I'm not a bettin' woman, but I'm so pumped about this year's Western States 100 that I decided to partake in a little wager (of course, this doesn't involve me putting any money down on anything, or even winning any moola, but if I won it would be pretty sweet bragging rights!).
I've put in my choices for top 8 men and top 8 women overall finishers for the race, taking place on June 26 and 27, beginning in Squaw Valley, CA and ending in Auburn, CA. I can't wait to see what happens! I won't share who I picked (and did not pick), but I feel pretty confident about who's going to win, and who is going to drop out at mile 81 due to "dehydration" :)

It's like Big Ten brackets...for ultrarunners :)
Killian Journet will win.
He lives and runs in the mountains in Spain/France and has won UTMB in the past. Look for him in the top three if his name isn't listed as the winner. 8-)
Interesting pick, Senator. You think he'll bounce back from his 700 mile/kilometer-whatever trek he just completed in the Pyrenees not too long ago? Or any of the other super-human feats he's managed of late? I think he'll be pretty beat by the time he toes the line at WS. But, then again, I don't know that much about him. He's in my top 8, but not top 3, not by a long shot :)
