      Western States 100 June 2016

        It was really good.  That's the year my friend, Kate, got into  WS and her sister and I crewed for her.  Our buddy, Russ (3 nonjoggers) did an audio piece on Kate and Hal Koerner (2-time winner trying for a third versus the perspective a first time runner just wanting to finish).  He's in a number of the shots because of his following Hal.

         

        Watching the movie brought back a lot of good memories.  We were sitting out at Michigan Bluff waiting for Kate to come through, and Karen's housesitter was following the race on line and texting us with updates of the showdown.  It was an amazing, exciting thing to be a part of.
