2020 Hom 100 -Save the Date!

Set your calendars for the first weekend in February to get loopy with me and my friends! Every year we get together to honor a great man who was taken from us too soon. Tony Hom was a dear friend to my and many others in our neighborhood.

Just like last year, you can run, skip, walk, ride, crab-walk, scooter or hoverboard your way around the 1.87 mile Freeman Farms loop. Go as long or as short as you want - completely up to you.

My goal used to be 100 miles. But these bones just don't have in them to do that any more. I try for 100k (62 miles) but even that is hard. Now, we just go as far as we can in 12-hours, drink beer, sleep a little and have fun. It's what Tony would have loved to do if he were here (no, not really - he hated running!) :-)

Anyway, come join me in the fun and festivities. We'll start at midnight on 2/8 and go until noon. Immediately after, we'll have a potluck lunch at the park near our place.

The Facebook event is here. The logistics and event details are here.

Squad Goals

This year's Hom 100 is going to be a bit different. Being injured means I'll have to rely on my crew to help me bank the normal 62 miles. Everyone is encouraged to put together a team - friends, family or coworkers will work just fine. Team up and put in some miles. What ever each person does gets added up so that your cumulative total is compared to every other team participating.

For example:

Team member 1 does 20 miles
Team member 2 does 3 miles
Team member 3 does 12 miles
----------------------------------------
Team total = 35 miles


So rally your squad and get ready to put in some miles. Remember, we don't care if you're running, walking, riding or crab-crawling so long as you're not on a motorized or electric vehicle (e.g., must be human-powered).

Comment below if you know who's on your squad. Don't forget a cool team name either!!

Prizes will be given out for:

  1. Most miles
  2. Fewest miles
  3. Best costumes
  4. Best team name
  5. Largest team

Something new for 2019

I have a small problem.

Stress fracture :-(
It will be at least the middle of January before I'm able to put any miles on my feet due to this injury. Which means that there won't be any 100k run for me this year at the Hom 100. Yes, I'm bummed about the injury but I think I've found a new way to honor Tony's life and legacy at this years event.

This year we'll be creating teams of participants who will collectively work towards achieving their own 100k (62 miles) distance over the course of 12 hours. Teams can be made up of runners, walkers or cyclists...just no gas-powered or electric vehicles :-)


We'll unofficially start at midnight on February 2 and start collecting miles. We'll break at 8 am to gather up other friends and neighbors (and probably have some donuts) and then continue on until noon. The Davenport's will host a BBQ starting at 1 pm once everything is broken down and cleaned up at the main aid station.

There is still some work to do in preparation but I'm looking forward to seeing how things come together and whether this format will be more inclusive and fun for everyone involved. If you're interested in helping out at the aid station or contributing anything for the event (all food and supplies are donated), please let me know. We love the help!

2019 Hom 100 - Save the date!

This year's Hom 100 will take place on February 2, 2019. You can run, bike, walk, skip, scooter or skate any miles you want as long as you're out with us supporting the ALS Association and the memory of my friend Tony.


We've raised over $10,000 in 2018 and I'm looking forward to raising more in the coming year. It will be our 7th year running crazy loops around the neighborhood.

2018 Hom 100 - Save the date!

It's always a challenge to figure out the date for the Hom 100 each year. You have to be mindful of personal schedules, holidays, other races happening in the area. It's a balancing act of epic proportions trying to keep everyone happy.

Having said that, I'm happy to announce that the 6th annual Hom 100 will be on February 3rd, 2018.
So add it to your plans. Put it on your calendar. Include it in your training plans.

I'm looking forward to once again running in Tony's memory and raising money to support the ALS Association Arizona Chapter.
