HE DID IT! We had Preston on the podcast a few weeks back as he prepared for his 2nd 100-miler and 1st Western States 100. He threw down a goal of sub 24 and he went out and got it.
We want to congratulate Preston again for his accomplishment and hard work. He not only is a fantastic trail runner but a great dude!
Listen to his race breakdown- it's awesome!

Preston Wood received good news the first time he put in for the Western States 100 lottery last year and has been training hard ever since. We had a great time talking with Preston and cannot wait to get him back on after the race. He sat down with us the day before he raced the Squaw Peak 50 and we grilled him on his upcoming Western race. He is such a great guy and we cannot send enough good vibes for his trip to Auburn later this month. Good Luck Preston- TrailManners will be sending all the good mojo your way!
***Update on his 2018 Squaw Peak 50- In the podcast he mentined his goal is to go under 10:30. Preston finished in 9:37
