Last year, when I was running at Diablo and Miwok, I met a lot of nice ultra-running folks from California. Now probably, because these events were in April and May the topic of conversation kept coming back to one question:
Are you going to Camp?
Of course, I had know idea what they were talking about and I was then filled in on a little something-something that happens every long weekend on the Memorial Day weekend. It's Western States Camp, a weekend gathering of ultra runners who gather to camp, socialize, run and train on the famous Western States Course. Sign me up.
So yes, I'm going to Camp!
This weekend: Western States Camp
Next weekend: Blackfoot Ultra
Weekend after that: weekend in Jasper including Banff-Jasper Relay.
I'm excited. Fun. Stuff. Happening. Let's. Go.
