Fast forward a year and here we are again. This Saturday, June 27 there will be some anxious people lined up at the starting line at Squaw Valley especially those who were ready a year ago. Do you think they are ready now? Just ask Marian Yasuda and Ernest Tay how they are feeling about this years race after the disappointment of last year. I believe they have both channeled that disappointment in training even harder and with more focus for this year. Additionally from Hawaii Stephanie (Reina) Jenkins and Gil Loomis are there to run as well. All 4 runners are ready to go.
They have their support teams and pacers in place as well.
The race starts at 5:00 a.m. Pacific time on Saturday. That is 2:00 a.m. Hawaii time. You can follow the webcast here.
You can also sign up to recieve e-mail updates of specific runners here. Pretty great today with all the technology it makes it pretty easy to follow along with the race to see how runners are doing.
We wish all the runners the best. Strong legs, cool breezes in the valleys, and just do your best.
