Western States 100

So, it's official!  I'm working at the aid station at mile 62 of the Western States 100!!!!

I am very excited to be a part of my first ultramarathon.  I have been training for the past month gearing up for my first ultra, the Skyline 50k at the beginning of August.  So, to get a glimpse of these hard core ultramarathoners is going to be a real treat!

I'm hoping to meet "Last Place Jason" Robillard author of The Barefoot Running Book: A Practical Guide to the Art and Science of Barefoot and Minimalist Shoe Running.

Good luck to all runners racing this coming Saturday for the Western States 100!  See you there!


  1. This is so cool you are volunteering.
    Hope you'll get to take some pictures.

  2. Definitely going to take pictures! Also, I just found out that there is a possibility that I might pace a runner if they need someone! How awesome would that be! However, if I do get picked to pace, I will be running in VFFs not barefoot. I would feel terrible if I had a rough time navigating the course barefoot and couldn't support the runner I was pacing. It's about them, not me. But it will be awesome if I get to "race" in the WS100 even for just a portion!!!!
