Kilian shares his take on his third place finish at the 2010 Western States 100. For 78 miles, he ran essentially tied for the lead with Anton Krupicka before cramping and falling back to finish in 16:04:49 just ahead of Nick Clark. Kilian shares some of the mistakes he made (not carrying enough water, not enough heat training, and spending too much time in aid stations) and how he might correct them at the upcoming Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc … and next year at Western States. ;-)
