I think the guy on twitter said it best. Sigue Jim Walmsley en cabeza de la ws100 en tiempos de record tras haber completado ya el primer tercio de carrera. Goooooooo!!!!!
Running while following the Western States leaderboard is a good mental exercise, a reminder that suffering is relative. 15:18 pace puts me solid mid-pack. I even went over my bridge with no hands. Tres haber completado indeed.
Sometimes when you go looking for something, you find something else entirely. That’s what happened to me today. And maybe that’s the point of looking in the first place. Everything felt fine. It’s OK to chase jackrabbits. It’s all in the cabeza.
Go, Walmsley! And maybe stay on the damn course this time.
