WS100: Zach Miller and Ellie Greenwood – Not running

No, don’t get all excited, neither Zach nor Ellie are running Western States this year, but we still wanted to catch up with them and find out why they declined. They’re each at the top of their game, each were handed an entry, and both Zach and Ellie each said “no thanks.”

While Zach (Nike Trail Elite) is getting paid to play with LEGO in Colorado while he trains, Ellie (Montrail) has concentrated the last year on recovery and ya know, winning Comrades.

As twellieo elite runners who don’t have a bone in the game, let’s find what they think of the field this year.

Episode notes:

Cohosts: Ethan Veneklasen for Ellie and Nate Dunn ( for Zach.

Note: In my opening, I say “I’ll talk with two guys who…” ¬† Ms. Greenwood is certainly not a “guy”, and I apologize for the mistake.
