While 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 we’ve interviewed numerous runners the past few days, others are creating 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.
Before we get started, we’d like to remind you that, if you don’t want to miss any of our Western States coverage, you can subscribe via RSS or via email.
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.
iRunFar’s coverage of the 2013 Western States 100 is brought to you by Injinji.
