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" :)
