Western States Taper Run 6.23.10

Reminder: Group trail run in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve tomorrow morning, 5:15 AM. Meet at the very top lot of Squaw Peak Drive. Plan on a little over one hour at a slow to moderate pace.

Runners of the Week: Congrats to Jody Chase (new Colorado Resident) who ran the Big Horn 100 mile trail run in Wyoming. She was having a stellar race through the first 48 miles until her IT band started acting up. Battling 28 degree temps at night she gutted it out to finish in 28:40. Way to get it done Jody.

Jeff Jones completed his season slam of running the four hardest 50 mile races within a two month period. Jeff ran the San Juan Solstice 50 mile on Saturday finishing in 14:07:41. Now Jeff has to rank the all and give us all a little perspective.

Huge weekend: Saturday is the granddaddy of them all. The Western States 100 mile trail run from Squaw Valley to Auburn. We have 3 runners from the Group. Andrew Heard, Jamil Coury and Jon Roig. Good luck to you all. The Western States has the best Webcast out there for 100 mile races. Follow along. This years field is incredible. Who is going to win: Koerner, Roes, Krupicka, Killian, Clark, Brimhall. The list goes on and one. Follow our local boys and the whole race here. Western States 100 Mile Webcast
