Best Ultra Run Experience:
Western State 100 6-24-00
So far, it is like the ultimate challange. I was treated very well and it felt good. The aid stations and volunteers were very supportive
Umstead 100 miles - N. CArolina - April 2000: Running 10 loops around a park, constant weather changes.
Western States 100 miles - June 24,2000
Running from dusk through dawn, up and down canyons. Altitude of 8700 ft. Heat condition of 94 degrees. Crossing a cold water river that reached my chest.
I love the challange.
I will consider it to be an ultimate challange, due to severe weather conditions. It is a distance of 135 miles.
