  2. Another baby!
    You are truly in the PRO category. Husband, father of two, full time job, cranks 100+ weekly, lots of podiums, and not afraid to race any distance or terrain.
    Gas a tope!! "full steam"

  3. Whatever that UROY award really means, I sure think you deserve to be high on the list. Bandera to Wasatch, quite a ride!

  4. Hey Nick, with so many fast men (Roes, Mackey, Grossman, Olmstead, J. Bryant, Vega, Omine, Moore etc) and women (Howard, Africa, Arboghast, P. Smith, and A. Bryant) signed up to do Bandera 100k are you going to give your odds? As last year's winner I would like think you be more qualified than anyone to give odds.

  5. I'm embarrassed to even look at your numbers... SOLID! Here's to an even more prosperous 2011!

  6. Thanks guys. Yeah, pretty stoked on my 2010. Looking for bigger and better in 2011.

    Chris - first off, I fully expect my CR to go down. I had a decent run last year, but certainly not a great run. With the competition, I wouldn't be surprised if two or three guys went under nine hours.

    Had a quick look at the entrants, and I'd have to say that Roes and Mackey are the two standouts, but I'd imagine guys like Jason Wolfe and Dan Olmstead will give them a run for their money. Others that should compete (but probably won't get on the podium) include Vega, Omine, Grossman, Ballesteros, Godale and James. All solid runners. I'm sure there'll be some local guys who go well too.

    On the women's side, I guess I'd have to pick the local favorite, Howard, but certainly she's got some strong competition. Last time I spoke to Darcy she was unsure if she was going to run, but if she does then I'd say she'd be up there given the technical nature of the course - and I'd certainly be pulling for her given that she's a teammate. Arboghast had a great 2010 of course, so got to think she'll be up there. Pam Smith might miss out on the WS spot again if all three of the aforementioned show up. Don't know anything about A Bryant.

    Kind of wish I was coming down - I had a lot of fun last year.

  7. Thanks for the thoughts Nick. A Bryant won Mountain Masochist for the women in a speedy time. She is an up and comer. Hopefully Darcy is able to come down.

    I agree on the men's side that it should be Roes or Mackey if they are running well. It probably boils down to who is able to handle the rocks better and power up the hills late in the race. Too bad you can't make it down. I think with the knowledge you gained last year and how well you are running you would definitely be in the mix with Roes and Mackey.

  8. Awesome year, Nick, you deserved it!

    I like what you did with the numbers, too. Between that, and your patented T&H and Towers timing algorithms, as well as your beer ABV percentage versus cost analysis, people really need to respect your strategizing as well!

  9. Amazing year. I'm almost afraid to ask how much time it took you to figure out all the numbers for this post...
