WMRC 6/29

Heyo! We are on for a group trail run of about an hour Wed morning at 5:16 am. Meet at top lot of SQ PK DR.

Runner of the week goes to WMRC veteran and real life veteran Bill Barthen. Bill finished the WS 100 for the 2nd time. 23 and a hlf hrs, battling stomach issues and some sort of limp. Bill is a tough MoFo. Congrats bud!
Other Phoenix runners at States this year were Craig Norquist-27+hrs, Rich McKnight-29:50, Dan Brendan-Duh-if there is a 100 he is there, Toni Vaughn 29 hours. Wanna know how it feels to finish at WS 100...

Coming up.... WMRC'ers in the Hardrock 100 in about 3 weeks. Andrew Heard and Nick Coury, both are looking good for a strong showing up in Silverton.

See everyone Wed morning. 5:16 am.

I could win that race and wouldn't need to use a folding lawn chair as a stretcher afterwards. Great job to all you 2 legged runners out there, don't know how you do it.

Hey, I know you are about to pass out, but let me pour this water down your throat while you are laying down......isn't that how the Led Zepplin drummer died?....Good idea Mr.Guy with water bottle.

Great Job Rich! Don't know how you were running so fast at the end on the verge of going down, the definition of "giving it your all"

Also Bill and Craig are doing the Grand Slam of Ultras, Up next Vermont 100 then AC 100 and then Wasatch i think. Giant cahones to take on that kind of challenge.

Let's not forget to give props to the undisputed King of the Squaw Peak pull up bar Grandpa Jim Fowler on his 100k finish in the Black Hills this past weekend. Nice work Jim.
