“All we need is a little validation, right? And I think that’s what the race does. Western States help validate what’s inside of us. It helps bring out our best urges, not our worst ones, our best ones.”

John Trent is a runner and author of Second Sunrise. He is the past president of the Western States 100, current board member and 11-time finisher. In this episode recorded live at Fleet Feet Sacramento, Luis and co-host Sean Garbutt chat with John about all things Western States like the lottery process, stories about runners through the years, what makes Western States 100 so special, and his book Second Sunrise.
