If you got something critical to say, sign your damn name to it! #cheapshot
Sometimes in order to experience ALL of a race, we must do more than just run it. There are several 100′s where I have worked an aid station, paced slow and fast runners, did trail work, gave advice, and also competed as a runner. I can honestly say that my relationship to the people, course, and runners is deeper from having experienced all facets of the race, and not just the run part. You are a special exception in that even the years you run WS (and finished top 10), you still led discussion panels and volunteered so folks like me could get our first true taste of what you have grown to love since 2004. You’ll be back at that chilly Squaw Valley start before you know it, and hopefully so will I. But for now enjoy the view from the other side, because it’ll make that next trip around Placer track that much more meaningful.
