Best of luck to Nattu this weekend as he tackles the granddaddy of ultras, the 40th running of the Western States 100-mile Endurance Run. The forecast calls for brutally hot conditions this year, with several sections of the course likely in triple digits. But for a Badwater veteran like Nattu he should be ok with the heat. Race starts Saturday 500a PT, you can follow along with the live webcast here:

Also, best of luck to Rita who is tackling the Pacific Crest Marathon just a week after running the Seattle Rock & Roll marathon. You go girl!

Good luck, you guys. WSER has come a long way from its humble beginnings.

It's gotten W(i)SER, I hear.

Sorry.

Good luck Nattu, Rita, and anyone else who is running this weekend!

Nattu finished Western States in 29:12. Second hottest year ever. I cannot imagine what the hottest year was like.
