Pacing at Western States 100 Miler = Motivation
western states 100 – it’s the oldest and most prestigous 100 mile ultra in the world. they run from tahoe to auburn california.
fellow montrail-nathan ultrarunner bev abbs lost her pacer.. and i’ve been asked by to pace her for the last 40 miles of the course! how sweet is that? bev, who holds the course record at the vermont 100 and won the coastal challenge this year (among other incredible ultra feats) – wins a lot. she’s placed 2nd twice at western. i’m looking forward to helping her run her best this year. it’s going to be awesome to finally get to experience this race first hand. i can’t wait!
