She might be the favorite here. She's done well for herself since entering the ultrarunning world in 2009, having won numerous races, including the Mountain Masochist 50-miler. This will be her first 100-miler! Last year's female winner, Anita Ortiz (who will not be running WS this year due to a knee injury) seems to favor her. "I think [she] will rock it this year," she predicts. We will see.
She's won it three of the five times she's run!
She's done very well at 50-milers, having set a course record for the JFK 50. She also came in second in the Miwok 100k in May.
