What Happened to Jim Walmsley at Western States?

When you get to Michigan Bluff, you’re just thinking that you have to make it to Forest Hill [mile 62]. You get to see everybody there and your crew. It’s just a huge, uplifting moment. I could switch shoes, switch socks, you pick up your pacer, which Tim Frerichs was picking me up at that point. I was excited to share some miles with him. You know you’re getting into the more flowing Cal Street section, which theoretically should be easy, relatively. Forest Hill was the beginning of what ended up being the end. I could tell from miles 40 through 60 that, probably because the pace in the warmer weather, my stomach wasn’t feeling as good and I wasn’t eating as many calories. I knew I was getting behind on calories.
