I started running ultramarathons on April 3, 1993, when I ran the American River 50. I started this web site sometime before May 15, 1995 (that's the earliest record I have), when I was working for Silicon Graphics and selling/supporting web products. Since I retired (OK, I was laid off) on October 13, 1997 I've been operating this web site as a free service to the ultrarunning community (especially the RDs), since I love the sport and the people who are part of it.
Unfortunately, I've been hit hard by the recession (who hasn't) and the sad reality is that I need to get a job and find other sources of income. So, it is with some regret that as of January 1, 2009 I am finally trying what people have told me to do for years: generate income from my web site. I'm still working on the details, but the first phase is to ask people to mail me a donation for whatever they feel Run100s.com is worth to them as a runner (or as an RD). Please send your checks (payable to "Stan Jensen", not Run100s.com, please) to:
