You ever have something come up that you just can't get out of your mind. It could be the As@#^ driver from the morning commute, running a PR, that 14er you want to climb, well I have a new one. What is this new thing that occupies my thoughts this past week more that sex you ask. The Widest Run in the West 100K.
This little known run started in 2008, it started up again in 2009 but for unknown resaons was canceled. My friend Jim attempted the race in 2008, but 100+ August heat forced him and a lot of the field to stop early. i was out there it was crazy hot.
The allure to me beside the distance( I've never run a 100K) is the location of the course. The majority of it is on the WS100 route. I think the route and the tough conditions is what calls me to this race. Maybe running part of the WS100 course again will give me a little redemption for 2009 and a little mojo for 2011 lottery. Either way I'm adding this race to the schedule.
