3am wake-up call. Arrived at Squaw ski area in 50 degree weather - perfect running weather. 3:45am breakfast at Squaw with Cat & Nora and chatted with a guy from PA who is out for his 1st 100 and Cat & Alex dispensed veteran advice. Rest of crew: Joan & Donald from Laguna Beach, CA, Bill & Ann from Anacortes, WA, and Maddie May from Fort Collins, CO (the most seasoned crew member here) joined us for the start. And Alex took off with ~380 fellow runners up the first 3 miles to High Camp and beyond..
Next stop: Robinson Flat @ mile 30. He runs; we drive all the way around for 3 hours. Ah, the life of a crew member.
