Fort Collins, Colorado resident, Alex May did everything all the other Western States 100 finishers did. He lined up at 5am at the start line in Squaw Valley, covered all the check points along the 100 miles of trail, ran around the Placer High School track, and crossed the finish line with people cheering loudly. His status on the WS100 site? “Dropped”.
Gary David was able to chat with Alex about his Western States adventure and talk about the range of feelings one experiences when he is the first finisher who runs out of time. Hope you enjoy the interview. Here’s Alex’s report.
