2008/02/29– Western States Endurance Run

I met a couple of guys today doing trail maintenance to qualify for the Western States Endurance Run (aka WS100). This is a 100 mile wilderness trail run through the California mountains (Squaw Valley to Auburn) to be completed in 30 hours or less. The two guys I talked to are attempting to complete the run in less than 24 hours. Wow. This is completely amazing to me since my best time for a trail (so far) is approximately 75 miles in about 4.5 days. Their pace definitely makes me look and feel like a turtle.

My hat’s off to you guys. Good luck!

P.S. I had to make an entry today since it’s not often that I get to post on February 29.
