Monthly Miles: February 2017

That month went quick. It was also largely uneventful. February was dedicated to continuing building base. I don’t have a race that matters until May so I don’t want to do too much too soon and burn myself out or get injured.

I ended up with 258 miles for the month for an average of 64.5 miles per week. That is 15 more miles than I logged in February 2016. The difference is the intensity is much lower. Last year I was in the throes of marathon training for Boston and doing a lot of quality runs. Right now I’m running quite a bit slower.

All the standard monthly Strava challenges were completed.

One exciting thing that happened this month running wise is the UltrAspire Immortal Ambassadors got our discount codes to share with our friends. You can use code UAIMFF15 for 15% off at the UltrAspire online store. I’ll be pulling the trigger on buying the Lumen 600 for myself shortly. One of my weaknesses in my 100 milers so far has been running through the night and I have a strong feeling the Lumen 600 will help at the San Diego 100 in June.

UltrAspire Immortal Ambassador

I’m excited to announce that I have been selected for the 2017 UltrAspire Immortal Ambassador Team! When I moved up to the 100 mile distance a few years ago I wasn’t happy with most of the hydration packs I had been using. They weren’t that comfortable and I knew comfort was going to be important, especially in the later miles of the race. Then I read about the Speedgoat waist pack. It was designed with input of ultra running legend Karl Meltzer. That was enough to pique my interest and give it try. After my first run with it I fell in love with the pack and became an UltrAspire fan.

Meet the 2017 UltrAspire Immortal Team

These days I find myself using the Zygos race vest for my longer endeavors. It allows me to carry more water thanks to the reservoir and I can still carry a bottle in one of the front pockets with Tailwind in it for my electrolytes and calories. I still fall back to using the Speedgoat for shorter races when I don’t want to carry around the extra weight from a reservoir full of water.

I’m looking forward to representing UltrAspire in the coming year at races, in training and through my social media channels. It is a brand I use and a brand I trust.
