Once the Hardrock 100 begins (6 a.m. MST this Friday July 11), you can follow along with John's progress on the Hardrock site. Here is the main site link, which should have a Hardrock Live! link working once the race starts:
Run John Run! :)
Other people to watch:
Joe Prusaitis from Austin - go Joe!
Hans Dieter-Weisshaar from Germany (who put on the German 100 that we did a couple years ago and who is famous for much more than just that)
Markus Mueller who co-won the German 100 along with John (they ran together for half the race)
Matt Mahoney from Florida (who we don't actually know except through the Ultra listserve - but who missed the 48-hr finish by only a couple minutes the past 2 years)
I'm planning to meet John at Telluride, Ouray, Grouse Gulch, and Cunningham. No pacing planned for me - I don't know that I could keep up with him, even at the end (but I guess you never know!)
Good luck to all runners!
