Big, big miles. Awesome. It does make me feel better that you said you were feeling the '100 mile blues' on Tuesday. I needed to hear that you felt at least a little of that, so I know you are human. ;-)

Hi Mark, I saw you at the West Highland Way race in Scotland (good job by the way!), how do you rate the differences between the Western States 100 and the West Highland. ?

I am hoping to enter the Western States, in the next yr or 2 - fingers crossed.
