I'm really happy for my friends down in South American that via this new qualifying race they finally are being recognized as the premier mountain runners that they are. I think it's great that the WS100 board finally did something about this oversight. I know they're busy, but I think they have been too "national" in their long-range planning. Don't worry USA friends, there are plenty of 100 milers for you to walk around! Let's be global and give everyone a chance to see our amazing country!
I'll be walking around as many 100 milers as I can in the next year or so, USA friends. I hope to see you all there! You can tell me I'm a dickhead to my face!
