A Personal Reflection On The 2017 Western States 100

Thank you for the thoughts TJ! I was lucky enough to see every runner come through DT halfway, and the range of their experiences was astounding to say the least. From Jim and Yiou storming through, looking smooth and determined, only to drop; to Cat Bradley and Jeff running smart and passing up to top finishes; to those who looked like death warmed over like Steph Howe and Wardian, only to keep soldiering on to just over 24 hours. The faces of Gary Wang and Gunhild and Craig made impressions for their 100 mile wisdom. And one runner who literally passed out and fell off the trail below DT, only to make it to DT and go on to finish! There were tears too, for those who missed the cutoff. What a race!
