This past Friday I had the opportunity to spend some time on the course of the Wasatch 100. I'll admit, what I saw confirmed that this race won't be going on my bucket list. I am no where near man enough to tackle that beast.
I was at the Big Mountain aid station and wandered a few miles up the trail to take pictures. It was a scorching day - the hottest in race history. I got a bit choked up seeing some runners deep inside the pain cave. I know that pain cave well. I really admired their bravery.
One of my highlights was seeing my friend Danny Wilderberg. The heat was really getting to him. And yet her persevered and finished the race!

I think this quote summarizes the spirit of 100 mile races:
Huge, huge congrats to all the finishers of the Wasatch 100!
