This is my training diary for the 2007 Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run, which was also my first 100 mile ultra. I recommend that you read the top post first ("Race Day Report") and then go to the first post (at the bottom) and read them in chronological order from bottom to top. It will take you a few days to absorb all the information here, but if you are an average runner like me, it will help you in many ways (particularly if it is your first WS100). I hope it will encourage you to run WS as you will have a life changing experience in the process. If you then want to read how to finish the race in under 24 hours, go to http://2010ws100.blogspot.com and read about my second Western States run!
