730+ MILES ON MY FEET HOW I SPEND MY TIME AWAY FROM WORK

Scott Rokis photo

This is a five part trilogy (yes, I know). A collective set of words and images from my 2016 set of ultra running events, that as of this writing will hopefully accumulate to more than 730 of racing miles. I hope you enjoy the journey in this virtual way even 1/730th as much as I did running it.

COME RUN A VIRTUAL MILE IN MY SHOES

...maybe I will sit here for a while before going at it again.

OK, rest time is over. That was all soooo last summer. Time for the next challenge. The race director of Bigfoot 200 & Tahoe 200 has created and is about to open registration for a third event, the Moab 200 (actually 234 miles).

In sequence with that is the separate event for those who do all (or in previous years both) of her 200 mile races. Previously called the Double Crown, now the Triple Crown of 200's.

Brag time, check the Top Performances column on the right, follow the link below:

Photos by professional photographers have been purchased in the digital form.

Well, I congratulate anyone for making it this far through this lengthy personal saga of ultra-running. Hopefully at least the photos added some interest. Still the question may remain for many, runners or not, WHY? The following link is not a complete answer to that, but may fill in some blanks.
