Western States 2012

Thank you to everyone that made this years Western States 100 so Magical. It will forever be a moment in my life i will always remember. I could not have done this with out the love and support of my wife Krista and my son Tristan, this one was for you!

Also a big thank you to my crew of Bob and Debbie Loomis, Cathy Gruninger, Shahid Ali and Carly Koerner. Also my pacers Hal Koerner and Chris Rennaker, you both pushed and prodded me to a new course record! I could not have done it with out your knowledge of the course and your great friendship, thank you.

I am also so grateful for my family back in Wisconsin, who have loved and supported me my whole life. I could hear you cheering for me from Wisconsin, thank you! And to Ashland, my home, all of you cheering for me back there and to a big crew of you who were in charge of Browns Bar (Aid Station, mile 89), great work and great cheering. Also to all my friends who were cheering me on, from all over the world, all day and sending positive vibes to me, i could feel all the love and i’m eternally grateful.

  4. Enjoyed following you the whole race, Tim. Even from a computer, it was amazing to watch. You would have enjoyed the comments on the iRF board that “Once Tim’s shirt comes off, he’s a lock for the win.” Congrats.
