One month from today I'll be here:Western States Start, as a matter of fact I'll be 20 minutes into the run, I'll be walking up the Olympic Village Ski Slope in Squaw Valley on my way here:
The Western States Finish:
I wish you all could be there to share this with me, but I know you have real jobs, and I can't afford to bring you all. Fortunately, my beautiful daughter Ali is going and my great friend Kristyn (who's stuck with me through thin and thinner!) are going to be there. Even though you can't be there you can keep track of me in real time. Using this link and knowing that my race number is 281: http://ws100.com/webcast/runnerquery.html
It's a handy tool. In 2005 when I did the race, Mom told me they had the whole convent up all night tracking me, and they knew that I finished in under 24 hours as I did it. She said they were freaking out when I went off the grid at mile 90 (I had stopped to get a blister fixed, but the webcast doesn't give you that info.)
Anyway, am I excited, yes I am! I hope you'll share the journey with me.
