I know I’m late on this, I can’t even wrap my head around the heat of the race and how that will effect outcomes. All these runners stories and strong sense of companionship and supporting one another,…it’s just so unique in the world of sports and in the realm of single competitors. I’ve listened to so many interviews. How can I pick?
Men – I just would like to see Eric Senseman place in the top 5, if not 10 because his mustache is killer. Plus that photo of him at Lake Sonoma is the best. All those cowboys will go down in history for the effect of their team mentality on this.
Women – Courtney Dauwaulter and Kaci Lickteig are humble, strong, reflective and amazing athletes. Listening to their interviews is inspiring. I hope Kaci places in the top three after her year last year and healing from a fractured hip. Courtney,..she will push everyone to do their best.
I am so looking forward to this!
