What’s the toughest task in getting ready for the high-profile whirlwind that is Western States? Heather Balogh-Rochfort sat down with race director Craig Thornley to learn what keeps him up at night and how he stays chill before the big day (Hint: his unwind is exercise related, but not trail running).
Next, Heather goes deeper into the field to deliver a trio of stories from the mid-pack – everyday heroes getting ready for their shot at the big dance.
