libre – Born To Run 100K

The Born to Run was everything I imagined and even more. A fun weekend, filled with music, dancing, camping and running – a celebration of life. After running the double marathon few weeks before, I was confident going into my very first 100K race. Even though it was little difficult finding out the elevation profile for this run, I was able to determine that there would be about 7500 ft of elevation gain, very similar to what I...

Dirty German Endurance Fest 50 Mile Race Report

I have officially completed my first stand-alone 50 miler and it was on beautiful trails in the city of Philadelphia! I had the lucky chance to interview the RD of this race a month back, which had me even more excited for the race! The race occurred in Pennypack Park in Northeast Philadelphia with ideal weather conditions (low temps started in the 50s with a high in the mid-60s, with a few rain sprinkles). Packet pick-up was quick...
