    Hi Im a high school runner and I have a problem. I can stick with all the top guys at my school in practices and everything, in long runs, intervals, etc. But when it comes to races I cant seem to stick with them. I also ran 470 miles over the summer with my friend and hes the fastest on the team and im about the 7th or 8th at the moment but at practice im right behind him. I find that im always putting myself down and struggle with the mental aspect of running when it comes to races. Could I get some advice please? Thanks much! You’re Great!

    Coach, I hope this question is not inappropriate, but I don’t have a lot of contacts in Utah. I recently got into the Wasatch 100 and see that you have completed the race. I am hoping to come out during the summer for a long weekend to scout out the trail and run a large portion of it. I am curious when the peaks are likely to be cleared of snow to allow that and also if the trail is well enough marked to accomplish this on my own or would I need to have someone along that knew that trail well? thanks for your time.


  8. Tim,
    Congratulations. What a great feeling of excitement, fear, and anxiety you must be feeling. You are going to love the Wasatch 100. The course is beautiful, the organization is great, and the competitors are friendly and inspiring.
    The trail looks pretty good by mid July. Some of the portions would be okay before then. You can follow the Wasatch 100 Facebook page, and people typically show updates of the trail. You might be able to find a few organized runs on the Facebook page and definitely a lot of helpful information. When I have a question about the course – I usually turn to the Facebook page and someone has the answers.
    Let me know when you are in town, and if I am not too busy, I wouldn’t mind hitting some of the trail with you. My favorite section is from Lamb’s Canyon to Brighton (about 24 miles).
    Hope that helps.
    Best of luck –
    Corbin Talley
