WS Lottery!

Update: I'll be spending the rest of the day looking for a new 100 to run this year since I didn't get selected for WS. I have some energy left because of the auto refresh on the WS site. Great new feature! For those runners that didn't get selected there is always next year. For those that want to have their own little pity fest and complain about the entry qualifications I'll say "Boo Waa!". Life goes on! I'm open to suggestions for 100 milers on the West Coast. Then there is always Mont Blanc hmmmm.

I'll be spending the day hitting the refresh key on my computer. My fingers are crossed. www.ws100.com

I'll be watching as well and hoping that you get in again and allow me to join your crew for another attempt. You're a stronger and smarter runner now and a big dumb ass to boot. You can't lose!

Just checked the results - sorry, Eric!

Eric,
You and I can have a little pity party, but some of my deserving buddies got in, including two fellow Trail Nerds.

Happy trails,
Bad Ben

Wes said...

Good luck! Let us know how it turns out please :-)

Eric,
Looking at the accepted applicants, it pays to live in California. You need to move, dude!
- Considering in Kansas

I didn't get in either, but I guess I'll be in for sure, in 2010.

yes a lot from california got in. 158, yes i know it says 157 but alan abbs will get in as sunsweet gets to name a runner. 27.96% from california got in. 26% got in from washington. 37.1% from oregon got in.

sorry you didn't get in eric.

what month(s) did you want to run your 100??? you did great at ccc, doing it again???

Meghan said...

Sorry Eric. It's a bummer. Bighorn? That's close by here!

Jon said...

Sorry you didn't get into WS100 this year, but there's always next year to get your revenge. :-)

So...see you at CCC for your 100 miler maybe?

If the comments are right and you didn't get in, sorry Eric. But maybe it's fate! The tour du Mont Blanc is a great one, tough as anything. Piece of cake to an athlete like you! ;-) (It fills up fast too!)

Don't know much about Canadian Death race. Will most likley head to Bighorn. Jess from SoCA is planning to make a 100 miler there in June...there is also TRT, and I know lots about this one.

Sorry you don't get to take your revenge on WS next year. I was hoping to see that firsthand.
