Western States 100 logoWhile we think iRunFar is pulling together some great pre-Western States content (you can find all of our Western States 100 coverage in one spot) and will be interviewing numerous runners over the next few days, others are sharing great stories as well. Below, we share some of these with you and we encourage you to leave a comment letting other iRunFar readers know of additional pre-race stories worth reading. We’ll be updating this article as we learn of other resources.

Also, if you want to follow along on race day, we’ll be tweeting live from the course all day, so be sure to follow iRunFar on Twitter or to tune into our Western States Live Coverage page starting early Saturday morning.
