Any day up at Wisdom is a good day. #RunItFast #Badwater #WisdomTree

Fun morning leading good friend @chriskostman, his Norwegian cousin Norunn, and her friend Tove to the Wisdom Tree and over behind the Hollywood sign into Griffith Park and back to Lake Hollywood. These women do intense ski marathons and multi day stage events in the snow on skis back in Norway. A day up to Wisdom is always a good day. #RunItFast #Badwater #WisdomTree

Dirt deeds.

Born to Run 100 Miler finisher buckle and a special finisher award from Mas Korima made by the Tarahumara in the Copper Canyons of Mexico. Very nice touch and beautiful award that means a lot to me that were personally made for finishers of Born to Run. When I read the book Born to Run many years ago I never envisioned that one day I'd be good friends with several of the characters from the book. Thanks, @mas_korima and BTR. #RunItFast #BornToRun #MasKorima

#TBT to the Maui Oceanfront Marathon in 2014...I believe. I had broke 2-3 ribs the day before while surfing. I ran about a 3:35 that day only about to take 1/2 breaths. Painful yet rewarding day. #RunItFast #mauioceanfrontmarathon #mauimarathon #maui

Strolling Jim 40 Miler medal from this historic race that took place May 6, 2017 in Wartrace, Tennessee. This year was my 7th time to run it. #RunItFast #strollingjim #SJ40

Trailrunning at its finest. Sunset during the Born to Run 100 Miler. #RunItFast #ultrarunners #sunset

Sunset at Born to Run Ultra in Los Olivos, California just a couple hours after the 6pm start of the 106 mile race. Beautiful countryside. #RunItFast #BornToRun #nature

Chasing the sun around mile 102 of the Born to Run 106 Miler. Finally checked results last night, 3rd male, 4th oa. Better than I thought. Heat really seemed to cook most everyone on the course. 14,740 feet of climb. Beautiful and challenging course. Time 24:57:05. #RunItFast #BornToRun #MasKorima

I think they might have spotted Disneyland from the hotel room this afternoon. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #disneyland #disneylandhotel #disney #anaheim

Born to Run 100 in Los Olivos, California on a 8,000 acre cattle ranch, hosted by Luis Escobar, was a lot of things... It's an amazing event with distances of all levels from a 0K, beer mile, 10 mile, 30 mile, 100 mile, 200 mile, and 4 day. It's the Woodstock of running but in some ways probably wilder than the actual Woodstock. People show up days before to camp out in tents and RV's. A stage has constant music and entertainment, some of it enhanced quite a bit from the 'festivities.' As for the race it was very challenging. The course had to be rerouted due to three angry steers that had taken over part of the course...I mean they do live there. Due to this the course was 6 miles longer...106 miles. This changed some time goals immediately. It also added on 2-3k more feet of climb for about 14,776 for the race. I ran well early on and pretty good throughout the night. The race started at 6pm Friday so we hit the night hours immediately. The sun rose on Saturday and it was blazingly relentless with temps reaching as high as 94-100° depending where you were on the course. The heat devastated everyone but everyone did their best to battle through it. I ended up finishing in 24:57:37 for top 10 and maybe top 5 but simply didn't care. I just wanted to get it finished and a big burrito from the food truck. Big presence of @mas_korima at the race and they provided some amazing finisher awards from the Copper Canyons. I fueled on their Kormilitas and Andale the entire race with minimal other food. This was my 40th race of 100+ miles. Congrats to RIF's @coastalsoundz on finishing his first 100 and big thank you for the post race burrito. #RunItFast #MasKorima #korimalitas #BornToRun

Tonight at 6pm I start the Born to Run 100 Miler. The photo above is from the last time I ran it two years ago. Temps will get up close to 90° the last few hours of the race. It has about 13k feet of climb and is on a large cattle ranch across from Neverland. It should be a fun time with Run It Fast members and many great friends. #RunItFast #BornToRun #MasKorima
