The countdown clock says 3 days, 22 hours and 47 min right now.
The weather network says 102 (not sure the C on that, but I know triple digits is hot).
If you are interested in following along at home, here are the official options:
1) Official splits and runner tracking are available on ultralive.net
. I am bib 197.
2) Runner tracking information will also be available in real time by Voice using Google Assistant (Android/iOS) or with devices like Google Home or Amazon Alexa.
Hey Google, ask Western States where is Ted Knudsen?
Hey Google, ask Western States where is runner number 127?
Alexa, enable Western States.
3) The Finish has a continuous live video feed on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/wser100/
and a short clip of every finisher crossing the line will also be available.
Also make friends with some of our travel companions (Barb, Sally). I'm sure they'll be posting to facebook when they can. At the very least it's worth it to see my great costum, er I mean running gear.
