Headed up Thursday night. Maybe I'll figure out who those people are once I get up there. They sound fast.
I'm a rambler, I'm a gambler, I'm a green lumber handler, I'm a gypo from Pelican Bay....
Rocky II, if you are going to Squaw Valley then you should try to get the the runner's meeting. One of the WS traditions is the introduction of the top men and women in the race. As they say, it is a chance for the runners to see these guys "from the front".
Have fun crewing / pacing.
I'll be at mile 85 (ALT). We'll do our best for everyone. Unfortunately can't do anything about the weather or the dark....
1: Rob Krar
2: Mike Morton
3: Tim Olson
4: Cameron Clayton
5: Hal Koeroner
1: Rory Bosio
2: Emily Harrison
3: Aliza Lapierre
4: Nikki Kimball
5: Cassie Seallon
If Olson is feeling it, then him...(did I read somewhere he has had a few injuries to deal with???)
Nick Clarke if not. (Looking at NC's blog it looks like he has been in beast mode, think the 2nd place finishes have lit a fire under him and he wants it )
Just so many different variables come in to play in a race like this, it's hard to say.
Think there are a lot who can win this if they have their "day"
Le professeur de trail
Rob Krar - rookie to the 100 but watch out! He's gonna do some damage.
The incarnation of peacefulness and patience

Running with some trail friends 1/2 mile from the finish on Sunday. We plan on heading over there after our run to see those coming in just under 30 hours. Going to be fun.

100 miler virgin Cameron Clayton leading through 30...possible wild card? Impending blow up?
6/21 - Manitou's Revenge 54mi
A man may never run the same trail twice for it is not the same trail and he is not the same man
Looks like Olson ahead of Hal a couple of minutes around 50.
Follow it live on IrunFar ... getting interesting ...
Tim with a 10+ min lead at Forest Hill (62)...goes Tim, Hal, Krar...wish I could be there watching this live
Looks like an exciting race. Just came off the lake and even on the lake it is so hot here. Anything can happen. I was pretty sure that young buck wasn't going to last. This weather takes experience.
I need to sign up for a race..
Tim first to RC...106F
Sounds like Krar is moving well and is in 2nd...
