Western States 100- Best Race I have ever run !!
Defending champ Hal Koerner crossing the American River
Tomorrow is the 2009 running of the Western States 100 mile in Squaw Valley,CA. I ran this race back in 2003 and let me just say I feel so lucky to have be able to run it. I dream of doing it once more. This was the first 100 mile trail run in the U.S.A back in the day. It in my mind is still the best. This years race field is pretty stacked with some good runners. I am looking forward to watching the race web cast on the Western Sates web site www.ws100.com to see how the race shakes out. I would say check in during the day and see how it is going !!! This is my picks for the top 3.
Mens: 1) Dave Mackey 2) Scott Jurek 3) Hal Koerner
Womens: 1) Nikki KImball 2) Jenn Shelton 3) Krissy Moehl
