Jamie Hobbs is here to talk about the Big Dance. The Grand Daddy of 100s. The Okee-Dokie Hokey Pokey. That’s right, Mr. Hobbs Goes to Washington… err… Western. States.
A bit of the backstory after 3 years of qualifiers; Zane Grey, HellGate and Laurel Highland... with 4 tickets in the lottery, Jamie Hobbs got his name pulled. And when your name gets pulled, you don’t get a chance to think about it. No questions asked, you gotta go, right? Or maybe not.

Medved Running and Walking Outfitters; For more than 30 years Medved has been providing runners in Rochester with shoes, camaraderie, group runs and good ol'fashioned community building.
Located in Pittsford Colony Plaza at 3400 Monroe Avenue. Medved is family owned and believes strongly in supporting our community through supporting races and other local events.
They also sell all the running gear you are going to need including latest models of running shoes and pretty much the BEST selection of socks in the city. You can get expertly fit in a pair of shoes and run around their indoor track to test them out.
They have so many group runs leaving from the store including shoe demo runs, Lemonade Runs, hot chocolate runs... and my favorite the Harrier Games, a seasonally themed running scavenger hunt.
Oh... and most of the nutrition that Jamie had during Western (that wasn't from the aid stations) was from Medved, so there's that too.
