I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

PM. In Winter Park, CO. Rested foot for a while, still not better. I think I'd be in good shape if not for it. Did 4 miles overdressed. Felt ok.

Final countdown to Western Stakes. I watched the Unbreakable movie this morning. I've been sleeping terribly, waking up 3:30 am most days, maybe due to 8500 ft elevation. Not the rest I wanted pre race. Race temps should be hot, above 100 deg F.

I will be bib 65. You can follow me at www.ultralive.net/ws100

They will also have love video on USL.tv and will have optional GPS tracking all race. Pretty cool. Not sure i will carry the gPS, but if I do, you can see where I am all race to the foot.

I'm very excited but calm. This is a race I've wanted to do for a long time. Uninjured and trained, I'd hope for top 10. As it is, I'm just hoping to finish. I've got a very relaxed view and plan to enjoy the whole journey with no pressure. Much different than any race I've done before. I'm looking forward to it.

Had a very enjoyable experience at the amazing Western States 100 and was lucky enough to even earn the coveted sub24 hr silver buckle. What a challenging, beautiful, well-run race. Truly a bucket list day with some great friends. Even saw the most inspiring running finish of my lifetime by Gundhild Swanson, the first 70+ yr female finisher, who ran the last section as fast as former Olympian and female winner, Magdalena Boulet, and was cheered in to beating the time limit by 5 seconds(http://www.usl.tv/gunhild-swanson-2015-western-states-finish/). I won't forget this race.
