  • Nanny Goat 100 Race Report


    By Leigh Ann Guveiyian

    The Nanny Goat 24 hour race takes place on a one mile dirt loop on a private horse ranch located in Riverside California.

    The race is open to solo runners or teams of four runners. The object is to complete as many laps as possible within an allotted 12 or 24 hour period. Any runner logging 86 or more miles in 24 hours may continue to 100 miles (with a firm cutoff at 28 hours).

    This was my 3rd year competing and finishing Nanny Goat as a 100 miler.

  • Is your "speed work" working your speed?

    Speed workout.

    "Speed Work" is a term that gets thrown around a lot.

    Many people feel speed work is anything faster than their habitual easy pace.

    Enough so that I actually did the same for a few other sports, and the results were interesting enough that I saved them to share.

    These in no way reflect what we at SKORA think, but I thought it was curious what people are searching on Google about various athletes!

  • Sulphur Springs 100 Race Recap

    By Wally Azarcon

    On May 23-24th, I completed my first 100 miler ultra marathon. It was a Christmas gift from my fiancée because I told her I wanted to do it and I knew I could complete it.

    I only had 4 months to train for it, but working a full-time job and my fiancée being pregnant at that time, I knew it was going to be a challenge to find time to train and get the mileage I needed to prepare for a 100 miler.

  • Find the Recovery that Works Best for You

    Geoffrey and Beth at the Flint Hills race

    Becoming a better runner is not as much about running as you think.

    Running breaks us down.

    Weakens us.

    It's during the days where we run nice and easy or not at all that we get stronger.
