Western States Application Period

On the eve of the opening of the application period this showed up in my inbox.

The good, the bad, and the ugly.

AJ - every time I touch the course, I can't help but think of the blood, sweat, and tears that have made Western States what it is. Your guys' passion for the sport and this event is contagious for sure. Thank you!

Jakob, I appreciate your comments and hope that the ultra Gods shine on you this year so you can get in. Because once you do, I'm thinking you'll top-10 your way to 10 finishes for sure. And, when you do, I hope I'm there to give you your 10th buckle. I look forward to getting mine in 2013 and then walking into the sunset...

My dream is to toe the line in Squaw next June...and then kiss the track after the finish at Placer HS.

thanks, I hope so too, on all fronts you mentioned. I have a feeling 2012 will be deep like last year. maybe another year where sub-17 gets you 10th or better? I'm hoping for a 100+ degree day with Lyon and red star included. can't wait to see you quiet the naysayers again with another top 10 finish.
