A documentary of Jimmy Brown and his quest to complete the 2017 Western States 100. The film is much more than about Jimmy. It is a celebration of ultrarunning and trailrunning from the perspective of an average runner. It is also a celebration of the community that exists with the Greater Omaha Area Trailrunners (GOATz), RunnerChurch from Omaha and our connection to Omaha''s own Kaci Lickteig. The statement "See You In Squaw" has much deeper meaning than simply a friendly acknowledgement to another runner.
For an ultrarunner, the significance of the statement is simple yet profound. It is a statement that we ultrarunners all strive to be able to say one day. It signifies that you will soon be experiencing the Grand Daddy of them all, whether as a runner or a pacer. It has much more meaning as a runner, as it expresses, in just four words, something very special to those that know WSER or have experienced it. Those four words tell a whole story about sacrifice, perseverence, determination, guts, training, passion, goals and community. Those four words do not guarantee anything about your experience at the race or how you finish or not finish. They are not words of competition but words of bonding, words of connection and words of community that few will ever experience. Regardless of age, sex or demographics, when you meet another person going to WSER, those four words are not simply a polite gesture of connecting again at the race. Those four words embody all emotions and feelings that rise from your heart and soul. It's almost a perfect slice of life in four words, where things are perfect and all things are aligned. Nothing but love, nothing but hope that is expressed by those four words.
