High Desert Runner
I think the male Army runners from Kenya look like a force to reckon with. All the ADP guys that Simmons coaches are solid right now.
For women, I think Carrie and Courtney with Bowerman Track Club are super fit right now.
Lots of strong athletes and this will be a great course, but sadly the weather is supposed to be low 40s with rain and a couple days of snow prior to Saturday. Could be a cold, muddy/icy mess.
On a side note, where do most people stay in Bend for hotels? And is there a meet up anywhere Friday evening at a brewery? Any info. on best places to stay and drink beer are appreciated!
