I have 8 weeks off to hopefully train and get in great running shape! I have a few side jobs lined up but nothing major. We aren't traveling a lot this summer just weekend trips and hopefully climbing a bunch of 14er's!
On my first day of break a really great friend of mine invited me on a crazy hard trail run. She is moving to Steamboat, CO and I will miss her tons! We met at the trailhead near Nederland, CO. I met some great women! One had run the Leadville 100 four times!!! Another lady participated in the Leadwomen. She did ALL of this:
Entrants compete in Trail Marathon, Leadville Silver Rush 50-Mile Mountain Bike Race, a 10K, Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race, and Leadville Trail 100-Mile Run.HOLY CRAP!! I can't even imagine.
This summer I am volunteering for the Leadville 100 just to see what it's like. I would like to get into ultras in the next few years. I just wish my body would cooperate.
|At the beginning|
|Lots of water along the way|
|Rollins Pass above (old RR tracks).|
|David and I on those RR tracks Labor Day 2011!!!|
|Almost made it to the continental divide but too much snow...why not slide down :)|
Has anyone ran the Leadville 100?
