Each person on the Official Final Start List will be given an automatic entry to the 2009 event

The above title comes directly from the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run web site.
That’s some good news.

I received this photo from Marian’s sister. You can see it’s pretty smoky. Cheryl said they will bring back other photos with them. Kinda looks like our recent bad Vog days here in Hawaii.

If you want to read about how Ultra runners deal with something like this, go over to Don’s site and read this post.

Cheryl is returning Saturday. Neal and Marian are going to stay and visit with friends. I am not sure about Ernest and Fish. Safe travels and try to find some clean air to breath!
