Western States Photos

Rex Vlcek took some great photo's of this past weekend's Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run. Click here or scroll down the right side of the blog, under Photo Albums, to see a glimpse of what this race is all about.

If you want to meet a couple of the WS participants and hear first-hand about their experiences, come out to the Kaena Point, Firecracker 10-mile Race on Saturday morning and talk story with Bob Murphy and Jeff Huff. Of course, pacer and photographer Rex Vlcek and pacer Cheryl Loomis will also have their stories to tell as well.


Reminder: Western States 100 Webcast

Just a quick reminder: Don't forget to check out www.ws100.com this weekend to follow the progress of Hawaii runners, Jeff Huff (#215) and Bob Murphy (#304) at the Western States 100. Other H.U.R.T. friends running the race include Leon Draxler (144) and Monica Scholz (F7). This 100 mile race goes from Squaw Valley to Auburn, CA.

Here's the direct link to the web cast: http://www.ws100.com/webcast/home.html

If you look at the participant list (click here), many other past H.U.R.T. 100 participant's will also be running the race. It should be quite an interesting race this year with lots of snow towards the start due to the exceptionally wet winter and spring in the Sierra Nevada mountains and all of California for that matter.

Otherwise, see you out on the trails!


H.U.R.T. Runners at the Rock & Roll Marathon

Two other H.U.R.T. runners were MIA (missing in action) from this past weekend's Mango Madness race. Their where-abouts have now been confirmed.

Marian and Neal Yasuda were in San Diego running in the Rock and Roll Marathon. This is a big race with over 17,000 finishers.

Marian ran a 3:53 and Neal's time was 4:07. Great job!
