Is anyone else feeling very excited that it is Western States week?
Emmy and I are pretty dang excited. It’s pretty much Christmas week for ultra runners.
If you haven’t heard of Western States Endurance Run, it’s the worlds oldest 100 mile trail. The history of the race is super interesting, you can read about it here .
Billy Yang made a beautiful film about four pro women, it’s sooooooo good!
If you want to follow along:
- i run far has great coverage
- WSER website has a live webcast
- Trail Runner Nation is having a live podcast
All the fun starts on Saturday at 5 am PDT. While I won’t be able to follow it all live because who’s got time for that?!? I will be sure to check in throughout the day.
Will you follow along?
