There is really only one reason why you should enter Western States and that needs to be repeated... There is only one reason why you should enter Western States... After running the damn course in sub 23:27:32, you can run by Ken Ward , slap him on the ass, and let him know, "Hey Ken, I am still faster then Mike." Need any other reason?

6) Your ability to push yourself to set a new course records
5) The scramble sections to get back to the start line
4) No Party at Brown's Bar, just You and a beer.
3) You'll need to find your sock, your water bottle, and your car
