The grand daddy of American ultra races, the Western States 100, is this weekend. Irunfar has extensive coverage planned, which I’ll be following religiously. I’d love to see Rob Krar and Alex Varner do well, but its a long race, and there are a lot of talented runners out there. Should be a good race.
In honor of Western, here’s a video with Gordy Ainsleigh, the first person to ever run the course (when it was still a horse race). This guy is a total inspiration.
