By this time tomorrow Greg and I will be looking up at the Cascades from the town Easton, Washington, making sure our swiss knot's are secure and thinking about the 100 miles of trail that lie in front of us. The Cascade Crest 100 starts on Saturday at 10am PST, with around 120 runners attempting to finish the 100 mile classic.
If you're interested in watching how it unfolds you can check out the webcast or Matt Hart's twitter feeds. That is if you can manage to pull yourself away from the UTMB race (which might be over by that point anyway). The coverage at Cascade is sure to be a little spotty with limited coverage around there, but it's better than nothing.
I'm not going to reveal the goals Greg and I have for the race, but I am cautiously optimistic that the cool temps that are predicted will go a long way in helping us achieve a decent time. Look for a full report next week and in the mean time good luck to all those tapering for Wasatch.
