FF: You’re running the Western States Endurance Run at the end of June. Will this be your longest race ever?
YF: I've run one 100-mile race before, the Ouray 100, which is known as one of the hardest hundreds out there. I wanted my first hundred to be a challenging course rather than a flat one. It was brutal, but it gave me what I wanted.
Western States is going to be different because it's a bit quicker since there's not as much climbing. I just ran 70 miles of the course when I was out at training camp.
Running a 100-miler takes a lot of effort to get yourself fit for it, and then to get out there and put one foot in front of the other. The whole thing is a mental game. You have to tell yourself you can do it. It's hard, but it's manageable.
