St.Louis Ultra-Runner Jason Eads’ race report from the Squamish Stormy 100:
“What are you, a meteorologist????” It began with rain…
It’s amazing what I’ll let friends talk me in to. That’s how I think of STORMY 100 miler many months after I signed up earlier this year. My friend, Ean “Action” Jackson, exudes the type of persuasiveness that is just the sort to make me wonder: “should I REALLY do this???”, but then he makes it sound like it would be the best thing in the world and I’d feel like a fool to turn down such an awesome opportunity.
So, I put my name in for the race and decided I’d stack up a heavy duty Spring racing schedule so I’d have no excuses not to train. Not that I was taking those events early in the year lightly, but my “big” race for the year was UNDOUBTEDLY going to be STORMY. I really wanted to “show up” for this one!
