"Ugh, looks like I am going to be travelling to Orlando/Miami for work during May 14th so I won't be able to make it after all. Would have loved to join you guys."

John Burton replied to H.Taylor's discussion What Is Your Favorite Brand Of Running Shoes ?
"I've been running in Brooks Adrenaline (road shoe) for about 5 years now, even though I log most of my miles on trails rather than roads. I like the agressive tread of the Adrenaline's, which works great on rocky terrain. But if it's…"

John Burton replied to Von's discussion Whats a regular run for you? in the group Ultrarunning
"I've got a couple of "regular" runs that I do during the week. Each is about 10 miles long, on dirt fire roads with some singletrack, and involves about 2000 ft of elevation gain. Then of course I throw in a longer run on the…"

About Me
Hi, my name is John Burton. Software product manager by morning, ultra runner by mid-afternoon. If I'm not half-asleep on some conference call you can probably find me out on the trails tearing it up. Or sometimes just slogging it out. Or perhaps sitting on a comfortable rock somewhere in the sun, catching my breath. It's all good.
Ultra running, trail running, marathons, road cylcing, mountain biking
Events you will Finish
I've decided that 2011 is going to be the year I do my first 100 mile run! I've signed up for the BlackHills 100, being held on June 25, 2011 in Sturgis, South Dakota. I've completed quite a few 50K and 50 mile trail races in the past 5 years. And I've twice tried -- and failed -- to run 100 miles. I dropped out at mile 72 the first time at Umstead 100 in North Carolina where I was woefully under trained (and lucky to have actually made it that far). And I dropped out of Tahoe Rim Trail 100 at mile 75 due to a variety of wimpy excuses inluding a nasty blister, altitude sickness, and a general lack of toughness. But this year is going to be different. I'm actually going to train! I've started a blog called “Running John” http://runningjohn.blogspot.com dedicated to documenting my adventures and fiascos this year as I prepare for my first 100 miler!
